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.

Nyeem Wartman-White can hardly remember the last time he played in Beaver Stadium. It was Nov. 29, 2014. The Penn State linebacker knows he played on the strong side, in a spot he had never played before. He knows he played well. But the rest of that 34-10 loss to Michigan State is a blur. "Wow, it is a long time ago," Wartman-White said after practice Wednesday. "Now when I go out there for my first game [of the season], it might be a little emotional. " When the Philadelphia native returns to the field for the Lions' opener against Kent State on Saturday, he will bring with him lessons he learned from a season on the sidelines.

Not having the opportunity to play for most of last season proved to be the perfect motivator for Temple redshirt junior wide receiver Keith Kirkwood. Kirkwood separated the AC joint in his shoulder during the second game of the season a year ago against Cincinnati and received a medical redshirt. When Temple's first depth chart was released on Monday, Kirkwood was listed as one of the three starting receivers. Temple opens Friday at Lincoln Financial Field against Army. "I came a long way," Kirkwood said after Tuesday's practice.

HOWIE ROSEMAN assured reporters several times that his eyes were "wide-open" Tuesday when he traded for the untapped, perplexing talent of Dorial Green-Beckham. Roseman's eyes must have been similarly agape last Thursday night, when the Eagles' wide receivers caught all of 52 yards' worth of passes in the preseason opener, no catch accounting for more than 10 yards. Green-Beckham, questionable focus and consistency aside, averaged 17.2 yards per catch in 2015 as a Tennessee Titans rookie, 32 catches for 549 yards.

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.
