Penn State Spring Practice – Five (Non QB) Questions

Happy spring football, Penn State!  After several weeks of our counterparts around the country kicking off their spring drills, the Nittany Lions join the fun today.  Coming off last year’s emotional 8-4 season, expectations for the predicted collapse of PSU football under the weight of the sanctions has waned, replaced by cautious optimism for what the future holds.  That all starts today, and culminates on April 20th with the Blue White Game in Beaver Stadium.

All eyes will be on the quarterback competition that will feature Steven Bench and Tyler Ferguson over the next 14 practices and spring game, and rightfully so.  But there are plenty of other stories to keep an eye on over the next few weeks. We’ve got 5 of them for you right here.

    Good analysis.
    While the competition at QB will attract the most attention, I’m more intrigued by the move of Cadogan & Golden from offense to defense. Although none of us really know who will eventually win “starting positions”, I think those two moves will prove key to putting the best talent that we have available on the field in September.

      I’m definitely intrigued by Golden to D. His high school film showed a very athletic player, and I love the idea of a bigger CB (6’1″), which I’m guessing is where he’ll end up, as opposed to safety.

      I’m biased, but I really think leadership is going to be huge. There was so much natural charisma around last year’s seniors, plus the “us against the world” mentality. There will still be some of that, but not like 2012. Any good team has excellent leadership form within, and it’s going to be really neat to see who amongst this team steps into that void.
