With the NC State 2023 football season now just two weeks away, there's no better time to start previewing each and every position group for the Wolfpack! The Pack has some returning faces in the running back room, but some new names looking to step up.

Cory Smith and Michael Clark take an in-depth look at the potential for players like Jordan Houston and Michael Allen after their 2022 seasons. Can Houston take on more of the load or will Allen be the bell cow back this fall? And what will former 4-star Kendrick Raphael's impact be this season? What about players like Delbert Mimms and DeMarcus Jones? We cover it all on this Pack Pride Primer!
