North Carolina State OT Tyson Chandler was the "big winner" of the school's pro day, according to TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline.

Chandler measured in at a, um, svelte 6-foot-7 1/4, 330 pounds, having shed 28 pounds since the season. He boasts an NBA-like 88-inch wingspan, befitting of his Dallas Maverick namesake. Chandler hoisted 31 reps on the bench and added a 28-inch vertical jump, a 9-4 broad jump and a 40 time of 5.25 seconds. "He looked incredibly athletic during position drills for such a large lineman," wrote Pauline. "In fact, most said Chandler was the best offensive lineman in attendance and not Rob Crisp. Chandler was smooth and easily flipped his hips in drills. Scouts commended Chandler on his conditioning, and long-time Oakland Raiders scout and former lineman Mickey Marvin heaped praise on him." The analyst reported Chandler will work out for the New York Jets in a few weeks.

North Carolina State senior DT Thomas Teal will play in Saturday's Medal of Honor Bowl.

Teal's consistency vacillates, and he struggled in a few high-profile matchups, such as October's loss to Florida State, but there are aspects of his game that intrigue. Teal is a natural DT -- with the power to line up over center and control two gaps -- but has the versatility to kick outside in three-lineman sets. He ties up blockers and is good in run support, but may never contribute as a pass rusher. Teal "could draw mid-to-late round consideration," CBS Sports' Derek Stephens wrote over the summer.

North Carolina State senior K Niklas Sade accepted an invitation to the East-West Shrine Game.

Sade this season broke the school’s all-time leading scorer that had stood since 1978. A ridiculously productive career ends with 332 points, 167 PATs and 55 field goals. Sade is very accurate, but will have to prove to scouts that he has the leg to kick 50-plus yard field goals to get drafted.

NC State redshirt junior QB Jacoby Brissett completed 15 of 26 attempts for 262 yards and one touchdown in the school's 34-27 win over UCF.

Brissett added another 31 rushing yards, and one 11 yard run showcased the quarterback's ability to manage the pocket and pick up yards with his feet. With that said, Brissett can definitely improve in terms of timing his targets to make the most of windows and placement to lead receivers to yards after the catch. Brissett does have another offseason before testing NFL waters after next season.

NC State redshirt junior Jacoby Brissett completed 8-of-19 passes for 83 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's win over Wake Forest.

It feels like a long, long time ago that ESPN's Todd McShay was saying that Brissett had "a lot of Ben Roethlisberger" in his pocket presence and poise. McShay wrote that on September 30th. Brissett started out the season like gangbusters, but he's really fallen off since pushing Florida State to the brink. Brissett's 6-foot-4, 231 pounds and can throw the rock, but we haven't liked the progression we've seen in his game since the great start.

NC State redshirt junior Jacoby Brissett completed 18-of-35 passes for 213 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions in Saturday's loss to Georgia Tech.

Coming into the game, Brissett had only thrown three interceptions. Against Georgia Tech, he threw a pick-six and had a fumble that was returned for a touchdown. He was off-target early and often in the contest. Brissett did lead the team in rushing with 77 yards on the ground, but other than that, it was a game to forget. He had a string of great games to start the season--highlighted by a 359-yard, 3 TD/0 INT effort against Florida State--but he hasn't impressed since late September.

NC State redshirt junior Jacoby Brissett completed 18-of-32 attempts for 223 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in Saturday's loss to Louisville.

It was good to see the former Florida Gator get back on track. Brissett posted a 13/1 TD/INT ratio during the Wolfpack's 4-1 start, but he'd gone 18-for-48 for one touchdown and one interception in the team's last two losses. ESPN's Todd McShay wrote last month that Brissett "has a lot of Ben Roethlisberger to his game in terms of his poise, pocket presence and how difficult he is for defenders to bring down."

NBC's College Football Talk reports that North Carolina State HC Dave Doeren notes that freshman WR Bo Hines (ankle) "will be good to go" this Saturday against Louisville.

The 6-foot-1, 190-pound Hines suffered a right ankle injury during last Saturday’s loss to Boston College. The Wolfpack prospect wore a protective boot on the sidelines during the second half of the game, however, Hines' ankle was only a mild sprain. The Freshman wideout leads the team in receptions (27) and receiving yards (347).

