1. TJ Logan, So. Running Back

TJ Logan is fast.  As a senior in high school, he ran a 4.4 second 40-yard dash.  To put that in perspective, that time would have made Logan the second-fastest running back in last year’s NFL draft.  Not only is Logan fast, he can make defenders miss in the open field, and has also shown his ability to break tackles. This season, Logan will play most of the snaps for Carolina, and after averaging nearly six yards a carry last season, I think he can definitely be a 1,000 yard rusher.

Logan is also an extremely dangerous kick-off returner, returning two kick-offs for touchdowns last season and averaging over 25 yards a return.  This is very valuable, as it ensures that UNC consistently gets good field position.  He is also a solid receiver who is especially dangerous on screen plays.

TJ Logan is a great running back, and any time he touches the football he can score.  Between him, Switzer, Davis and Williams, UNC should have a very potent offense in the 2014-15 season.
