The Top 10: Fan Vote

FightOnState.com readers rate the 10 best Nittany Lions for the 2013 season. See which All-Big Ten performer caught No. 1 honors.

Penn State fans have sized up the 2013 version of the Nittany Lions, and have come up with the 10 PSU players they think are the best of best.

Last week, we polled a panel of experts, asking them to rank the top 10 Nittany Lions for 2013. You can check out the various lists here: READ THE STORY.

But we also wanted to give the fans a chance to express their opinions on the topic, and they did. Below, you will find the results of our fan poll.

Not surprisingly, returning Big Ten Receiver of the Year Allen Robinson was the overwhelming fan favorite as Penn State's top player. He earned more first-place votes than the rest of the field combined.

DB Adrian Amos and DE Deion Barnes were second and third, respectively, followed by offensive guard John Urschel, the first senior on our list. Only two seniors, Urschel and LB Glenn Carson (No. 10), made the fan top 10.

As the list below reflects, 12 players received most of the top 10 votes. After that, however, there was a significant drop-off to No. 13 -- true freshman quarterback Christian Hackenberg.

Fans only voted for a top 10, with first-place votes worth 10 points, second-place votes worth nine points and so on. Overall, 47 players received at least one vote. You can see the top 25 below, with players' names followed by their score in the poll. First-place votes are in parenthesis.

It should be noted that there was noting remotely scientific about this poll.
