RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) From the day Dave Doeren took over at North Carolina State, he knew he needed to find and develop bigger receivers.
Now entering Doeren's sixth season, the Wolfpack's top receivers are all big-bodied targets with the ability to make contested catches. And with an NFL prospect in quarterback Ryan Finley, it's easy to see why there's so much optimism in Raleigh about the team's potential to move the ball through the air.
"Definitely the way we attack every day is we want everybody to bet on us," junior receiver Jakobi Meyers said Sunday during the team's preseason media day. "We want to be the reason we score, we want to be the reason the offense goes. We want people to know that they can trust us and rely on us now. It's not what it used to be in the past. We're here to make plays."
