Penn State continues to receive oral commitments from defensive linemen for the Class of 2016, having gotten a pledge from defensive end Daniel Joseph of Lake Forest (Ill.) Academy. The 6-foot-3, 240-pound Joseph, who announced his commitment Tuesday, is rated at four stars by 247Sports.com and three stars by Scout.com. Although he received nearly 20 scholarship offers, he went with Penn State rather quickly after making an unofficial visit June 20. "He loved the atmosphere, the guys on the team, the education part of it and what Penn State could do for him after football," Lake Forest coach Robin Bowkett told the Chicago Tribune.

Clifton Geathers stands out for obvious reasons, but he may have a leg up on his competition because of Chip Kelly's professed preference for rangy players. The 6-foot-8, 340-pound defensive lineman, acquired from the Indianapolis Colts this offseason in exchange for fullback Stanley Havili, has gotten a lot of action with the first-team defense during spring practices. "Clifton's done some pretty good things since we've had him here," Kelly said Wednesday. "I think he's got extremely long arms.

THERE ARE 53 players on an NFL regular-season roster, but only 46 can be activated on game day. Last season, 23 Eagles players were inactive for at least one game, many because of injury. Only one player spent the entire season as a game-day inactive. That was rookie defensive end Taylor Hart. He didn't play a snap. Didn't make a tackle. Didn't even get a chance to run out of the tunnel at the Linc to the roar of the crowd. "It was tough," acknowledged Hart, a 2014 fifth-round pick from Oregon.

Jefferson, tight end, Rutgers; Robert McCabe, linebacker, Georgetown (Malvern Prep)

When he was growing up in Michigan, Anthony Zettel could have chosen any sport he wanted to eventually excel in as a college athlete. And we do mean athlete . He could have played golf. His routine tee shot today carries more than 300 yards, and he has hit a few that have topped out at 375. Track and field? Zettel set a Michigan high school record in the shot put during his days at Ogemaw Heights High with a toss of 61 feet, 8 inches, and also stood out in the javelin.

How do you stop Adrian Peterson and Ray Rice? That's not a new NFL question, but it has taken on a significantly different meaning in the last couple of weeks. It is one embattled commissioner Roger Goodell believes he is in the process of addressing, but time will tell if that's the case. To be fair, it's not just them. That disgraced duo has grabbed the majority of the unwanted headlines, but a growing list of other NFL players - Carolina's Greg Hardy, Arizona's Jonathan Dwyer, and San Francisco's Ray McDonald - also have been charged with behaving badly.

Brandon Bair has a side business selling used cars. The Eagles defensive linemen started by finding a 1974 Cadillac Eldorado and identifying an opportunity where others saw junk. He made $700. So Bair could probably relate to the Eagles taking a 29-year-old defensive lineman who has never played in a regular-season game and was discarded by two teams, and turning him into a reserve lineman after one year on the practice squad. The 53-man roster will not be set until Saturday, and the Eagles will have difficult decisions to make on the defensive line.

HAYDEN MAHONEY had a real-life crib sheet to help him through the sometimes-harrowing process of college-football recruiting. So, when Malvern Prep's 6-5, 270-pound junior lineman committed to the University of Miami on Saturday, he simply followed some family advice. "My brother went through this process and gave me advice on how you have to really connect with your position coach and you have to buy into what they're doing. And I really did," Hayden said via phone from a Florida airport yesterday afternoon just before his flight back to the family's Malvern home.

Eric Wiafe will have a better idea than most recruits of what it's like to face Division I competition as he begins his football career at Rutgers. That is because the 2013 Egg Harbor Township graduate spent the fall attending Milford Academy in New Berlin, N.Y. The prep school has been an assembly line for Division I recruits, and Bill Chaplick has coached such players as Eagles running back LeSean McCoy, Denver Broncos and former Temple defensive lineman Terrance Knighton, and former Winslow Township running back Shonn Greene, now a member of the Tennessee Titans.
