NFL Media reports that North Carolina State QB Jacoby Brissett "might be picking up some steam with NFL general managers as they begin to make their way to the tape rooms now that the season is over."
Brissett (6-foot-4, 235) is efficient, comfortable in the pocket, can salvage a play and has a big arm. "After studying tape of him, we like Brissett's potential at the NFL level and we were pleasantly surprised to hear the same thing from three NFL decision-makers we spoke with on Wednesday," wrote Daniel Jeremiah and Lance Zierlein. "Brissett has good size. He's able to fend off would-be sackers and fight to keep plays alive through sheer strength and determination. Brissett has the NFL frame and arm that teams should like, and his ability to carry an offense despite a constant barrage of pressure should help him in the eyes of NFL general managers." We already know Brissett impresses Baylor HC Art Briles. Brissett earned honorable mention All-ACC honors last year with 2,662 passing yards and a 20/6 TD/INT rate. It's worth noting that his supporting cast -- particularly his offensive line -- was bad over the past few years. Jan 29 - 12:43 PM

Baylor HC Art Briles said he was impressed with North Carolina State QB Jacoby Brissett when watching him on tape while preparing for his bowl game with UNC.

Briles said Brissett "flashed" on tape and praised Brissett again on the sidelines of a Senior Bowl session while watching Brissett throw a rocket on a slant for a touchdown in a goal-line scenario. We see the 6-foot-4, 231-pounder as a long-time NFL backup, which is valuable in and of itself. When he's at his best, he looks like a possible future Pro-Bowler. When he's at his worst, he becomes tentative and turns into a sort of homeless man's Brett Hundley. His line was horrific over the past few years. We hope Brissett can break the habits all collegiate QBs coming off a few years with horrible lines have to break.

NC State senior QB Jacoby Brissett completed 12-of-28 passes for 214 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions while rushing for 67 yards and an additional score on 26 carries in Wednesday's 51-28 loss to Mississippi State in the Belk Bowl.

Brissett's nightmare afternoon began early, as he was picked off by Mississippi State’s Gerri Green on the very first snap of the game. His next interception came about 10 minutes later. The Bulldogs led 21-0 with 12:17 left in the second quarter and never sweated the outcome. We're willing to forgive the poor afternoon for Brissett, who had to prop up a mediocre supporting cast throughout the season. Rotoworld's Josh Norris believes Brissett will be a strong, long-time No. 2 NFL QB if nothing else. The 6-foot-4, 231-pounder is efficient, comfortable in the pocket and can salvage a play when his blocking breaks down. Brissett will now head to the Senior Bowl.

NC State senior QB Jacoby Brissett accepted an invitation to the Senior Bowl.

Brissett previously pledged to the East-West Shrine Game, but has understandably accepted his seat upgrade to the Senior Bowl. Rotoworld's Josh Norris is bullish on Brissett's NFL future, believing he'll be a long-time No. 2 if nothing else. The 6-foot-4, 231-pounder is athletic, efficient, comfortable in the pocket and can salvage a play when his blocking breaks down.

NC State senior QB Jacoby Brissett has accepted an invitation to play in the East West Shrine Game.

If Brissett sticks to this commitment rather than jumping up to the Senior Bowl, this is an outstanding get for the Shrine Game. We have a feeling Brissett will stick around in the league for a long time, even if only as a No. 2 option on a roster. He displays comfort in the pocket and success inside and outside of structure.

NC State senior QB Jacoby Brissett completed 17-of-37 passes for 206 yards, two touchdowns and an interception while rushing for 128 yards and two additional scores on 20 carries in Saturday's 45-34 loss to North Carolina.

Brissett did everything in his power to keep the Wolpack in the game, notching a passing touchdown and rushing touchdown in each half of Saturday's loss. Alas, it just wouldn't be enough. The 6-foot-4, 231-pound senior's thrown at least one touchdown pass in every one of NC State's 12 games. For the season, he's racked up 2,448 passing yards with a shiny 19/4 TD/INT ratio. Plus, five rushing touchdowns.

NC State senior QB Jacoby Brissett completed 21 of 33 attempts for 235 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in the school's 42-29 win over Syracuse.

Brissett's two touchdowns were short throws to the right side, one a jump ball five yard lob, the other a seven yard route. The interception was a poor decision after not seeing underneath coverage. Overall, Brissett was efficient and gave his targets a chance to make plays in one on one coverage. Those are the traits we like to see, especially compared to other quarterbacks in this class.

