Eighteen players have left Penn State since spring practice. With the season halfway over, it is now possible to gauge the consequences of the departures for Penn State, as well as the fortunes of those who left. Though the losses clearly affected the team's depth, only a handful of the transferred players have been significantly missed. Many of them, particularly wide receivers and tight ends, might have found more success in Bill O'Brien's system than the ones in which they are now playing.
