UNC senior WR Ryan Switzer told Sports Illustrated "I believe I'm a first-round talent."
"I believe I have the opportunity this year to show that," he said. Switzer, you may recall, famously said before his sophomore season that he could "possibly win a Heisman." The 5-foot-11, 185-pounder isn't at either level yet, but neither is out of the question. The NFL draft advisory committee gave him a mid-fourth-round grade after the season, so there's work to do. But to start with, Switzer is one of the best return men in college football history. With one more punt return touchdown, he'll tie the NCAA record shared by Texas Tech's Wes Welker -- to whom he is comped -- and Oklahoma's Antonio Perkins. "I think the joint package helps," HC Larry Fedora said. "At [the pro] level, the more you can do, the more valuable you are." On offense, Switzer caught 54 passes for 693 yards and six touchdown in 2015. He may flirt with 1,000 yards this fall. Jun 13 - 4:48 PM
