During his weekly coach’s television show, N.C. State coach Tom O’Brien saw Russell Wilson step forward in the pocket, find a running lane and sprint forward for a 9-yard gain to Wake Forest’s 4-yard line. On the show, O’Brien said Wilson needs to do that more often. He didn’t mean necessarily running the ball – N.C. State’s staff has been pleased with the way Wilson has looked to get the ball to his receivers this season. Wilson’s tendency when he feels pressure is to retreat back from the pocket, sprint to the side away from the pressure and throw on the run or scramble for yards. "He’s got to step up in the pocket a little more," O’Brien said during his weekly news conference Monday. "There’s been holes up inside, and he’s been going out, back and around. Now he was able to do it with Pittsburgh and he was able to do it at Wake Forest. He wasn’t able to do it with South Carolina. So you have to do it right all the time."

Wilson still a work in progress.
