The competition figures to be even more spirited than in 2005. Two linebackers many consider the best in the history of the program — Shane Conlan and current star Paul Posluszny — will have at it in the second round if both make it through their opening tilts.
The rest of Prato's Top 16 reads like a who's-who of Penn State greats, from Arrington to Buttle to Collins to D'Onofrio, nearly every letter of the alphabet is covered.
So without further delay we unveil Lou Prato's seedings. Stayed tuned to FOS over the next couple of days. The voting will be held on our free Audibles Message Board and we will have updates on our front page.
Note: Posluszny is still active and figures to move up on Prato's list with a strong senior season. But for now he checks in at No. 5.
