Junior wide receiver Emeka Emezie is now NC State’s top wideout, and he’s ready to take on that responsibility. After impressing in brief time in his freshman year and shining in his sophomore year, the spotlight is on Emezie.

With the second week of the NFL preseason almost in the books, a handful of NC State alums are continuing to impress in training camp and game action and are working their way up their respective teams’ depth charts. Here are a few former Wolfpack stars who shone the brightest in their second preseason games.

In the school's ever-expanding attempts to satisfy the needs of students and the overall fan base of its team, NC State is implementing a plethora of changes to Carter-Finley Stadium. These will include the sales of beer and other alcoholic beverages as well as upgrades that will allow fans to remain cool during games.

With the first week of preseason games in the books, a handful of recent NC State alums are impressing their new teams and taking advantage of training camp reps. Here are some of the young guys who have been impressive in training camp or are battling for spots.

With star linebacker Germaine Pratt gone, NC State will try to reload with junior Louis Acceus. The New York native steps into the spotlight after a 2018 campaign that included 12 games played, and one start for an injured redshirt freshman Isaiah Moore. Acceus moves over to Pratt’s weak-side linebacker spot after spending last year at middle linebacker.

It's that time of year again. In a few short weeks, Carter-Finley Stadium will be filled, and the Wolfpack will be taking the field against ECU. However, we still have a little ways to go until we get there, so in the meantime, let’s do what fans and the media do best: speculate! 

NC State opened fall camp last Friday, with the opening half of practice open to reporters. This year's roster is one of the youngest head coach Dave Doeren has coached at NC State, but also one of the deepest. 

ESPN found itself on the hot seat on Tuesday after an article titled “Position U” was published on its website. In the article, ESPN Stats & Information developed a formula which they thought would give a fair and accurate assessment of which colleges produce the best crop of players at each position group for the NFL. 

Despite losing starters at quarterback, running back, two wide receivers, left tackle, left guard, and center, the Wolfpack may field the deepest roster head coach, Dave Doeren, has ever had in his seventh year at NC State.
