2004 Outlook

- Cross has rotated between DT and DE during his time at NC State but appears set at defensive end. Possesses good athleticism and speed but has been only a spot performer up until this point. Will most likely be listed on the two-deep and should see plays increase in 2004. Cross is now one of the veteran defensive linemen on the squad. Because of influx of talent around him, Cross will definitely have to step it up a notch in 2004.
