Former Duke safety Jeremy Cash ready to hear his name in NFL Draft

Jeremy Cash, a former Duke safety, has a chance to hear his name called Friday night, during the second and third rounds of the NFL Draft. If not then, expect him to be selected on Saturday, during rounds four through seven. CBS projects Cash to be a third-round pick. NFL.com projects him to come off the board in the fourth or fifth round. ESPN analyst Mel Kiper Jr. has him ranked No. 140 on his big board, and ESPN senior writer Todd McShay has him at No. 110. Cash wasn’t in ESPN’s latest three-round mock draft.

N&O investigation: Deadly Force

A warrantless entry, an innocent man shot dead. A squad of Harnett County deputies who spread fear south and west of the Cape Fear River. A homicide in jail, caught on tape, yet somehow kept under wraps. Who polices the sheriff's office?
