2013

Cole is expected to serve as a backup at middle linebacker to the newly acquired Desmond Bishop.

2012

Cole, Minnesota's 2012 seventh-round draft pick, was a Butkus Award semifinalist last season with 108 tackles and 5.5 sacks for N.C. State. He could win a backup role this summer, but it's not clear if he has the speed to eventually win a starting job.
