NFL Draft Preview: Everything on UNC's Mitch Trubisky

The 2017 NFL Draft is here. North Carolina has particular interest in this year's first round: Mitch Trubisky could go No. 1 overall and will undoubtedly be off the board by No. 12. Here is coverage and articles of Mitch Trubisky leading up to the draft including interviews with UNC quarterback coach Keith Heckendorf and former UNC quarterback Marquise Williams. (Carolina Blue)

Tar Heel Tenure Prepared Trubisky for National Stage

Mitch Trubisky leaves North Carolina this spring to jump into the NFL Draft after four years on the roster—one as a red-shirt, two of seeing spot back-up duty to Marquise Williams and then one as the full-time starter. But the protocols and regimens he's been through certainly prepare him for the next level to a far greater degree than the surface facts might indicate. (Rams Club)

Cleveland Browns shouldn’t take UNC’s Mitch Trubisky No. 1 overall, and here’s why

I don’t think Cleveland will or ultimately should draft Trubisky at No. 1 overall Thursday night in the 2017 NFL Draft, although the Browns certainly are trying to keep people guessing until the last minute. I believe Clemson’s DeShaun Watson will ultimately be the better pro quarterback, while Trubisky will be an average NFL QB. (Charlotte Observer)

Ryan Switzer ready to adapt to whatever NFL needs

Ryan Switzer caught 244 passes at UNC, a school record. But the best thing he ever received was a life-changing piece of advice from his high school football coach. "I had my mind focused on just being a running back," Switzer said. "And I remember him telling me, in this world, the more you can do, the more you'll be valued, and I eventually found out what that meant." (WRAL Sports Fan)

UNC football coach Larry Fedora took part in the ACC’s annual post-spring practice teleconference Wednesday, and here is what the Tar Heels’ head man had to say: We've had a very productive spring, got a lot of reps with a lot of guys as we always try to do in spring, try to develop as much depth as possible, knowing that we're going to need a lot of that depth next season.

Ryan Switzer’s plan coming together on NFL Draft weekend

In life, as on the gridiron, Ryan Switzer has always kept his eyes down field. In his mind, accomplishments aren’t finish lines. They’re landmarks along the path The latest landmark should come into view this weekend. After a record-setting career as a wide receiver at UNC, Switzer will wait to see where he is selected in the NFL Draft, which starts Thursday. (Charleston Gazette-Mail)

Looking beyond the stats of Mitch Trubisky

Ohio State didn't want Mitch Trubisky. So he packed his bags and flew to North Carolina hoping to play right away. But he sat behind Bryn Renner and Marquise Williams. In the transfer era of limited patience, Trubisky could have easily left the Tar Heel program but he chose to stick it out. That tells me how committed he is to a goal, to his teammates, and to the process. (WRAL Sports Fan)

NFL Draft Preview: Marquise Williams on Mack Hollins

Another part of CarolinaBlue's pre-draft conversation with former UNC quarterback Marquise Williams focuses on Tar Heel wide receiver Mack Hollins. A deep threat star at UNC, Hollins missed half of the 2016 season with an injury and also missed the majority of the football part of the NFL combine. (Carolina Blue)

Mitch Trubisky Headlines UNC's 2017 NFL Draft Prospects

Mitch Trubisky is primed to become the first UNC quarterback in school history to be selected in the first round of the NFL Draft. The Mentor, Ohio native decided to enter the draft a year early after an efficient junior season in which his draft stock skyrocketed. Trubisky ranked fifth nationally in completion percentage, 10th in passing yards and 18th in yards per attempt. (Inside Carolina)

Could Mitch Trubisky be the No. 1 pick in the NFL Draft?

No Tar Heel football player has ever been selected No. 1 overall and though it looks as if Mitch Trubisky won't be the top pick either, there's still technically a chance. It's amazing to consider, given his Carolina career: Four seasons in Chapel Hill, just one of them as a starter. It's not the typical road, but Trubisky says it's a road that has prepared him for the pros. (ABC 11)

Who Is Mitchell Trubisky? The Draft's Top QB Answers the Question Everyone's Asking

The 22-year-old should at least raise an eyebrow. Twitch. Blink. Give us an emotion, man, any emotion for crying out loud. As he sits at a restaurant on Center Street, with locals all around him, Mitchell Trubisky doesn't show any sign of flinching, though. He just stares blankly ahead as the potential destinations are detailed aloud in dramatic succession. (Bleacher Report)

Mitchell Trubisky’s success buoyed by lifelong friends

The “Mentor Rat Pack” — “that sounds about right,” said Mentor football coach Steve Trivisonno — consisted of Mitchell Trubisky, Conner Krizancic, Brandon Fritts and Kade McClure. They played big at Mentor, won championships and dreamed even bigger. They were also gym rats. “We lived in the gym, lived on the field,” said Fritts. Sports brought them together, but they wanted more. (News-Herald)
