2013 NFL Draft Prospects: N.C. State

These are the school's prospects for the 2013 NFL Draft by status * - denotes 2014 prospect ** - denotes 2015 prospect.

This page was last updated Feb. 16, 2013. Follow me @walterfootball for updates.

  1. Mike Glennon, QB, N.C. State
    Height: 6-6. Weight: 220. Arm: 32 3/8. Hand: 9 3/8.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.61.
    Projected Round (2013): 1-3.

    2/16/13: Glennon completed 58.5 percent of his passes in 2012 for 4,031 yards, 31 touchdowns and 17 interceptions. He played better than his numbers indicate. Glennon has a big arm and pocket presence, but needs to make major improvements in his accuracy and decision-making. His accuracy would get better if he improved his feet.

    Glennon generally helped himself at the Senior Bowl by showing off his size and powerful arm. However, he is clearly a work in progress and needs a lot of development. Glennon is very inconsistent.

    8/16/12: Glennon took over the reins from Russell Wilson and had a productive 2011 season. Glennon completed 62 percent of his passes for 3,054 yards with 31 touchdowns and 12 interceptions in his first season as a starter. He destroyed the weak teams, but had some struggles against the better teams he faced.

    If Glennon improves as a senior and plays well against good defenses, his stock could really rise. He already has his bachelor's and is taking graduate courses.

  2. David Amerson*, CB, N.C. State
    Height: 6-3. Weight: 194.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.46.
    Projected Round (2013): 2-3.

    1/31/13: Amerson probably should've returned to school following a disappointing junior season, but he entered the 2013 NFL Draft instead. The real problem for Amerson in 2012 was that he often caught gambling with his coverage and, consequently, gave up a number of scores. Amerson was very vulnerable to double moves. His stock has fallen dramatically since last year. He needs a big performance at the NFL Scouting Combine.

    Amerson had a rough first week of the season as he was beaten for a 41-yard touchdown and a 72-yard touchdown by Tennessee's dangerous passing attack. The junior recovered from those two early mistakes and played better for the rest of the game.

    Amerson performed awfully versus Miami as he was beaten for two touchdowns in man coverage. Amerson had snagged interceptions in three straight games prior to that against the Citadel, South Alabama and Connecticut. He totaled 61 tackles, five interceptions and 12 passes broken up in 2012.

    9/1/12: Amerson has a special skill set with size, speed and ball skills. He was simply phenomenal in 2011. Amerson totaled 13 interceptions to lead the nation. That set both school and ACC records since it was the second highest total in FBS history. He also had 59 tackles with five passes broken up. The All-American started nine games as a true freshman in 2010 and had zero interceptions with 57 tackles and a forced fumble.

    When the ball is in the air, Amerson is extremely aggressive. He looks like a natural wide receiver with his hands and body control. Meanwhile, his innate ball skills are extremely rare.

    Amerson played some safety in high school and should be able to play the position in the NFL if a team wants to move him there. That may be considered if he fills out his frame and gets bigger as he ages.

    Teams will avoid throwing in Amerson's direction this season, so it will be hard for him to lead the nation in interceptions again. If he plays well in his best matchups against talented receivers (Tennessee and Clemson) that should help offset the drop in interceptions.

  3. Brandan Bishop, S, N.C. State
    Height: 6-2. Weight: 205.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.60.
    Projected Round (2013): 3-5.

    1/31/13: Bishop was one of the few defensive backs who played well for the Wolfpack against Tennessee to open the season. He had nine tackles and a forced fumble. Bishop added another five tackles, an interception and forced fumble against Connecticut. He totaled 103 tackles, two forced fumbles, seven passes broken up and three interceptions in 2012. Bishop had a quality week at the East-West Shrine.

    9/2/12: It is hard to get out of the shadow of teammate David Amerson, but Bishop has produced the past two years. The junior had an impressive season last year with 89 tackles, five interceptions and a forced fumble. He had four interceptions with 66 tackles as a sophomore.

    Bishop has some natural ball skills with size and tackling ability. He is a sleeper prospect who could surprise and move up the rankings with a strong senior performance.

  4. Earl Wolff, S, N.C. State
    Height: 6-0. Weight: 207.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.68.
    Projected Round (2013): 5-7.

    1/31/13: Wolff was another standout of the East-West Shrine. He made his presence felt throughout the week, including a couple interceptions in one practice. The senior totaled 119 tackles with seven passes broken up, one forced fumble and two interceptions in 2012. He had 105 tackles with three forced fumbles and three interceptions in 2011.

    Wolff has good instincts and run defense, but could stand to improve his pass coverage in the deep part of the field.

, the subject of GM has itserented me for a very long time, though probably more the societal and public policy aspects of it than the pure science. Still, I felt that if I was going to write a credible story with GM as its foundation, I needed a reasonable degree of technical background. So thank goodness for the internet! The fact of the matter is that in this day and age you can make yourself an expert in almost any topic in a few days of intensive research. Needless to say, I spent many hours online scouring for papers, books, journals, etc. on GM technology and absorbed as much of it as possible before launching into the drafting process. As it happened, during the writing of the story, still more technical issues arose that required me to stop for a bit and research those as well. I actually enjoy the research of my writing a great deal, and I include a detailed source list at the end of the book for those itserented enough in the topic to want to follow up on their own.

As a Bucs fan, I did not like this pick at all. I will say, as a Noles fan, Glennon showed great poise bringing N.C. State back for a win over a much more talented team.

Jan. 4: Mel Kiper predicted that Mike Glennon will be the first quarterback chosen in the 2013 NFL Draft. Kiper suggested that Glennon will be a top-15 pick.

Ah, so Glennon will get picked around round 3 then
