Former NC State Defensive Tackle Larrell Murchison Added to Titans Practice Squad

Published

on

Former NC State Defensive Tackle Larrell Murchison has been added to the the Titans Practice Squad after being released by them yesterday.

Murchison was drafted by Tennessee in the 5th round of the 2020 NFL Draft, and has played in 21 games for the Titans over his first two seasons, starting in 5.

In 2020, Tennessee signed Murchison to a 4-year rookie contract worth up to $3.57 million, but obviously that contract was nixed after two years. In his first two seasons, Murchison earned $1.38 million.

At NC State, Murchison earned 2nd Team All ACC honors in 2019. What made Murchison’s rise to All-ACC status, and ultimately being drafted so impressive, is the fact that he spent his first 2 collegiate seasons at Louisburg (JUCO) before transferring to NC State.

Here’s a look at Murchison’s stats at NC State:

Murchison is 1 of 16 Practice Squad players that Tennessee signed. Here’s a look at what Practice Squad players make in the NFL.

Practice squad players make $11,500 per week or $207,000 for 18 weeks. Veteran players with over two years of experience will make a minimum of $15,400 per week or $277,200 for 18 weeks, and a maximum of $19,900 per week or $358,200. (Link)

Former NC State Guard Terquavion Smith earned a spot on the 2023-24 NBA G-League All-Rookie Team.

Smith averaged 22.3 points, 3.4 assists and 3 rebounds per game for the Delaware Blue Coats. What’s crazy, is that he only started in 3 of the 36 games he played in. With that being said, he averaged 30.7 minutes per game. Smith shot 35.6% from three.

As a 2-way player, Smith also played 16 games for the Philadelphia 76ers, averaging 3.3 points in 5.3 minutes per game. He shot 37.1% from three.

NC State LB Payton Wilson Visited with the Steelers Yesterday

Published

on

Former NC State Linebacker Payton Wilson had a Top-30 visit with the Pittsburgh Steelers yesterday. Wilson is the first Linebacker the Steelers have brought in.

Wilson has already had Top-30 visits with the Dallas Cowboys and the Carolina Panthers.

PFF ranks Wilson as the #1 Linebacker in the 2024 Draft, and #26 on their Big Board.

1. LB PAYTON WILSONNC STATE

PFF BIG BOARD RANK: 26

Wilson has the length, movement ability, IQ and tape of a first-round linebacker. What will likely keep him from being drafted on Day 1 is his injury history and age. If healthy, he can be a starting inside linebacker in any defense. (PFF)

Will someone take Wilson in the 1st round? Will he be a 2nd round pick? If he slips past that, that’s just stupid.

A post shared by DJ Horne (@djhorne)

Horne is trying to become the first Wolfpack player to be drafted since Dennis Smith Jr. was drafted by the Dallas Mavericks with the 6th pick in the 1st Round.

While Horne might not currently be projected to be drafted, he is trying to change that tune at the Portsmouth Invitational Tournament which begins tomorrow.

Horne is a special player, and genuinely possesses the skill set to compete at the next level. Whether he is drafted, or signs a 2-way contract, what he put on tape this year warrants a chance.
