Tar Heels aiming for Coastal Division title, other breakthroughs

There aren't a lot of constants in college football, except change. But since the ACC went to divisional play, either the Atlantic or the Coastal has been filled with self-cannibalization. Right now, it's the Coastal Division's turn. And North Carolina, voted the No. 23 team nationally in the preseason USA TODAY Coaches' Poll, aims to take advantage. (FOX Sports)

Quinton Coples is ready to be great

Quinton Coples is confident in his ability and his defined role within the Jets' defense. But it's taken the former first-round pick two seasons -- and 20 fewer pounds -- to get to this point. And he admits his NFL learning curve was a bit steeper than others'. When he arrived for camp his second year, he learned his new role would be as a rushing outside linebacker. (Newsday)

Extra Points: Snapshots from Camp

Random snapshots and observations from Saturday's UNC football practice, the team's second of preseason camp: You can bet the players love the cloudy, 70-degree temperatures and the somewhat drizzly conditions and that coach Larry Fedora does not. "It's been great-a lot of energy, guys flying around, hopefully you'll see that energy when day 16 comes around," receiver/punt returner Ryan Switzer says. (GoHeels.com)

Marquise Williams, Mitch Trubisky start QB battle for Tar Heels

Marquise Williams helped lead UNC's turnaround from a 1-5 start to a winning record and a bowl victory. Now he's competing with a player who has never taken a college snap to remain the Tar Heels' starting quarterback. "I'm working for it to be my job," the junior said Saturday during UNC's preseason media day. "I'm working to be on the first team. That's how you have to think." (WRAL Sports Fan)

UNC's Secondary Standouts

While it’s typically quite simple to isolate a most improved player within a particular position group, that’s not the case when it comes to North Carolina’s secondary. Seven different defensive backs were praised for their efforts during player interviews at UNC’s media day on Saturday. “Malik Simmons is doing a great job this year,” Ryan Switzer said. (Inside Carolina)

Fedora Looking for Production at QB

Quarterbacks Marquise Williams and Mitch Trubisky alternated days working with the ones during spring practice. That rotation pattern has continued into UNC’s first two days of training camp. Williams, who posted a 4-2 record in six starts last season, took the first-team snaps on Friday, while Trubisky, a red-shirt freshman, took the reps with the ones on Saturday morning. (Inside Carolina)

Why slimmer Jets LB Quinton Coples could have 'a monster year'

It started with the things he took away. No cheese, bread or what he calls “white sauces,” like mayonnaise or Caesar dressing. He replaced beef and pork with chicken and fish. “Don’t eat any of those, and you can lose five pounds easy,” said Quinton Coples, in his second year as the Jets’ rush outside linebacker. (Newark Star-Ledger)

Tar Heels hit the field; Meet fans today

North Carolina's annual "Meet the Heels" event today from 4-6 p.m. at Kenan Stadium will give fans their first chance to interact with the new additions to the Tar Heels. The most sought-after newcomer will likely be Charlotte running back Elijah Hood, widely regarded as the state's top recruit in the Class of 2014. (Durham Herald-Sun)

Vikings seventh-round pick Jabari Price turning heads

Cornerback Jabari Price, a seventh-round pick by the Vikings in May, is impressing some important people at training camp, including coach Mike Zimmer, who broke into the NFL 20 years ago as defensive backs coach. "That's good to see any time you can hit on a seventh-round corner," Zimmer said. "That's huge. We don't know if we've got a hit yet, but he's doing a good job." (St. Paul Pioneer Press)

Shaun Draughn takes reps with Bears first team

The Chicago Bears have plenty of talented running backs in their camp this season, but one guy in particular stood out in their workout Thursday, and that’s third year pro Shaun Draughn. Draughn, whose 6-foot, 205 pound frame has to make Marc Trestman give him a serious look as a change of pace back, took a lot of reps with the first and second team during practice Thursday, and he looked excellent doing it.

Tar Heels Begin Quest For Coastal Supremacy

It felt more like late September than the start of fall camp, but the Tar Heels hit Navy Field on Friday morning inspired, focused and ready to take on a challenging slate that is loaded with opportunities. With damp turf, a gray sky and temperatures pleasant enough that sweat didn't even grace the brows of overweight scribes, the Tar Heels got right to it as soon as the clock hit 9:50 this morning.
