Several freshmen will get on the field at Beaver Stadium for the Nittany Lions in 2013.

The Penn State Nittany Lions will head into the 2013 season with a solid group of freshmen who will have an early opportunity to see time on the field. The graduations of several key players have caused holes in the roster that must be filled.

Luckily, head coach Bill O'Brien has put together the 24th-best class in the nation according to ESPN. He will have some talented players to help fill out his 2013 roster.

Lack of depth on the defensive line and at linebacker means that O'Brien and his staff will need to use some newcomers in the rotation. As a whole, the defensive side of the ball will need depth.

While some of the top recruits, quarterback Christian Hackenberg and tight end Adam Breneman, are likely to receive a redshirt, others will be asked to step in and contribute immediately.

The slides that follow highlight five incoming freshmen who have the best shot at seeing the field during the 2013 campaign.

Note: Only true freshmen were considered for this slideshow.
