Tar Heels Looking Good at Combine

USA TODAY Sports

Gio Bernard, Sylvester Williams, and Jonathan Cooper have been performing well at the NFL Combine.

A trio of Tar Heels have been living up to expectations and more at the NFL Combine in Indianapolis. From around the interwebs:

  • According to the National Football Post, Giovani Bernard was the best back of the day in Sunday's workouts. One scout in particular said Bernard was "the real deal" and warranted first round consideration.
  • USA Today says that Sylvester Williams is "the best nose tackle prospect at the combine." They predict him to be taken early in the second round.
  • Brett Friedlander of the Wilmington Star-News recounts the impressive numbers put up by Jonathan Cooper, including bench-pressing 35 reps of 250 pounds, the second-best result at the combine. Cooper also put up top-10 numbers for offensive linemen in the 40-yard dash, standing broad jump, and three-cone drill. Cooper is projected as a first-round pick in many mock drafts.
The 2013 NFL Draft begins on Thursday, April 25.
