Pick No.173

Pick (Overall): 35 (173)

Pick Analysis: Holcomb has been a productive player for the Tar Heels despite having to earn his roster spot as a walk-on. The Florida native redshirted in 2014 before becoming a special teams stalwart the next season (15 tackles). Eventually earning that scholarship, Holcomb went on to lead the team in tackles in 2016 (115, five for loss, five pass breakups in 13 starts), 2017 (93, 2.5 for loss, three pass breakups in 11 starts) and 2018 (105, 8.0, one sack, four pass breakups in 11 starts). Holcomb ranked in the top 10 nationally with four forced fumbles his senior year.
