That's alot of tarheels. Man, are they gonna actually show some better results on the scoreboard?

all of their good players are on D

they have a slew of top notch defensive playmakers.

Quinn, Sturdivant, Burney, Williams, Carter just to name a few.

This defense should be fun & great to watch!

I personally know Pat Devlin, he is NOT a top-tier talent at QB. He is getting hyped because he is a D-1 transfer to Delaware ala Flacco. Jerrod Johnson is going to shoot up draft boards, he is plain nasty. Jack Crawford is NOT a 3-4 olb by any means. He is way too stiff. Also, I think claiborne should be rated higher.

You could be right... but I'm guessing you're pretty young. Most people know not to post with such absolutes. It can have a negative effect on your credibility.
