Three from Wolfpack picked for all-star games

Three N.C. State players will get another chance to impress NFL scouts in college football all-star games later this month.

Linebacker Audie Cole and receiver T.J. Graham were picked for the Senior Bowl, which is Jan. 28 in Mobile, Ala. and tight end George Bryan will play in the East-West Shrine Game on Jan. 21 in St. Petersburg, Fla.

Cole led the Wolfpack in tackles (108) and tied for the team lead in sacks (5.5). Graham was the team's top receiver with 46 catches, 757 yards and seven touchdowns and finished his career as the school's career leaden in kickoff return yardage.

Bryan caught 33 passes as a senior for 331 yards with four touchdowns and has the most career catches (126) of any tight end in school history.
