Ram Work

The prototype for North Carolina’s Ram position is a defender quick enough to play man coverage and physical enough to stop the run. Terry Shankle thrives in the former, while Brandon Ellerbe prevails in the latter, resulting in a solid combination. Shankle played corner during his first four injury-riddled years at UNC. Ellerbe started at safety as a freshman in 2011 before moving to the Ram last season. (Inside Carolina)
