UNC's Secondary StandoutsWhile 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.

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.

Shaun Draughn takes reps with Bears first teamThe 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 SupremacyIt 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.

Turner's Take: Opening DayThe Tar Heels were on the field for the first of 20 scheduled practices on Friday. Larry Fedora, complete with sunglasses and visor, stalked the field to oversee his charges. The Tar Heels are in their third year under Fedora, and every player on the roster was either recruited and signed by his staff or has two seasons and three springs in his fast-paced no-huddle offense and 4-2-5 defense under their belts.

Catching up with Hakeem NicksYou’re still wearing blue. Any feeling about it – I’ve been wearing blue since college. Carolina blue, Giants blue, Colts blue. I like them (shades of blue) all, but I come from Carolina blue. I’m a Tar Heel. I love the logo. I have it my house all over. (Indianapolis Colts)
