Marquise Williams fulfills his dream at UNC Pro Day

There's been speculation about Marquise Williams’ passing ability and how his style of play would translate to the NFL. “If I want to be compared to anybody, it would be Cam (Newton),” Williams said. “He was (also) criticized because he couldn’t throw the ball coming out of college.” But Williams wanted to use Pro Day to remove any doubt about what he could do.

UNC Pro Day: Ethan Farmer still fighting for shot at NFL

Ethan Farmer still has the dream. That’s why almost two years after playing his final game at UNC, Farmer was back at the Tar Heels’ practice field Tuesday, huffing and puffing and performing for dozens of NFL scouts. Farmer, a defensive tackle, was among 14 ex-UNC players being measured and executing drills during the school’s annual Pro Timing Day. (Fayetteville Observer)

Landon Turner commands attention at UNC’s pro day

For nearly 15 minutes Tuesday, former UNC offensive lineman Landon Turner was the only Tar Heel performing at the school’s pro day. Turner, being worked out by the New England Patriots' offensive line coach, did several drills in front of more than 30 NFL scouts. The 13 other Tar Heels performing at pro day were left to stretch or rest as all eyes were on Turner. (Charlotte Observer)

Turner's Take: Multiple Routes

The UNC football class of 2016 led the Tar Heels to their first-ever ACC Coastal Division championship to 11 wins and a perfect 7-0 record at home. They made Carolina football must-see TV and relevant in the national conversation into December. And on Tuesday, 11 of those seniors and three of their former teammates took to Navy Fields one last time for Pro Day. (GoHeels.com)

Fedora knows UNC can be better

UNC head coach Larry Fedora spoke with the media near the start of spring practice. Among the topics discussed were quarterback Mitch Trubisky, evaluating last season, the new leaders, questions and depth at linebacker, and new assistant coach Chad Scott. (Carolina Blue)

Fort Myers honors Tre Boston

As he received the key to the city, Tre Boston turned to the Fort Myers City Council. The former North Fort Myers High star who played in Super Bowl 50 for the Carolina Panthers, told Mayor Randy Henderson and council members that the honor meant the world to him. “Especially growing up in a place where people often don’t make it out," Boston said. "This is a dream." (Fort Myers News-Press)

Mitch Trubisky: "I’ve never been so excited"

The fair assumption is that Mitch Trubisky, UNC's 6-3, 220-pound quarterback from Ohio, will be taking first team snaps through the spring and into the fall. Unless something crazy happens, expect the junior to be the man this fall. "I’ve never been so excited," Trubisky said. "I’ve been waiting, but it’s time to get going and show everybody what I can do." (Carolina Blue)

Who's the best basketball player on each top 25 CFB team?

18. North Carolina: Bug Howard, WR: We're not mistaking Bug for a basketball player, but the UNC receiver is being recognized for his prowess on the court. Earlier in the season, Howard asked whether a pickup game involving UNC's basketball team at halftime would draw more fans to home football games. Howard averaged more than 20 points per game his senior season in high school. (ESPN.com)

Former UNC QB Marquise Williams taking leaner body, pocket attitude to pro day

When NFL scouts go to Chapel Hill on Tuesday for UNC’s pro day, they’ll see a different Marquise Williams than what last year’s film shows. Williams finished last season at 228 pounds, and he says he’s down to 215. And they’ll see a quarterback who isn’t too keen on taking off and running at the next level like he did for the Tar Heels. (Charlotte Observer)

Jonathan Cooper Plans To Bring A ‘Nasty Side’ To Patriots Offensive Line

The Patriots offensive line, which got manhandled and ultimately proved the team’s downfall in the AFC Championship Game at Mile High, could certainly use some extra talent, but there’s no question they could use more of an edge. New addition Jonathan Cooper says he brings that to the table. (CBS Boston)

Russell Bodine among NFL's top 25 performance-based pay recipients

Of all Cincinnati Bengals players, Russell Bodine received the most performance-based pay in 2015. Bodine received $352,271 for his 2015 performance in addition to his base salary. Bodine's base salary in 2015 was $510,000, but he played every single snap all season. In fact, he was the only player to play every offensive snap for the Bengals last season. (Cincy Jungle)

5 things Patriots fans should know about Jonathan Cooper

A fresh start may be just what Jonathan Cooper needs. The Patriots acquired the 26-year-old guard in a trade with the Arizona Cardinals on Tuesday. Touted for his athleticism as an elite prospect coming out of college, Cooper has struggled to stay on the field in his first three NFL seasons. With help from Patriots offensive line coach Dante Scarnecchia, perhaps he can realize his potential in New England. (Boston.com)

Jonathan Cooper sees potential to be a great player with the Patriots

Things haven’t unfolded the way guard Jonathan Cooper might have envisioned since the Arizona Cardinals made him the seventh overall pick in the 2013 NFL draft, but he isn’t running away from it. Instead, as he arrives in town following Tuesday’s trade that delivered him to the New England Patriots, he is embracing the chance to turn things around. (ESPN.com)
