1. Donovan Smith
2. Chasz Wright
Donovan Smith is the veteran of the bunch and without question the most talented player on Penn State's offensive line. Chasz Wright enrolled in classes a few months ago and seems to be transitioning well. At 6'6", 321 pounds, he already has the size to play in the Big Ten and will provide depth at right tackle too.
1. Derek Dowrey
2. Brian Gaia
Both of these players were playing defensive tackle last season. With the injury to Miles Dieffenbach, Penn State now has to deal with inexperience at left guard. Still, Derek Dowrey and Brian Gaia looked good in spring ball and should be serviceable in 2014.
1. Wendy Laurent
2. Angelo Mangiro
Angelo Mangiro could still win the spot, but his versatility to play guard could force Franklin to stick with Wendy Laurent as the starting center. He is the only true center on the team (Mangiro was recruited as a guard), which bodes well for his chances to win this position battle.
1. Angelo Mangiro
2. Brendan Mahon
The starter at right guard might be determined by who wins the battle for the center job. Mangiro can play both positions, but if the coaches feel confident in redshirt freshman Brendan Mahon's ability to contribute right now, they could give him the top spot on the depth chart.
1. Andrew Nelson
2a. Chasz Wright
2b. Noah Beh
Andrew Nelson was hobbled by a leg injury during spring practice but was basically a lock to start at right tackle anyway. Wright will again serve as a second-stringer and can even move inside if necessary. Incoming freshman Noah Beh looks to be more of an emergency option right now and will likely redshirt.
