Ryan Finley, NC State Football
NC State should have no trouble throwing the ball over the field and may have to do that with so many changes on defense. The Wolfpack boast the ACC's best quarterback and wide receiver corps, which they will need to come through after...

Damarea Crockett and Drew Lock, Missouri Football
It was a tale of two halves for Missouri last season, as a 1-5 train wreck of a start gave way to a six-game winning streak in which points came in bunches. Barry Odom will have a new offensive coordinator this fall, but the same quarterback who...
