Tar Heels put in solid work at pro day

The pro day session at Kenan Stadium was in large part about former UNC football players showing they’re in good health.

He was one of 15 former Tar Heels taking part in some form during the session. (Burlington Times-News)

UNC Defense Intent on Eliminating Big Plays

Ask Larry Fedora for the most pressing concern his North Carolina defense must address this offseason and his response is prompt and succinct. “Catastrophic plays,” UNC's head coach said recently. “We’d play well throughout the game and then give up a big play for a touchdown.

Could UNC cornerback M.J. Stewart help fill Panthers' biggest hole?

When NFL scouts finish their evaluations of North Carolina cornerback M.J. Stewart, they might note that he isn't the tallest or fastest player available in this year's draft. But there is one thing Stewart certainly isn't lacking: confidence. "I think I've established that I am one of the best corners in the nation," Stewart said after the Tar Heels' pro day on Tuesday. (Charlotte Observer)

Anthony Ratliff-Williams Adding Consistency to Explosiveness

North Carolina wide receiver Anthony Ratliff-Williams delivered with 10 offensive explosive plays of 25 yards or longer last season, including a pair of plays throwing the ball.

Tar Heels preparing for 2018 without spring game, set QB

The Tar Heels are back on the turf for spring practice but won't have a spring game like in seasons past.

Familiar controversies still linger: not knowing if Chazz Surratt or Nathan Elliott will start at quarterback. Both shared an even amount of reps Tuesday. (WRAL Sports Fan)

UNC receiver Austin Proehl has a clear route to NFL — in his father's footsteps

There went Austin Proehl again, zipping from one half of the football field to the other.

As he went through his wide receiver workout, some 20 NFL scouts, including one from the Carolina Panthers, jotted down notes from the sideline. (Charlotte Observer)
