College Football Preview: Best of the Rest: NC State Wolfpack

29. NC State Wolfpack
QB Mike Glennon- Junior
FB Taylor Gentry- Senior
TE George Bryan- Senior
OT R.J. Mattes- Junior
CB C.J. Wilson- Junior
With a much weakened ACC the NC State Wolfpack are hoping that they can make a move even with losing star quarterback Russell Wilson. Wilson was the heart and soul of the Wolfpack and was the main reason NC State rose to the Top 25 in 2010. Junior Mike Glennon is hoping to become the next Russell Wilson. They're definitely opposites as Wilson can work out of the pocket while Glennon is a pocket quarterback. He's got decent accuracy and an okay arm. He won't the change the game but he'll get the job done. In the backfield senior Taylor Gentry is a big, powerful fullback and sophomore Dean Haynes will improve. Glennon lost many options but still keeps senior tight end George Bryan who can catch and block well. Jay Smith, T.J. Graham and Steven Howard are his options. All three of them were not starters last season but they are all seniors. The offensive line is headed by junior tackle R.J. Mattes and guards Andrew Wallace and Zach Allen are good. The defense lost comeback linebacker Nate Irving but still returns eight starters. The front seven is depleted now with losses on the defensive line. Senior end Jeff Rieskamp and tackle J.R. Sweezy. The linebacker core returns Audie Cole and Terrell Manning. They are hoping senior Sterling Lucas will star in the middle. The secondary is very good with cornerback C.J. Wilson and others including Justin Byers. The special teams is strong with punter Andy Leffler and kicker Chris Hawthorne.

Heisman Hopeful: Mike Glennon
ACC Rank: 3rd
