Week 4: Oh Snap (count)! Pack Participation Report

New, comments

NC State football was back in action after getting an extra week off (seemed longer than that) due to Florence. The Pack traveled to The Mountain State to take on Marshall - that other team from West Virginia.

After an impressive 37-20 win on the road, Oh Snap! is back with a position-by-position look at who played and how productive they were. Alright, let’s get to it.

OFFENSE

Matthew McKay DNP 1 5

Ryan Finley was your QB for the evening and he was productive, as usual. The only complaints I’ve seen floating around the interwebs is that Finley was a little high on some of his throws over the middle which left his receivers exposed to some big hits.

Reggie Gallaspy led the RBs in snaps and carries, as expected. Pennix continues to get some good experience as a backup. The running game continues to wow no one.

The WR group continues to show that they are talented and that talent goes at least six deep. The WRs have had injury issues in every game, but the backups have stepped up and the passing attack hasn’t missed a beat. Kelvin Harmon is still dominating defenders. It was good to see Steph Louis make it through an entire game. Hopefully, this is the beginning of a productive senior season for him. Unfortunately, both Thayer Thomas and C.J. Riley had their games ended early due to injury. Get well soon, guys! We need to get #Thayer4Heisman back on track.

BTW - here are the Top 5 graded receivers in the ACC this season.

TE

Dylan Autenrieth 45 0 1 45

Adam Boselli ST 3 ST
Thomas Ruocchio ST 3 6
Dylan Parham INJ 1 38 2 11 5.5 0 12 11
Damien Darden DNP 2 82

This game marked the season debut for the top two TEs and between the two of them they played every tight end snap. Unfortunately, from the observable stats, there was little impact. Neither player caught a pass and there doesn’t appear to be much improvement in the running game. Hopefully, we’ll see more impact from the TE position moving forward.

DL/OL Grant Gibson ST 3 ST
OG Bryson Speas ST 3 12
OG Philip Walton ST 3 ST
OG Terronne Prescod INJ 2 136

The starting offensive line of Witt, Fedd-Jackson, Bradbury, Sculthrope, and Jones played every snap and it looks like Tyrone Riley came in as an extra o-lineman for a couple of goalline, jumbo sets or something. The big news here is the absence of Terronne Prescod due to a “nagging injury“ . The depth chart for this weekend has Prescod as the starter so hopefully this won’t be a long-term problem. Another note is that after playing 11 snaps in the season opener at DT, Grant Gibson is now an offensive lineman and is listed as the backup to Fedd-Jackson for this coming weekend.

Roseboro, Bryant, Murchison, and Smith-Williams continue to be the starters on the defensive line. Alim McNeill got almost as many snaps as the DT starters, though. The biggest surprise to me is that Shug Frazier’s snaps have dropped every week (35 -> 26 -> 14). I don’t know if he is still bothered by the injury that hindered him in camp or if he is just getting outplayed. Congrats to Derrick Eason on his Wolfpack debut.

Despite Isaiah Moore being out with an injury, the Pack decided to go with the iron man approach at linebacker. Germaine Pratt and Louis Acceus (making his first career start) played every snap on defense and led the team in tackles (Pratt-11, Acceus-9). I’ve heard no word on why Moore was out but the depth chart for this weekend shows Moore OR Acceus as the starter so maybe it isn’t too serious. Congrats to C.J. Hart on playing for the Pack for the first time.

Stephen Griffin 3 3 38 1
Stephen Morrison ST 3 ST 3

Three games into the season, flipping Tanner Ingle from Tennessee is looking like the most significant moment of the #Pack18 recruiting cycle. He has started every game at nickel this season and made an impact. After only playing special teams last week, Freddie Phillips was back - getting the second most snaps at nickel. Stephen Griffin barely played. I don’t know what to make of this considering the hype surrounding him leading up to his injury in Fall camp. Phillips and Griffin had no stats in the box score. Stephen Morrison is the leading tackler on special teams.

Jarius Morehead continues to be the leader in the secondary from his strong safety spot. His pick-6 on Saturday might have been the highlight of the game. It looks like Time Kidd-Glass is starting to push Dexter Wright for the starting spot at free safety. Wright was the starter against Marshall but TKG got more snaps and the depth chart for this weekend has Dexter Wright OR Tim Kidd-Glass as starter.

Against Georgia State, it looked like Nick McCloud was starting to become the confident number one corner that we need. McCloud followed that up on Saturday by limiting Tyre Brady (who set the C-F single game receiving record last season) to 3 catches for 25 yards. On the other side of the field, Chris Ingram seems to have solidified his hold on the starting spot and has been reliable. Congratulations to him on his first career INT! De’Von Graves played the first two games of the season on special teams but got his first snaps at corner on Saturday. Kishawn Miller and Maurice Trowell only saw special teams time. Malik Dunlap also got his first action in a Wolfpack uniform on special teams.

SPECIAL TEAMS

I wanted to add a quick note on Chris Dunn. Dunn went 3-4 on FGs against Marshall. He is 6-8 on FGs this season for 75%. He has proven he is reliable enough on chip shots going 4-4 from less than 30 yards. He is 2-3 from 30-39 yards with a long of 32 (his miss this weekend was from 31). He missed his only attempt from more than 40 yards. Considering that NC State was the only P5 team in the nation who didn’t make at least 60% of their FGs from 2015-17, I’m happy with Chris Dunn’s current production. The big FG struggle last season was the kickers going 2-9 (22.2%) from 30-39 yards. Dunn has already matched those makes in three tries.

This concludes another week of Oh Snap (count)! If you want to take a closer look at where these stats came from, I used the GoPack.com boxscore for the Week 4 stats and the PDF posted under “Statistics” on the GoPack.com football page for snap counts and season stats.
