35 Players Give Penn State Fifth-Most NFL Representation

With 35 former Penn State football stars currently on NFL rosters, the Nittany Lions have the fifth-most representation in the league to kick off the season.

Only Alabama, Ohio State, LSU, and Florida have more alumni in the NFL on the league’s Week 1 rosters.

Earlier this week, 16 former Penn State football stars were cut from their respective teams as squads trimmed their rosters down to 53 players each. However, many later found new homes with different teams and practice squads.

Several notable rookies wound up in good positioning on their teams’ depth charts. Currently, Yetur Gross-Matos is poised to start at defensive end for the Carolina Panthers, while KJ Hamler will be a backup receiver with the Denver Broncos. Hamler was previously sidelined with a hamstring injury but will start the season on Denver’s active roster.

Several Nittany Lions, including Miles Sanders, Mike Gesicki, and Saquon Barkley, will return to the Eagles, Giants, and Dolphins, respectively, with high expectations. Barkley will serve as one of New York’s captains for the second straight year.
