Dascenzo: Quarterback U? Don't look toward Chapel Hill

What is it exactly about North Carolina's history of never producing a quality NFL quarterback? Once I went searching for UNC signal callers who have made it in the pros, such names as these came up: Ronald Curry -- the Raiders took him in the seventh round in 2002 and liked his athleticism, but not as a QB. Chris Kupec drafted in 1975 by the Bills, Danny Talbott (1967 by the 49ers). Good college QBs, but not in the NFL. Jack Cummings (fourth round, 45th overall by the Eagles in 1960). Jeff Beaver in 1968. (Durham Herald-Sun)
