New, 33 comments

Who is starting in the Eagles first game out of Massachusetts.

Winslow Townson-USA TODAY Sports

Lots of changes to report today, let's take a look.

QB
1. Tyler Murphy (6-2, 213, GS)
2. Darius Wade (6-0, 201, Fr.)

Murphy will get the start again, will be interesting to see how he matches up against his former teammate Jacoby Brissett.

TB
1. Myles Willis (5-9, 203, So.)
2. Tyler Rouse (5-8, 194, So.) or
Marcus Outlow (5-10, 207, Fr) or
Jonathan Hilliman (6-0, 215 Fr.) or
Richard Wilson (5-10, 212 Fr.)

239 yards on the ground against Colorado St., N.C State is 78th in the country in rushing defense and has allowed 150 yards or more against the run four times this year (Old Dominion, Florida State, Clemson and Georgia Southern)

FB
1. Bobby Wolford (6-2, 248, So)
2. Sean Burke (5-11, 234, Jr.)

Same as every other game this season

WR
1. Charlie Callinan (6-4, 220, So.)
2. Jeffrey Jay (6-2, 197, Sr.)
Nat Dixon (6-3, 172, Fr)

WR
1.  Josh Bordner (6-4, 230, GS)
2. Thadd Smith (5-9, 168, Fr.)
or Gabe McClary (6-3, 185, Fr.)

WR
1 Dan Crimmins 6-5 237 Jr. 
2. Drew Barksdale 5-11 195 Fr. or
Shakim Phillips 6-3 206 Gr. or
Sherman Alston 5-6 163 Fr

No new wrinkles here for the wide receivers, Addazio is sticking with his crew as he should. As mentioned ad nauseam, Sherm Alston had no touches against the Rams. Really interested to see how he is integrated in the gameplan this weekend.

Y
1. Michael Giacone (6-5, 262, JR.)
2. Louie Addazio (6-3, 253, So.) or
Joel Rich (6-3, 255, R-Fr)

No changes.

LT
1. Seth Betancourt (6-6, 300, Sr.)
2. Dave Bowen (6-7, 291, Jr.)

LG
1. Bobby Vardaro (6-5, 299, Sr.)
2. Jon Baker (6-3, 281, Fr.)

C
1. Andy Gallik (6-3, 304, Sr.)
2. Frank Taylor (6-6, 304, So.)

RG
1. Aaron Kramer (6-7, 293, GS)
2. Jim Cashman (6-7, 301, Jr.)

RT
1. Ian Silberman (6-5, 294, Gs)
2. Dave Bowen (6-7, 291, Sr.)

Vardaro should be ready to go for Saturday, which is a huge boost for the offensive line because clearly he can be a big difference up front. Baker got the start against Colorado St at LG, and should be ready to go if need be. Harris Williams appears to be at least a few more weeks away from being ready.

Defense

DE
1. Brian Mihalik (6-9, 295, Sr.)
2. Malachi Moore (6-7, 274, Sr.)

DT
1. Nick Lifka (6-2 284 Sr.)
2. Noa Merritt (6-0, 268, Fr.) or
Truman Gutapfel (6-3, 289 So.)

DT
1. Connor Wujciak (6-3, 300, So.)
2. Noa Merritt (6-0, 268, Fr.) or
Truman Gutapfel (6-3, 289 R-Fr.)

DE
1. Kevin Kavalec (6-3, 242, Fr.)
2. Harold Landry (6-3, 257, Fr) or
Seyi Adebayo (6-3 245 Gr)

Mehdi is gone for the season, and it's up to Nick Lifka to step up and fill the hole. After Lifka it's a whole lot of freshmen.

SLB
1. Josh Keyes (6-2, 223, Sr.)
2. Matt Milano (6-1, 220, So.) or
Christian Lezzer (6-0, 210, Fr.)

MLB

1. Steven Daniels (6-0, 249, Jr.) or Sean Duggan
Connor Strachan (6-2 231 Fr.)

WLB
1. Mike Strizak (6-2, 229, So)
2. Ty Schwab (6-1 212 Fr.)

Hoping for a much better game out of this crew then what we saw against Colorado State. No changes of note.

LC

1. Manny Asprilla (5-11, 177, Sr.)
2. Isaac Yiadom (6-1 170 Fr.)

SS
1. Dominique Williams (6-0, 212, Sr.)
2. Sean Sylvia (6-0, 208, Sr.)

FS
1. Justin Simmons (6-3, 188, Jr.)
2.  Ty Meer Brown (6-0, 201, GS) or
Kevin Bletzer (6-2 198 Fr)

RC
1. John Johnson  (6-0, 194, So)
2. Kamrin Moore (5-11 186 Fr.)

Adios Bryce Jones, hello John Johnson. 

Specialists

K
1. Mike Knoll (6-0, 214, Fr.)
2. Joey Launceford (5-10 190 Sr)
3.. Alex Howell (6-5, 206, Jr.)

P
1. Alex Howell (6-5, 206, Jr.)
2. Mike Knoll (6-0, 214, Fr.)

S
1. Leonard Skubal (5-10, 201, Jr.)
2. Mike Fischer (6-0, 217, Jr.)
3. Austin Stevens (6-3, 256 Fr.)

PR
1. Sherm Allston (5-6, 163, Fr.)
2. Thaddius Smith (5-9 167, Fr.) or Marcus Outlow

KR
Myles Willis (5-9, 203, So.) or
Sherm Allston (5-6, 163, Fr.)

Bryce Jones is gone so it's up to Allston and company to take over on returns, which I'm fine with.  Mike Knoll is our new kicker, which can't be any worse than what we have seen the past five weeks. Austin Stevens was added as the third string long snapper, which is interesting if you care about that sort of thing.
