Video: UNC Tar Heel Running Back Gio Bernard announcing his decision to enter the 2013 NFL Draft
CharlotteObserver.com - By entering his name early in the 2013 NFL draft, Gio Bernard immediately improved a running back class that lacks first-round options.
Bernard, a redshirt sophomore from North Carolina, is at or near the top of his class in several mock drafts. Mike Detillier, creator and owner of the annual Mike Detillier’s Draft Report, has Bernard as the No. 43 overall prospect in April’s draft and No. 1 running back in the class.
Detillier said Bernard ranks above the other running backs in his class primarily for his versatility. He rushed for 1,228 yards this season for the Tar Heels while also totaling 490 receiving yards and an ACC-leading 246 all-purpose yards per game.
Detillier noted that running backs have been devalued in the draft in recent years. Alabama’s Trent Richardson went No. 3 overall last season, but the next back wasn’t taken until No. 31 when the Tampa Bay selected Boise State’s Doug Martin.
ESPN - UNC Quarterback Bryn Renner threw two touchdown passes in the fourth quarter after a goal-line stand preserved the Tar Heels’ lead, and North Carolina ended Virginia’s postseason hopes with a 37-13 victory on a cold Thursday night at Virginia’s Scott Stadium.
Tar Heel Receiver Quinshad Davis had a HUGE game against Virginia on ESPN’s Thursday Night Game, tying an ACC single-game record with 16 receptions, to total 178 yards.
UNC Tar Heels Football team (6-4) loses 68-50 at home to the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets (5-5).
The game was the highest scoring single game in ACC history and marks the second most points ever scored on a Tar Heel Football team. The loss was the first home loss of this season, which was Carolina’s Homecoming game.
Needless to say, our defensive units needs to improve and our offense needs to protect the football more and improve its play in the red zone and on 3rd downs (with 4 to 6 yards for the 1st down).
UNC Football’s NCAA rankings: 16th in Total Yards, 31st in Passing Yards, 26th in Rushing Yards & 15th in Points Scored
Georgia Tech’s NCAA rankings: 4th in Rushing Yards, 33rd in Total Yards & Points Scored
The Tar Heels Defense will have to defend the run more this week to stop the Yellow Jackets’ 4th ranked rushing attack
GO UNC TAR HEELS!
