North Carolina’s Eric Ebron is the top-rated TE in the upcoming draft. He is a talented receiver who is being compared to some of the league’s most dynamic TEs.
The Giants, selecting 12th, should be in position have to take Ebron. They are in the market for a seam-breaking TE, and Ebron, who grew up a Giant fan, could be the solution.
NFL Films’ Greg Cosell, appearing on Ross Tucker’s podcast, sees Ebron as a Vernon Davis-type. From Rotoworld:
“And he’s probably, see Vernon Davis is much more of a straight-line speed guy….This guy (Ebron) is more lateral in his movement. You could argue overall that he brings a little more to the table, as a more complete receiver.” Cosell did acknowledge Ebron’s college tape at times “leaves you wanting more,” but described Ebron as a “smooth, athletic mover who looks like a big wide receiver on film” and is “certainly capable of the spectacular.”
And here we go, folks, another candidate for the Giants to mull over in Round One.
