Daily Tar Heels' Chapel Fowler writes that North Carolina senior WR Austin Proehl is Ryan Switzer's "heir at slot receiver and may play on the outside, too."
The Tar Heels lost about 70% of their receiving production after the close of the 2016 season, with Switzer, Mack Hollins and Bug Howard all finding their way onto NFL rosters in the spring. Proehl has the bloodlines for football -- his father, Ricky Proehl, played in the NFL for 17 seasons -- and is fresh off his most productive season since joining the Tar Heels, having logged a 43-597-3 receiving line in 2016. Alas for Proehl, his upside might end up being capped by what Brandon Harris -- assuming Harris wins the job -- can give at quarterback. Jul 10 - 5:02 PM
