Penn State Releases Week 1 Depth Chart

See who is listed where on the depth chart as the Nittany Lions prepare to face Temple in the 2015 season-opener.

Tuesday morning, Penn State finally announced its depth chart for Saturday's season-opener at Temple. Not that there were any super pressing questions that figured to be answered by the first depth chart of 2015.

The one key issue through most of of the preseason was whether junior college transfer Paris Palmer would maintain the starting left offensive tackle job he earned in the spring. But head coach James Franklin put that to rest last week, when he said Palmer would get the nod to start the season.

On player notably absent from the depth chart is redshirt sophomore tight end Adam Breneman. Three other TEs are listed.

Otherwise, the starting units on offense and defensive have been fairly well set for weeks now. 

Special teams is a different story, though. For the opener, redshirt freshman walk-on Joey Julius has emerged as the starting kicker. Daniel Pasquariello has gotten the nod over Chris Gulla in a punting competition that dates back to last season.
