Penn State's depth chart has stabilized a bit, but there are still some things to figure out.


Pos. First Team Second Team Third Team
QB Will Levis OR Sean Clifford Ta'Quan Roberson -
RB  Devyn Ford Caziah Holmes OR Keyvone Lee -
WR-X KeAndre Lambert-Smith Daniel George TJ Jones
WR-H Parker Washington Isaac Lutz Justin Weller
WR-Z Jahan Dotson Cam Sullivan-Brown Malick Meiga
TE/H Pat Freiermuth Brenton Strange Zack Kuntz, Theo Johnson
LT Rasheed Walker Will Fries Des Holmes
LG Mike Miranda Des Holmes Sal Wormley
C Michal Menet Mike Miranda Juice Scruggs
RG Will Fries CJ Thorpe Anthony Whigan

  • Will Levis and Sean Clifford are now listed as co-starters at quarterback. Who knows who the Nittany Lions will go with to start things off, but both should get a lot of run.
  • KeAndre Lambert-Smith has overtaken Daniel George as the starter. This has been a revolving door all season, but KLC can lock down this job with a good week.
