Packers worth the draft wait for Wolfpack's Manning

All's well that ends well for Terrell Manning. The former N.C. State linebacker had to wait longer than he expected to get picked on Saturday in the NFL draft, but he ended up with one of the best teams in the league.

While Manning waited, the Green Bay Packers took him with their fifth-round pick, No. 163 overall, Wake Forest had three players go off the board in the fourth round and fourth in the fifth round. The four draft picks tied the school record from 2009.

Pack shocker: Dean Haynes to start at RB

Dean Haynes, who began training camp as a starter at cornerback, has earned the starting running back job for N.C. State's opener at 6 p.m. Saturday against Western Carolina, according to a depth chart released this afternoon.

Haynes, a redshirt freshman, moved to running back about two weeks ago, according to team spokeswoman Annabelle Myers. Coach Tom O'Brien referred on a couple occasions last week to personnel moves the staff had made on a tentative basis, but didn't specifically list them.

Apparently Haynes' was the most significant move. He will be backed up by freshman Mustafa Greene.
