Updated 2012 Projected Depth Chart

With 13 confirmed defections since Penn State head coach Bill O'Brien took over in January - some due to NCAA sanctions, some to discipline, and others for a variety of reasons unrelated to sanctions - it's time to take another tentative look at what the Nittany Lions will be working with when preseason camp opens on Monday, August 6.

The following is a detailed look at Penn State's depth chart, combining the official depth chart released June 5, incoming freshmen, walk-ons listed on the roster, and our educated guesses as to where players will fill in.

This is by no means meant to reflect exactly what team each player is on entering camp, or even accounts for inevitable position changes that will take place in the next few days as a result of all of the defections.

Instead, this is to give a general idea of the players Penn State has at positions across the football field.
