There are a couple notable changes to the depth chart following Penn State's bye week.

Offense

Pos. First Team Second Team Third Team
QB Sean Clifford Will Levis Ta'Quon Roberson OR Michael Johnson Jr.
RB Noah Cain OR Journey Brown OR Ricky Slade OR Devyn Ford - -
WR-X Justin Shorter OR Daniel George Cam Sullivan-Brown -
WR-H Jahan Dotson Dan Chisena Weston Carr
WR-Z KJ Hamler Mac Hippenhammer Isaac Lutz

LT Rasheed Walker Des Holmes Bryce Effner
LG Steven Gonzalez  Mike Miranda Bryce Effner
C Michal Menet Mike Miranda Hunter Kelly
RG CJ Thorpe OR Mike Miranda - Anthony Whigan
RT Will Fries Des Holmes Caedan Wallace

Notes: 

  • Cain has moved to the top spot, despite all four running backs still listed with an OR.
  • Similarly, Thorpe has moved to the top spot of the OR with Miranda for the first time.
  • Carr and Lutz have flipped third-team slots.

defense

Pos. First Team Second Team Reserves
DE Shaka Toney   Jayson Oweh Adisa Isaac
1-DT PJ Mustipher Judge Culpepper Hakeem Beamon
3-DT Robert Windsor Fred Hansard Damion Barber

MLB Jan Johnson Ellis Brooks Jesse Luketa
WLB Micah Parsons Jesse Luketa Lance Dixon
CB John Reid Trent Gordon Marquis Wilson
S Lamont Wade Jaquan Brisker Drew Hartlaub
S Garrett Taylor Jonathan Sutherland CJ Holmes
CB Tariq Castro-Fields Keaton Ellis DJ Brown

Notes:

  • Antonio Shelton is suspended and the depth chart reflects that, though interestingly Beamon makes his first chart as a third-teamer over Aeneas Hawkins.
  • Donovan Johnson remains off of the depth chart, and Joey Porter Jr. is replaced on the third team by DJ Brown.
  • John Reid and Trent Gordon are both listed, which hopefully bodes well for their injury status.
