Heading into the 2012 season Brennan Williams was on his way to being the best available right tackle in the 2013 NFL draft. A late season torn labrum has slowed down one of the best tackles in Tar Heel football, but expect the consistent play he exhibited in Kenan Stadium extend to the NFL.
Williams blocking was overshadowed by the magnificent play from Gio Bernard however the team who selects Williams is going to have an athletic linemen who could be starting on the right side of the line very early in his career. Williams has first day talent but the injury will most likely cause him to slide to day two.
Projection: Round Four
Travis Bond was overshadowed in 2012 by the play of Jonathan Cooper as well as some nagging injuries that plagued the senior who started all 13 games at guard in 2011 as a junior. Bond has the size and athleticism to play in the NFL, but will need to show he can stay healthy to benefit the team who selects him. Bond will most likely be drafted in the fifth or sixth round, but is another player in the right system who could make a roster and contribute early. Bond has experience and has performed at a high level. The question is can he do it consistently at the next level.
Projection: Round Six
