Published

From 2-Star Tight End in High School, to a 1st round pick in the NFL Draft.

NC State Center Garrett Bradbury was drafted by the Minnesota Vikings last night in the 1st round, with the 18th overall pick.

Draft Room Phone Call

Bradbury is the 17th NC State player to be taken in the first round, and is tied with Dewayne Washington as the 12th highest drafted Wolfpacker.

The last and only other Offensive Lineman from NC State to go in the 1st Round: Jim Ritcher – 1980 – 16th.

Bradbury is the highest drafted Center since Mike Pouncey was taken with the 15th overall pick by the Miami Dolphins in 2011.

For only the second time in school history, NC State has produced back-to-back first round picks, with Bradley Chubb being taken 5th overall last year. The only other time: 1979 – RB Ted Brown – 16th –> 1980 – C Jim Ritcher – 16th.

NC State Football: Early Season Game Times Announced

Published

on

The ACC announced the early season football game times today. Here’s a run down of NC State’s.

  • Game 1: August 31st: East Carolina: Noon (ACC Network)
  • Game 2: September 7th: Western Carolina: 12:30pm (RSN)
  • Game 6: October 10th (Thursday): Syracuse: 8pm (ESPN)
  • Game 11: November 21st (Thursday): @ Georgia Tech: 8pm (ESPN)

Five of NC State’s last seven home games have kicked off at 1pm or before, and their 1st two games once again in 2018 follow suit.

Honestly, I was hoping the existence of the ACC Network would eliminate some of the ridiculousness, but if Week 1 is any indication, I guess not.

Also, the Wolfpack were hoping to get their matchup against Western Carolina on a Friday night game on ACC Extra, but nothing doing.

With that being said, two Thursday night games on ESPN is dope.
