A total of 39 former Penn State football players are on the training camp rosters of 25 NFL teams.

The Oakland Raiders and San Diego Chargers feature three former Nittany Lions on their rosters, while 10 more NFL teams have two Penn Staters on their rosters. Third-year starting center/guard Stefen Wisniewski, defensive end Jack Crawford and rookie quarterback Matt McGloin are with the Raiders. Wide receiver Deon Butler signed with San Diego in the off-season and is joined by guard Rich Ohrnberger and guard Johnnie Troutman, who missed the 2012 season with an injury.