NC State redshirt junior Jacoby Brissett completed 14-of-30 attempts for 174 yards, a touchdown and an interception in Saturday's loss to Boston College.

Well, at least it was better than his 4-for-18-for-35-yard performance in last week's ugly loss to Clemson. In the first five games of the season, the former Florida Gator posted a 13/1 TD/INT ratio, leading ESPN's Todd McShay to write that Brissett "has a lot of Ben Roethlisberger to his game in terms of his poise, pocket presence and how difficult he is for defenders to bring down." Brissett's struggles the past few weeks have removed his name from the lips of draft analysts.

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline thinks North Carolina State senior DT Thomas Teal's stock is down after he was "dominated" during the Florida State game.

Teal had only one tackle against the Seminoles. "Early in his career Teal looked like a legitimate next level prospect but his game has leveled off the past two seasons and in some ways regressed," Pauline wrote. "Teal flashes ability but need to consistently play at a high level for any chance of making a roster." The second-team preseason All-ACC Phil Steele selection logged 11 tackles for loss and three sacks as a junior. Teal "could draw mid-to-late round consideration if he can continue making plays behind the line of scrimmage," CBS Sports' Derek Stephens wrote over the summer, adding that he believes the prospect possesses the versatility to handle the outside in three-lineman sets, and the power to line up over center and handle two gaps.

NC State redshirt junior Jacoby Brissett completed 4-of-18 attempts for 35 yards in Saturday's ugly loss to Clemson.

The game pumped the breaks on Brissett's draft stock, which had risen in recent weeks. So far, in fact, that ESPN's Todd McShay wrote last week that Brissett "has a lot of Ben Roethlisberger to his game in terms of his poise, pocket presence and how difficult he is for defenders to bring down." Brissett transferred to NC State from Florida last year. He has another year to iron out the kinks in his game.

NC State redshirt junior Jacoby Brissett "has a lot of Ben Roethlisberger to his game in terms of his poise, pocket presence and how difficult he is for defenders to bring down," according to ESPN's Todd McShay.

"He needs to be quicker in getting from one progression to the next, but I think he sees the entire field well and has good vision as a runner," McShay wrote. The analyst reported that 11 NFL teams scouted Saturday's game against Florida State. Brissett starred in a losing effort, going 32-for-48 for 359 yards and three touchdowns. "He's just a junior and is still a work in progress, but I think he has the physical tools to one day develop into an NFL QB," McShay wrote. "His TD pass in the first half, in which he nearly had his helmet ripped off and then warded off another sack attempt along the right sideline, was one of the more impressive individual efforts I've seen in a long time."

NC State redshirt junior Jacoby Brissett completed 28 of 40 attempts for 291 yards, three touchdowns and one interception in the school's 24-23 win over Georgia Southern.

He added 28 rushing yards. Brissett transferred to NC State from Florida last year, and this was his first start after sitting out a season. His lone interception occurred on a third down after retreating against pressure and overthrowing a receiver along the sideline. Brissett did show a lot of touch on two throws later in the game, however.

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline believes NC State redshirt senior T Rob Crisp has an NFL future if he can prove his health.

At 6-foot-7, 300 pounds with athleticism, Crisp possesses every tool the NFL looks for in a tackle -- except for a clean bill of health. "In many ways offensive tackle Rob Crisp has had his future possibilities halted by injury," Pauline wrote. "Prior to the start of the 2013 campaign I rated the left tackle as a potential third/fourth round pick before his season was ended by a concussion and that was after missing most of the 2012 campaign with back issues. Crisp has the talent to play at the next level but durability is a big question mark." Crisp missed five games in 2012 due to a lower back injury, and was knocked out for the year with a concussion in the second game of last season.

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline "generously stamped" North Carolina State redshirt junior cornerback Justin Burris with a fourth-round grade.

"I generously stamped cornerback Justin Burris with a fourth round grade based on the flashes he showed and the future possibilities I saw," Pauline wrote. "He plays with toughness and solid ball skills." The Wolfpack's starting right corner ranked sixth on the team in tackles last year. At 6-foot-1, 211 pounds, Burris has prototypical NFL size, making him easy to project to the next level.
