Ranking the ACC units: Defensive backs

5. North Carolina -- The Tar Heels return three of four starters in the defensive backfield, including Kendric Burney, but the loss of three-year starter Trimane Goddard is significant. Da'Norris Searcy, who was impressive in the Meineke Car Care Bowl, will be facing much higher expectations as the leading candidate to replace Goddard. Burney and Jordan Hemby return as starters at cornerback. (ESPN.com)
