Not as indelible as something carved in stone but still more substantial than a love letter in the sand, the Eagles' training-camp depth chart was released yesterday, revealing few surprises. Among starting positions on offense and defense, there were just two changes from the depth chart the Eagles released before the early-May minicamp, and those were necessitated by injuries. On the latest chart, Charles Crawford is listed as the starting tailback in front of Junior Tautalatasi and rookie Bobby Morse.

The first depth chart of the new football season usually produces a few surprises. But with Penn State in 2016, James Franklin's choices prompted no shockers and little discussion. The Nittany Lions coach released the depth chart Tuesday for Saturday's season opener against Kent State at Beaver Stadium. Of the 22 positions on offense and defense, 17 were manned by either holdovers or players who have started before. Five spots where players either graduated or left for the NFL were filled with first-time starters, including a pair of redshirt freshmen.

STATE COLLEGE - Penn State released its first depth chart of the season yesterday, and in no surprise, Tyler Ferguson and Christian Hackenberg were listed as the co-starters at quarterback. The duo has been competing for the job since the beginning of training camp, and an "OR" was the only thing between the two on the depth chart. Coach Bill O'Brien has repeatedly said the race is neck-and-neck, and he noted he plans on using both signal callers when the Nittany Lions open their season this Saturday against Syracuse at MetLife Field.

CHIP KELLY hasn't released a depth chart; the one you can access on the Eagles' website is from the end of the 2012 season and features starters who are no longer on the team, such as defensive tackle Cullen Jenkins. An inquisitive fan with a smartphone has added a little intrigue, though. "ADDiBona" - Anthony DiBona, an Eagles fan from Brooklyn - posted a lengthy recap on the Bleedinggreennation website of last weekend's Eagles Academy for Men. Buried in there, among his photos of the logo on the carpets and such, were photos of what were labeled unofficial depth charts, and they included current names.

Temple released its first football depth chart heading into Friday's opener at Lincoln Financial Field against Army and the biggest surprise came at wide receiver. This is among the most competitive positions on the team and it wouldn't be surprising if six or more receivers see action in the game. Still, last year's leading returning receiver, redshirt sophomore Ventell Bryant, was listed on the second team. The first-team receivers were redshirt sophomore Marshall Ellick, redshirt junior Keith Kirkwood and redshirt sophomore Brodrick Yancy.

Temple quarterback Clinton Granger has not received any promises, he said. Everything he wants, he said, he has to earn. And now the Washington High product nicknamed "Juice" is in position to earn the Owls' starting job. He entered Friday's first day of spring practice tied atop the quarterback depth chart with fellow senior Chris Coyer. Head coach Matt Rhule plans to have the Owls pass more this season, something that has raised the receivers' morale, Coyer said. Last season, Coyer threw for 946 yards, 8 touchdowns, and 4 interceptions.

The Eagles on Monday released their first depth chart leading up to Friday's preseason game against the Chicago Bears, and it listed Nate Allen as the team's starting safety. Nolan Carroll is listed as the Eagles' top kick returner, with Darren Sproles as punt returner. The base offense is a three-receiver set, with Brad Smith listed over Jordan Matthews in the slot. The depth chart is unofficial, and it is still premature to form any major conclusions about what it will look like when the regular season begins next month.

BETHLEHEM — The Eagles released their first depth chart of training camp Monday, and there were no huge surprises. The biggest ripple might have been that Mat McBriar is listed as the starting punter over incumbent Chas Henry, even though McBriar acknowledged again Monday that he is still working his way back from a nerve problem that affects his plant leg. "I don't know if it's anything too official," said McBriar, 33, a two-time Pro Bowl punter...

Eagles coach Chip Kelly bristled when queried about the depth chart, and quarterback Nick Foles offered a similar reaction when questioned about practice repetitions with the first or second team. It's clear during this week's mandatory minicamp, as it has been throughout the offseason, that the starting lineup remains a mystery even to Kelly at this point. One reason coaches often name starting quarterbacks is to eliminate speculation and ambiguity. Yet during Tuesday's practice, Michael Vick took the first snaps with the first-team offense.
