Marquise Williams presents formidable opening-night foe for South Carolina

Heading into the season opener in Charlotte, there’s one big difference between the two teams — the Tar Heels have a senior quarterback capable of carrying his ball club, while the Gamecocks will likely start a new signal-caller with six career pass attempts to his name. It certainly aids UNC’s cause that it has a quarterback in Marquise Williams who threw for 3,000 yards and 21 scores a season ago. (Charleston Post & Courier)

Jonathan Cooper feels poised for a breakout year

Arizona Cardinals guard Jonathan Cooper has had a rough start to his NFL career. His rookie season was derailed by a broken foot, while his sophomore season he played in only 10 games due to various injuries.

Bruce Carter Primed for Leadership Role

Bruce Carter was one of the Bucs’ key free agent signings this offseason and since arriving in Tampa, he’s been working with the first-team defense as their middle linebacker. Although Carter is new to the Buccaneers, Head Coach Lovie Smith said that, because of the nature of his position, he needs to quickly develop into a leader on the Bucs’ defense. (Tampa Bay Buccaneers)

Q&A with Pathers DB Tre Boston

Tre Boston: "I stayed in Charlotte pretty much all of the off-season, just grinding with guys like Luke Kuechly and Greg Olsen. I wanted to show my teammates I was ready to work in the off-season. I want to keep that starting job, too, and make sure no one is catching up to me. I want to be that playmaker I was at the end of last season so I can show my worth." (Charlotte Observer)

Five candidates for ACC Offensive Player of the Year

5- Marquise Williams, QB, UNC: Williams threw for more than 3,000 yards and rushed for more than 700 last season. The Tar Heels return everybody on offense, including five starters on the line, most of their receivers and a stable of backs. Should UNC get its defense on track and get in contention for the Coastal title, Williams could emerge as a favorite here. (Carolina Blue)

Extra Points: Summer Camping

The football year flows with the consistency of an ancient mountain stream: August is training camp, fall is the season, winter is recruiting for coaches and conditioning for players, March and April is spring ball, May is recruiting for the coaches and exams for players. And June is camp month. “Eight days in a row,” Larry Fedora said Thursday. (GoHeels.com)

Titans LB Zach Brown: 'I can hit stuff faster'

Zach Brown can turn and run with just about anyone. The inside linebacker’s speed is what got him selected in the second round by the Tennessee Titans in 2012. In 2013 he got sideways with the previous coaching staff. Last year he had to win over Ken Whisenhunt and new coaches. He did so, then was lost four snaps into the season with a torn pectoral muscle. (ESPN.com)

Sylvester Williams making strong impressions at nose tackle

With the conclusion of minicamp, Sylvester Williams has impressed coaches and teammates alike, taking ownership of the nose tackle position in the new 3-4 defense that's being installed. Perhaps no one has been more impressed than Defensive Coordinator Wade Phillips, who said that Williams has really taken advantage of his offseason as he tries to prove himself to a new coaching staff. (Denver Broncos)

Talking yourself into UNC football is an annual tradition

When we get to the ACC, there's one reliable mile marker: "talking yourself into North Carolina football even though you know better." If I'm convincing myself this is the year North Carolina puts everything together, it must be mid-June, and there must be about 12 weeks left in the offseason. It's not hard to see why this happens. UNC seems to always return last year's two deep and is always welcoming a new top-30 class. (SB Nation)
