Player Overview

A Florida native, Brissett sat out the 2013 season as a transfer from Gainesville and earned the starting job in '14, opening eyes with his performance against Florida State as N.C. State almost pulled the upset. He finished the 2014 season with 26 total touchdowns (23 passing, three rushing), 2,606 passing yards and only five interceptions and his development as a senior in 2015 will be an interesting storyline for the 2016 NFL Draft.

Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: Brissett is a natural fit in the Wolfpack's spread offense, which helps showcase his natural gifts. He has the physical skillset needed for the NFL with a well-built frame and mobility to move the pocket and throw on the run.

He has some Houdini to him with his scrambling to keep plays alive behind the line of scrimmage, also showing an astute field sense to know where the sticks are, lowering his pads to finish. Brissett senses pressure well to step up in the pocket with vision to see the entire field.

WEAKNESSES: He will get rattled when the walls start to close in, dropping his eye level too early. He also needs to improve his 59.7 percent completions and show more consistent fundamentals.

09/20/2015 - Jacoby Brissett threw one touchdown pass and ran for another to lead North Carolina State to a 38-14 victory over Old Dominion on Saturday night. Brissett ran for a 21-yard touchdown, and was 18 of 27 for 179 yards passing with a 10-yard touchdown pass to Jaylen Samuels. "Jacoby had a fever and didn't feel well this morning, but no way are you keeping him off the field," North Carolina State coach Dave Doeren said. "He wanted to play no matter what." Matthew Dayes ran for 108 yards and a touchdown. Shadrach Thornton added 92 yards on the ground and a touchdown. Samuels also ran for a score. North Carolina State (3-0) finished with 256 yards rushing compared with minus-3 for Old Dominion (2-1).

Shuler Bentley was 11 of 23 for 151 yards with two touchdown passes for the Monarchs, including a 70-yard scoring strike to Ray Lawry to start the second quarter. After Lawry's touchdown, the Wolfpack held the Monarchs without a first down the rest of first half. North Carolina State held Lawry, the nation's leading rusher, to just 15 yards on 11 carries. Lawry entered averaging 218 yards per game. "Take away the screen pass (Lawry) caught and we pretty much eliminated him," Doeren said. - AP Sports
