Charting the PSU Weight Gainers and Losers

Check out the Nittany Lions who are bigger and smaller than their listed numbers from last season.

Penn State’s spring football roster is out.

While the heights and (especially) the weights on the Nittany Lions’ official rosters have been known to be fairly unreliable through the years, they are all anyone can go with until reporters have a chance to directly ask the players how tall they are how much they way. For example, tackle Andrew Nelson was listed in the low 300s for most of last season, but told us after one press conference that he weighed at least 315.

That said, even though the numbers must be taken with a grain of salt, they are kind of useful for comparison purposes. Below, we note the Penn State players whose weights on the current roster changed by six or more pounds from the final 2014 roster (’14 weights shown in parenthesis). You can check out the gainers and losers (and we mean that in the kindest sense of the word) below.

Spring practice starts Friday for the Nittany Lions.
