1st in ACC - Atlantic

Andrea Adelson ESPN Staff Writer 

NC State returns eight starters on defense and should be led by its front seven, bigger and stronger than any group Dave Doeren has had with the Wolfpack. Seven players power cleaned over 350 pounds during the offseason: defensive ends James Smith-Williams, Kentavius Street and Bradley Chubb, along with defensive tackles Justin Jones, Eurndraus Bryant, B.J. Hill and Monty Nelson. When Doeren arrived four years ago, he only had one player hit that mark.

Dave Doeren raved about DE Bradley Chubb. "We've not had a pass rusher that forced teams to adjust protections, but Chubb can be that guy." Other ACC coaches have agreed, calling Chubb potentially one of the best pass rushers in the league.

Asked if fans will notice a difference in the offense under new NC State coordinator Eli Drinkwitz, Matt Dayes offered a huge grin and said, "oh, it'll be night and day." Dayes said he expects both him and Jaylen Samuels to line up at receiver often, too. He's aiming for 1,000 yards rushing and 1,000 receiving this year.

ACC forecast: Clemson, FSU should rule

The ACC is again top-heavy, and Clemson and Florida State are legitimate CFP title contenders. But don't sleep on the Coastal division either, especially with Miami on the rise.
