VIDEO: Bradley Chubb: “I’m trying to learn everything from Von Miller”

Published

on

Former Wolfpack DE, Bradley Chubb sits down with NFL World to talk about his first training camp and what he expects from himself and his team this coming season. Chubb was recently named a starter for the Broncos and talks about learning from a great like Von Miller.

Full video is above and bulleted highlights are below:

  • Everyone at this level was one of the best on their team in college. Making him better everyday playing at this level.
  • Trying to learn everything Von Miller that he will teach him. Trying to learn from everyone. Watching film then asking guys about what worked later. Taking what works and implementing it into his game.
  • Every tackle is quick at this level, so the ‘get-off’ is the most important. In college it can just be ok, but at this level you need an elite ‘get-off’ every time.
  • Lots of expectation being a first rounder. Has to work his tail off every day, learn from everyone and be the best he can be.
  • Doing all the rookie stuff. Carrying shoulder pads, just trying to earn his keep.
  • Had a week where it was all rookies. Good bonding time. Talked about wanting to be part of the winning tradition in Denver.
  • Last year was Von’s first losing season. Our obligation to go out there and give it all we got.
  • Personal goal is to go out and play his best every game. If it leads to rookie of the year, so be it.

Garrett Bradbury Set to Play Center for Vikings

Published

on

When Minnesota drafted former NC State Consensus All-American Garrett Bradbury with the 18th overall pick last month, there was debate whether he would continue to play Center at the next level, or get shifted somewhere else on the line.

Well, it looks like the debate is over before there was a chance to have one.

Bradbury played center at North Carolina State and lined up there with the media watching at Wednesday organized team activity.

Pat Elflein had been the starting center, but he’s now at left guard.

“I’m just focusing on left guard,” Elflein said, via the Pioneer Press. “It feels great. I played there in college. That was always one of my things. Just being able to play both positions.”

Torin Dorn Participates in Agent Pro Day in Phoenix

Published

Former NC State Forward Torin Dorn worked out at an Agent Pro Day in Phoenix today in front of NBA Scouts and executives, along with two other former Wolfpacker’s: Cody and Caleb Martin (Transferred to Nevada).

Dorn impressed at the Portsmouth Invitational a month ago.

I would be shocked to see Dorn drafted, but workouts like these could help him get an invite to the NBA Summer League or get a G-League contract.

Dorn has always defied the odds, as he so perfectly laid out in the tweet below accompanied by a highlight reel.

Josh Jones Wants Packers to Trade Him

Published

on

Former NC State Safety Josh Jones wants to be traded from the Packers according to Rob Demovsky of ESPN.

According to Demovsky, Jones is skipping voluntary OTA’s, and working out on his own in Florida.

I’m guessing Jones didn’t appreciate Green Bay drafting Safety Darnell Savage in the 1st Round a month ago, with the 21st overall pick.

Obviously Jones would like to be traded to a team where he can start, but there are plenty of other Safeties on the market.

Jones was drafted by the Packers with the 61st overall pick, in the 2nd Round of the 2017 NFL Draft, after leaving NC State after his Junior year.

Arizona Cardinals give Adrian Wilson a Promotion

Published

Former NC State Safety Adrian Wilson has received a promotion in the Arizona Cardinals organization.

For the past 4 years, Wilson has served as a pro/college scout, but recently was promoted to Director of Pro Scouting.

After playing three seasons at NC State, Wilson was drafted in the third round by the Arizona Cardinals in the 2001 NFL draft

Wilson played 12 seasons for the Cardinals, and is in their Ring of Honor, and was on the Hall of Fame ballot last year for the first time, and I made the case last year that he deserves to join the club one day.
