Nate Irving gets some national attention

The identity of the two stars of the NC State football team is a secret to no one; however, the level of national attention that Russell Wilson and Nate Irving garner is sometimes disproportionate to their talents.

Today, identified ten seniors they project to breakout and move up NFL draft boards this year.

ILB Nate Irving, North Carolina State, 6-1, 235, 4.68 Irving isn’t so much a breakout candidate as he is a potential Comeback Player of the Year prospect. Irving earned honorable mention All-ACC honors in 2008 with 84 tackles and four interceptions despite missing nearly a third of the season due to a recurring ankle injury. Irving was lost for the entire 2009 season after an automobile accident left him with a punctured lung, broken rib, compound fracture in his leg and a separated shoulder. If Irving is able to retake his place in the middle of the Wolfpack defense, he’ll emerge as one of the nation’s top linebackers.

Speaking of CBS Sports…the digital arm of the media company was recently engaged to take over responsibilities for the former embarrassment that was known as, The ‘new GoPack’ came on line yesterday and it appears that CBS did a great job. Our readers have been critiquing and discussing in this thread that I think you will enjoy.

    Can’t wait to watch Nasty Nate destroy some people this year.

    It is about time they fixed Go Pack. The design of the previous version was horrible. I complained the day it was rolled out. They must have realized it sucked because it didnt’t last long

    Nate needs to cut a bit of bulk from the way he looked in Spring… he was a beast because of speed, and the speed had taken a significant hit. Hopefully 4 more months will help him get past that hurdle…
