McAdoo, Jackson showcase D's depth

When a pair of backups wind up being the defensive stars of the spring game, either your starting players stink or you've got a chance to have a pretty darn good defense with a lot of quality depth. The performances put forth on Saturday by junior defensive end Michael McAdoo and sophomore cornerback ---combining for 11 tackles, four sacks, and three interceptions---are evidence that even with nine returning starters back, the 2010 Tar Heel defense has a wealth of talent all over the field throughout its two-deep rotation as well.
