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.

--Dane Brugler (8/26/15)

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.

04/22/2015 - Jacoby Brissett is getting pretty comfortable at quarterback for North Carolina State. His first spring practice sessions in 2013 came shortly after transferring from Florida and getting familiar with new-at-the-time coach Dave Doeren. Last year came with the pressure of knowing he would take over as the Wolfpack's top QB. Brissett said Thursday that he's "seeing things a lot faster" and that "the game's slowing down more" than perhaps it did during his first two springs here. The redshirt senior will wrap up his final set of spring practices Saturday in the Wolfpack's annual Kay Yow Spring Game. Doeren says he sees a "more seasoned" quarterback than the one who arrived after the 2012 season. Brissett sat out in 2013, working with the scout team, before taking over last year. He threw for 2,606 yards and 23 touchdowns with only five interceptions and rushed for 529 more yards and three scores.

Among quarterbacks in the five power conferences, Brissett joined Heisman Trophy winner Marcus Mariota of Oregon and UCLA's Brett Hundley as the only players with 2,000 yards passing, 300 yards rushing, 20 touchdowns and five or fewer interceptions. Brissett's progression is one reason why bigger things are expected of the Wolfpack this season than perhaps they were a year ago - when they were coming off a dismal 3-9 finish that included an 0-8 performance in Atlantic Coast Conference games. "He's not thinking nearly as much," Doeren said. "Last year, he pressed at times in the spring and felt like he had to do everything on his own." - AP Sports
