As a follow-up to our look at Wolfpackers in the NFL (click here), The National Football Post has taken a closer look at NC State’s NFL prospects.
Their scouting series gives a brief description and impression of each player. The only Wolfpacker that earned the NFP is Nate Irving. No surprise.
Unfortunately, the NFP may be right on in their assessments Click here to see their comments.
LB Nate Irving: No. 56 (6-1, 235)
A physical, wrap-up tackler who possesses impressive lower body strength with the ability to drive his legs through contact. Exhibits a good first step but displays only average straight-line speed in pursuit. However, he reads and reacts quickly to the play and is consistently getting good jumps on the football. Does a great job playing with leverage when taking on linemen in the hole and holding his ground at the point of attack. Is consistently working his way toward the play, even through contact, and uses his hands well to stack shed when needed. Also, plays the piano well down the line and keeps himself clean when shuffling his way through traffic.
