Nyheim Hines is Only 5 Receptions Away From Colts Rookie Record

Published

on

Former NC State running back Nyheim Hines is within reach of the Colts’ Rookie Receptions record with one game left versus the Titans on Sunday night.

Hines has 60 receptions for 400 yards and 2 touchdowns on the year (Also 310 yards rushing, with 2 touchdowns). His 60 receptions are tied for the 4th most receptions by a rookie in Colts history.

If he were to simply keep up his season average of 4 receptions per game, he would finish tied with Marvin Harrison for the 2nd most receptions by a Colts rookie.

Hines only needs 3 receptions to break Edgerrin James’ rookie record for receptions by a Colts running back.

There haven’t been many rookie running backs in NFL history that have done what Hines has done in 2018. His 60 receptions are the 12th most in NFL history by a rookie running back, and he will likely finish in the Top-10.

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.”

Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins is looking forward to taking snaps from Bradbury for quite some time.

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.