NC State redshirt senior QB Jacoby Brissett completed 27 of 47 attempts for 209 yards and a touchdown in the school's 34-17 loss to FSU.

Brissett added another 25 rushing yards and a score, which led the team. That tells you almost everything you need to know about this game. Brissett was consistently hit in the pocket while holding the ball or just after targeting an outlet receiver. Who knows if it was indecision or if the Wolfpack receivers could not create separation.

NC State redshirt senior QB Jacoby Brissett is one of three quarterbacks in the country to have thrown two or fewer interceptions in 250 or more pass attempts.

Over the course of nine contests, Brissett's completing 64% of his passes for 1,798 yards with a 14/2 TD/INT ratio. The 6-foot-4, 231-pound redshirt senior's best game this season came in a Halloween loss to Clemson. In that one, Brissett threw three touchdown passes and rushed for an additional score as NC State hung tough with the No. 1 team in the country before ultimately falling 56-41. While he's thrown at least one touchdown pass in every game this season, he's been limited to a singular one in five of those nine games and makes for a relatively low-upside DFS option.

FSU HC Jimbo Fisher notes that NC State redshirt senior QB Jacoby Brissett is "strong in the pocket and can make all the throws."

"I think, one, he's strong in the pocket and can make all the throws," Fisher told the Orlando Sentinel. "Two, he has mobility and can escape. Three, on top of that, he's so strong, getting him on the ground. And he can throw in tight areas with people hanging on him." Fisher actively recruited the North Carolina State prospect out of Palm Beach Gardens Dwyer High, but ended up taking Jake Coker(who transferred to Alabama) instead. Our own Josh Norris is a long-time Brissett fan and ranks him as the No. 2 QB in the class.

NC State redshirt senior QB Jacoby Brissett completed 14 of 27 attempts for 212 yards, one touchdown and one interception in the school's 24-8 win over Boston College.

Brissett's interception was a 4th down heave while in the grasp of defenders. The quarterback's long 83 yard touchdown toss was aided by great blocking and an open receiver, but Brissett put the 55 yard air throw on a rope. We still like Brissett's ability to work an offense much more than other "bigger" names.

North Carolina State redshirt senior QB Jacoby Brissett "is probably better suited as a back-up in the NFL rather than a starter," CBS Sports' Dane Brugler observes.

"Brissett can make all the NFL throws, but too often he's slow to read, which leads to late passes, and his confidence as a downfield passer seems to run hot-and-cold," Brugler wrote. However, Brugler is still impressed with his skill-set and believes Brissett is a top-five senior quarterback prospect heading into the 2016 draft. On this side of the tracks, our own Josh Norris ranks him as the No. 2 QB in the class.

Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney called NC State senior QB Jacoby Brissett's performance against the school "amazing."

In that game, Brissett went 24-for-41 for 254 yards and three touchdowns and a rushing score in the 56-41 loss. Brissett really was great, hitting receivers at multiple levels of the field while displaying control in the pocket. We rank his NFL projection much higher than many other sites.

An East Coast area scout prefers North Carolina State redshirt senior QB Jacoby Brissett to Penn State's Christian Hackenberg and "believes Brissett will end up grading out higher."

One interesting aspect of this dispatch: It came before Brissett's star turn against Clemson on Saturday. In his Halloween coming out party, Brissett went 24-for-41 for 254 yards and three touchdowns and added a rushing score. Brissett's performance against the Tigers "impressed NFL scouts," per TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline, who added that Brissett "has a big league arm and easily drives the ball downfield with speed yet at the same time displayed feather like touch when necessary." Rotoworld's Josh Norris is a long-time Brissett fan and ranks him as the No. 2 QB in the class.

North Carolina State redshirt senior QB Jacoby Brissett's "performance against the Tigers impressed NFL scouts," according to TFY Draft Insider Tony Pauline.

"Brissett’s command of the offense was impressive as were the array of passes he delivered. He has a big league arm and easily drives the ball downfield with speed yet at the same time displayed feather like touch when necessary," Pauline wrote. The North Carolina State prospect had a solid outing versus Clemson, completing 24 of 41 passes for 254 yards, three touchdowns and a rushing score. Pauline notes that the 6-foot-4, 231-pound Brissett just "needs to be more consistent with his mechanics which will improve his accuracy."
