Wolfpack duo drafted

N.C. State didn't have a player picked until in the first 200 spots, then had two in the next 13 in the NFL Draft on Saturday.

Wolfpack center Ted Larsen went to the New England Patriots in the sixth round at the 205th pick. Eight spots later, defensive end Willie Young went in the seventh round to the Detroit Lions. Young was the 213th overall pick.

Larsen, a converted defensive lineman, steps into one of the best offenses in the NFL, likely as a backup to Dan Koppen, another player once coached by Tom O'Brien.

Young, a pass-rush specialist, goes to a team that took Nebraska defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh with the second overall pick.

The first sentence in this blog seems a little off grammar wise.

Hopefully Toney Baker gets a shot with someone. Also, Simon Harris (basketball player) inked a contract with the Cowboys.

Do these guys not proof read their articles?
Willie Young is, in my opinion, a bargain at 213. As far as Toney Baker goes, he will get looks somewhere.
