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.

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 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.

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - Prized incoming freshman Christian Hackenberg is officially in the Penn State quarterback derby before ever taking a snap. The post-spring depth chart released Thursday listed Hackenberg and junior college transfer Tyler Ferguson, a sophomore, as the top two candidates to take over the starting job left vacated by the graduation of Matt McGloin. Coach Bill O'Brien had given every indication in spring practice that Hackenberg would get a chance to compete for the job when preseason camp opens in August.

The subtle rift that has developed between John Wooten, the Eagles' outspoken player personnel director, and the coaching staff came out of hiding. It did so after another attempt by Wooten to decide the depth chart. Unaware that he has been ruffling many feathers in the Eagles' coaches offices by telling the media who likely will be starting at various positions, Wooten continued to do so yesterday. Coaches have not appreciated reading Wooten comments regarding most free agents brought in or signed by the Eagles with regard to where they will fit in on the depth chart before taking the field.

Jordan Hicks has lined up at middle linebacker this summer with Mychal Kendricks on one side and Nigel Bradham on the other, and there is little question or variation about the starting trio in the Eagles' base defense. The depth at the position has been an issue since the spring, without legitimate competition for the starters and a lack of experience throughout much of the depth chart behind them. That could change if the Eagles add veteran free-agent linebacker Stephen Tulloch.

As his teammates walked off the field at the NovaCare Complex Wednesday morning, McLeod Bethel-Thompson stayed behind, throwing passes to wide receiver David Watford. Bethel-Thompson said he wanted to help out Watford, an undrafted rookie who is learning a new position, and get in some extra reps himself. "I control what I can control. Stay out here and throw late, stay in there and make sure you learn the playbook, that stuff you can control," said Bethel-Thompson, who played college football at Sacramento State.

IT IS the dream of 99.9 percent of the football-playing kids in America to one day play in the NFL. It certainly was Aaron Grymes' dream three years ago, but it didn't quite work out. Grymes, an all-conference cornerback at the University of Idaho, went unclaimed in the 2013 draft. No one signed him after the draft, either. The Green Bay Packers invited him to their rookie minicamp on a tryout basis, but he didn't stick. With his wife Hannah three months pregnant, Grymes needed a job. His position coach at Idaho, Torey Hunter, had played in the Canadian Football League and asked him if he might be interested in going up there.

The Eagles begin their third week of organized team activities on Tuesday. Here are three story lines and three players to watch: Final week of voluntary workouts: When coach Doug Pederson discussed the absences of Fletcher Cox and Darren Sproles, he emphasized that the offseason program has only been voluntary to this point. The four OTAs this week mark the final voluntary portion of the spring. The Eagles will host a mandatory minicamp next week and then take a six-week break before training camp.

Kenjon Barner topped the Eagles' running back depth chart on Tuesday, and Chip Kelly was nowhere in sight. With Ryan Mathews ill and Darren Sproles training in California, Barner became the Eagles' top running back at the beginning of the second week of organized team activities. The 27-year-old has impressed in an Eagles uniform before - he returned two punts for touchdowns last preseason, and he averaged 4.4 yards per carry during the second half of the season. But his next act could be shedding any suggestion that his spot on the roster was solely the creation of the coach he starred for in college.

Chase Daniel is, quite literally, the quarterback in the middle of Sam Bradford and Carson Wentz, at least in the locker room. He's sandwiched in between the current starter and the presumptive future starter on the depth chart. His locker stall splits the two, with Bradford to his left and Wentz to his right. Daniel is the forgotten figure in the Eagles' quarterback drama, and yet, his role may be just as essential over the next two years. The veteran is to be Bradford's backup, Wentz's teacher, and quite possibly, the stopgap starter if one of several variables were to happen.

For the next week, the Eagles can revel in the excitement of moving up to the No. 2 pick to draft a potential franchise quarterback. But once presumptive selection Carson Wentz arrives in Philadelphia, it will be up to coach Doug Pederson to figure out how the crowded depth chart will work. The Eagles made clear that Sam Bradford is still their starting quarterback. However, considering the assets the team surrendered to draft Wentz, the team must also make sure that their investment eventually bears fruit.

Temple center Brendan McGowan described his time as an Owls backup as sitting in the shadows, but for the last month, he has been in the sun. Temple's depth chart suggested McGowan would take over as starter next season. A knee injury to Kyle Friend moved up the timetable. For newly initiated Owls fans, Friend had to be considered Temple's top returning offensive player. He wasn't just a captain as a junior but as a sophomore, too. "Before the year I would have said we'll be a really good offensive line as long as Kyle plays,"Owls coach Matt Rhule said this week.

When Villanova coach Andy Talley looked at his depth chart last season, it didn't take him long to realize what was best for running back Javon White. Talley had guys like Kevin Monangai - now on the Eagles' practice squad - Gary Underwood and Austin Medley firmly ahead of the Souderton High School product. After extensive conversations with White, the two sides agreed that the best thing for him was to redshirt in 2014 and have him available for the next two seasons. Last week in a 14-7 victory at Fordham, the wisdom behind the decision became apparent.

BY THE TIME Hershey Walton was in middle school, a lot of folks thought he had what it took to become a pretty good football player. But there weren't many who felt they could say the same about him as a student. Maybe not even him. "I kind of struggled in school," recalled Walton, now a fifth-year senior defensive lineman at Temple. "The first time I played football, in seventh grade, I was actually ineligible. I had to get my grades up. I was a kid. I didn't know any better. Everybody matures at different times.
