RALEIGH, N.C. -- NC State head coach Dave Doeren says the Wolfpack coaching staff is using spring practice to evaluate personnel.

"The depth chart is dynamic. It's changing. It's changing in the middle of practice sometimes. It's called a battlefield promotion or a battlefield demotion."

"That's what spring is for us in the first year. It's an evaluation time for us to really learn what we can't and can do well. We'll try to adjust our schemes accordingly."

"We've moved a few guys back and forth. In the secondary, Byrd has spent some time at safety and corner. We've got guys playing nickel and corner. Some of the linebackers are multi-trained in that way as well."

"It was fun to watch. The guys had good energy. It was good to see guys finish plays."

"We're teaching the offense... day-by-day we're adding pieces here and there. Some of htem have diferet skillsets so coach Canada is making sure he's calling plays accordingly to who is in the game."

"Jacoby is doing really well. He's been up-and-down, which you expect, learning a new offense and new teamates. He competes and he's a great leader. He's really energetic."

"Bra'lon Cherry made a couple of plays today, a new receiver. Cole is struggling snapping the ball at times, but he's playing hard."

"Those guys should be in high school.... those two guys should be going to prom and things like that. We expect that. I love their work ethic. They show up everyday."
