NC State redshirt senior WR Jumichael Ramos (knee) was limited this spring.

The bigger news is that Ramos is expected to be a full-go by fall camp. The 6-foot-2, 200-pound wideout redshirted last season after suffering a major knee injury in the summer. Ramos caught 34 passes for 457 yards and three touchdowns back in 2015.

Former Tennessee junior S Stephen Griffin transferred to NC State.

A consensus 3-star safety prospect out of high school, Griffin appeared in 18 games but started only one over two seasons in Knoxville. Griffin will sit out the 2017 campaign and be eligible for the Wolfpack in 2018-19.

Rivals notes that NC State four-star 2018 verbal QB commit Devin Leary "lived up to [the rankings] jump" at the Rivals100 Five-Star Challenge.

Rivals had just assigned Leary four-star status prior to the Five-Star Challenge in Indianapolis over the weekend. According to the outlet, "The NC State commit has a cannon of an arm but needs work on his long ball a bit and size is still a slight issue. But he performed well and we like where we have him." The 6-foot-2, 185-pounder had previously been named the quarterbacking MVP at the Rivals 3 Stripe Camp in New Jersey. The Sicklerville, New Jersey, native ranks as Rivals' No. 10 pro-style quarterback in the 2018 class and will be heading out to The Opening later this month after a strong performance at the Elite Eleven Finals.

North Carolina State redshirt freshman WR C.J. Riley (knee) was limited in spring practices.

Riley (6'4, 204) still wasn't quite over the season-ending knee injury he suffered last summer. The Wolfpack are hoping he'll be ready for contact drills when fall camp opens up later this summer.

NC State four-star 2018 verbal QB commit Devin Leary received an invitation to The Opening.

Leary's work at the Elite 11 Finals drew him a "Top Gunslinger" designation from 247Sports' Luke Stampling, who wrote that the 6-foot-2, 185-pounder "has garnered the reputation of being a bit of a ‘grip and rip’ quarterback." The analyst adds that Leary is "decisive and looks for the big play instead of constantly settling for the easy check downs." Earlier this offseason, he earned the positional MVP at the Rivals 3 Stripe Camp in New Jersey. He has showcased not only a big arm and a tendency to go for the home run pass, but also the ability to put finer touch on throws when needed.

ESPN's David M. Hale believes that NC State junior DE Darian Roseboro could notch double-digit sacks this coming season.

Hale notes that because of the overwhelming presence of fellow defensive end Bradley Chubb -- a potential first-rounder next spring -- Roseboro could become the statistical beneficiary. Wrote the analyst, "Double-digit sack totals are within reach, and it's possible that, given the double teams Chubb will command on one side of the line, Roseboro could end up with numbers good enough to lead the league." Last season, the 6-foot-4, 287-pounder registered 25 tackles (11 for loss) and seven sacks across 12 games played.

Stanford four-star 2018 verbal QB commit Devin Leary was named the position MVP at the Rivals 3 Stripe Camp in New Jersey.

Rivals' Woody Wommack passes along that Leary "turned heads" with his performance in New Jersey, adding that the 6-foot-2, 185-pounder was "praised for his arm strength and touch, and his showing was praised by other prospects at the event as well." Leary ranks as the outlet's No. 10 pro-style quarterback recruit in the 2018 cycle.

With Matt Dayes having graduated, Bleacher Report's David Kenyon believes there's an opportunity for North Carolina State freshman RB Erin Collins to play early.

Dayes had 249 carries last year, so there's certainly backfield work available. The three-star Collins, a tailback from Tampa (FL), "is a smooth athlete that shows nice burst and vision when operating between the tackles," Scout noted in a scouting report. "Collins can continue to work on keeping his pad level down, but possesses nimble feet and can make cuts at full speed. He has a reputation for stretching the field and being that home-run hitter in the offensive backfield."

North Carolina State junior RB/WR Nyheim Hines ran the 100-meter dash in 10.49s in April at the Virginia Challenge meet.

He also clocked a 6.71s 60-meter dash at the ACC Indoor Championships in February. Hines, one of the fastest players in college football, averaged 24.4 yards per kickoff return last year. He ran one back 100 yards for a touchdown in the Independence Bowl against Vanderbilt. Hines was primarily used as a receiver his first two years -- he caught 43 passes for 525 yards last season -- but shifted to RB this spring as the Wolfpack attempts to replace Matt Dayes.

ESPN's David M. Hale writes that junior RB Nyheim Hines "might be an intriguing option to replace some of (Matt) Dayes’ skill set."

"The junior worked primarily as a receiver his first two years," Hale writes, "but he’s shifty and quick, and, as (HC Dave) Doeren said, is a much better weapon with the ball in his hands." Hines shifted to running back this spring, with Doeren noting that "[i]t allows us to feed him the ball differently, and we can get him in and out of the backfield and match up against some linebackers that don’t cover well in space." He caught 43 passes for 525 yards last season.

NFL Media's Chad Reuter compares NC State senior edge rusher Bradley Chubb to former Kansas State DE Jordan Willis.

"He's thick and relentless," Reuter wrote. Chubb logged 22 TFL and 10.5 sacks during a monster 2016 campaign, after which he decided to return to campus for one more spin of collegiate ball. Rotoworld's Thor Nystrom slotted him into the late first-round in his recent 2018 mock draft.

Browns selected North Carolina State RB Matt Dayes with the No. 252 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

Dayes (5’9/205) spent the better part of two years as NC State's starting running back, graduating with a 550/2,856/34 (5.19 YPC) rushing line and 98 career catches. Dayes rebounded from a year-ending turf toe injury as a junior for his best campaign as senior, rushing for 100-plus yards in 8-of-13 games and earning second-team All-ACC. Dayes’ tape revealed an ordinary runner lacking flash in any area, but he is a tough, smart back who held his own in the passing game. A jack of many trades but master of none, Dayes could carve out an NFL career as a Chester Taylor-type back.

Vikings selected NC State CB Jack Tocho with the No. 245 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

A team captain in 2016, Tocho bounced back from missed time in 2015 and produced a solid final season. Thanks to his height Tocho projects best as a press corner, and we know Mike Zimmer loves those. Tocho tested in the 55th percentile in terms of athleticism.

Packers selected North Carolina State SS Josh Jones with the No. 61 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

Jones (6’1/220) started all three seasons at N.C. State before turning pro, manning strong safety early on before flipping to free safety as a 2016 junior. He logged seven career tackles for loss, eight interceptions, and two forced fumbles, and led the Wolfpack in tackles (109) last year while allowing zero touchdown passes in coverage. PFF College charted him with 13 missed tackles, however. Jones’ stock skyrocketed at the Combine, blazing 4.41 with a 37 ½-inch vertical, absurd 11-foot broad jump, and 20 reps on the bench. An inconsistent tackler with mouth-watering athletic traits, Jones has boom-bust characteristics as a free-strong safety tweener.

One scout told the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel that NC State RB Matthew Dayes is "more of a specialty guy."

"He’s a one-cut speed guy. He tries to run hard but he doesn’t have any (expletive) behind him. He does have some receiving skills," said the scout. Another evaluator told the Journal-Sentinel that the 5-foot-9, 205-pound Dayes "maximizes his talent but he’s not a very talented guy." The Day 3 hopeful earned second-team All-ACC designation this past season after rushing for 1,166 yards and 10 touchdowns.
