NIcks carries UNC flag

Saturday will be a big day for Carolina football because for the second consecutive season a player is expected to be selected in the first round of the National Football League draft. Wide receiver Hakeem Nicks should hear his named called by a team in the first round, one year after defensive tackle Kentwan Balmer went to the San Francisco 49ers as the 29th overall selection a year ago. Defensive end Hilee Taylor was drafted in the seventh round in 2008 by the Carolina Panthers, and he eventually made the team. (Carolina Blue)
