Heading into the 2014-15 season, there are high hopes for the North Carolina football team.  The Heels are ranked #23 in the Nation, and are expected to contend for the Coastal Division crown.  If UNC is to have a successful season, they will need their most talented players to step up.

The following is a list of the five players who I think can have the biggest impact for the Heels this season.  To come up with this list, I looked at past stats but focused mostly on how each player can use their talents to help Carolina win games.

I also focused on players who play skill positions (including linebacker).  This is not saying that linemen will not help UNC win games; I just believe that the skill players will have a greater impact.

Without any further ado, here is my list of the five most talented Tar Heel football players.
