WR DEREK MOYE JUNIOR
A rare blend of size (6' 5", 198 pounds) and speed, the former Pennsylvania high school sprinting champ emerged as a dangerous playmaker last year. He led the team in catches (48) and yards (785) and trailed only fellow receiver Graham Zug in TD receptions, with six.
TB EVAN ROYSTER SENIOR
A natural runner between the tackles, Penn State's workhorse flirted with going pro before returning for a final season. His 205 carries for 1,169 yards and six touchdowns helped carry the offense last season.
RG STEFEN WISNIEWSKI SENIOR
In addition to opposing tackles, the 6' 3" 297-pounder has his family's proud Lions tradition to contend with. His father, Leo, was a standout D-lineman (1979-81); his uncle Steve ('85-88) was a two-time All-America guard.
HERO DREW ASTORINO JUNIOR
The top tackler among Penn State's returning players, with 62 last season, serves as a hybrid linebacker-safety. The 5' 10" 194-pounder will deliver even more punishing hits after last January's surgery to repair a torn labrum in his left shoulder.
