I see Tyler Zeller as an All Star C as soon as his second season, capable of going 17/10 every night.
I see Harrison Barnes as a 17/8/4 SF with a couple All Star nominations.
All four project, IMO, as NBA starters.
No Carolina team has done that under Williams.
Kendall Marshall is the 3rd best PG of the Williams era. He has a lot of trouble finishing at the rim and cannot keep anyone in front of him. Best passer of the Williams era, but nowhere near the best PG. If this wasn't a terrible year for PGs he'd still be in Chapel Hill.
John Henson will never average 15 ppg in the NBA. Never. I'd easily take Marvin Williams or Brandan Wright over him coming out of college. He'll be a decent defender in the NBA but there's no way he averages 15 ppg.
Zeller is not a good post defender at all. I can see him scoring a little because he is skilled but the All-Star prediction is out there in my opinion. If any NBA GM thought that was possible, he'd be the second pick behind Davis.
Barnes may be the one guy who is a better pro than college player, but overall he was a pretty big disappointment in his time at Chapel Hill.
The '05, '08 and '09 UNC teams were all better than the '12 team.
