Web Run: NFL will roll dice on McLendon

Somewhere out there in NFL land, a team will take a chance on T.A. McLendon. And that's exactly what it will be -- a chance, a gamble, a shot in the blind, a lottery ticket that comes with an expensive price tag. <p><small><b>Other featured stories for 12/14:</b></small> <li><a href="http://gopack.collegesports.com/sports/m-baskbl/spec-rel/121304aaa.html" target=blank><b>Collins' Time has Come </b></a>

Quote of the Day:"The biggest potential silver lining for State in losing McLendon early could be in the recruitment of Toney Baker, Ragsdale's star running back. The Wolfpack has long been a contender for Baker, considered one of the top high school rushers in the nation. Now Baker will have one less running back to compete against for playing time, should he choose N.C. State." - News & Record's Jim Young

Quote of the Day 2:"I think T.A. has all the tools to be a starting running back in the National Football League. There's no question about his explosiveness and his speed. I think he has good instincts, and his pass-catching is good enough. But he has some issues, and it's going to be up to him to win people over in his workouts. Right now there are a lot of concerns about whether he'll be able to withstand a 16-game season, and there are some work-ethic and character issues. And fumbling is always a concern with any running back, and it may be even more so for him." - Mike Detillier, a draft analyst for M&D Draft Report

Somewhere out there in NFL land, a team will take a chance on T.A. McLendon. And that's exactly what it will be -- a chance, a gamble, a shot in the blind, a lottery ticket that comes with an expensive price tag. To assume that the N.C. State running back is a legitimate professional football prospect is to assume much too much. Read More

Collins' Time has Come
Tony Haynes * GoPack.com
Through the first three years of his basketball career at NC State, center Jordan Collins patiently waited his turn. Sometimes that wait was even painful because of a series of nagging injuries that limited his playing time. There was also another obstacle: he came in four years ago with a class that included Josh Powell and Ilian Evtimov, two players who commanded playing time at the `5' position. Now a senior, the 6-10 Collins is taking full advantage of the opportunity to make his mark with a team that continues to climb up the national rankings. Read More
