While some could point to the fact that Penn State doesn't have a clear starting quarterback yet, it needs to be noted that the Nittany Lions have a wealth of talent on offense.
Key starters from last year will join with talented freshmen to give the Nittany Lions one of the most potent offenses in the Big Ten.
Allen Robinson, the top receiver in the conference last season, will be a focal point of the offense in 2013. While he'll draw the most attention from opposing defenses, there are others who bear watching.
Brandon Moseby-Felder and Alex Kenney both saw action last year, and redshirt freshman Eugene Lewis has been pegged as a player to watch in 2013.
Penn State returns three tight ends, Kyle Carter, Jesse James and Matt Lehman, who were all important and successful in the passing attack last year. Cater was second on the team in receiving yards while James and Lehman were second and third respectively in touchdowns.
As much talent as the Nittany Lions have in the receiving corps, there's just as much in the backfield.
2012 starter Zach Zwinak, who rushed for 1,000 yards and six touchdowns, returns to lead a solid running back committee. Bill Belton, a talented playmaker who may find the most success in the slot, will also be a key player in 2013.
Redshirt freshman Akeel Lynch, who's another player to watch this year, looked good in the spring game, running for 83 yards and a touchdown. Deron Thompson, who ran for 97 yards in the spring game, could also factor into the 2013 backfield mix.
Aside from the skill positions, the Nittany Lions also have an experienced offensive line returning.
With all the weapons on offense, this team is going to be able to score a lot of points this season and hang with anyone it faces.
