Cedric Gray is an absolute baller, as he was a legitimate game changer on the defensive side of the ball for the UNC football program during his college career.

There are plenty of linebacker-needy teams, as organizations look for gems at the position that can be long-term options for them down the road. Gray is built to be one of those guys, as we believe his NFL career will begin in the NFC East.

The NFC East likely will be a two-team race between the Philadelphia Eagles and the Cowboys. However, the Cowboys have some big holes to fill, as adding at the linebacker position will be critical before the season gets underway.

There is one downside to this, as Gray will face off against his former teammate Drake Maye twice a year. Not sure that we're prepared for some UNC football friendly fire!
