Eric Ebron, TE, North Carolina

A crowded, top-heavy class of tight end prospects may be highlighted by this standout from the University of North Carolina. Ebron finished the 2013 season as one of the few highly productive TEs.

More than enough athleticism to challenge defenses all over the field. He is a touch thin and could afford to add some bulk, especially in regards to his in-line blocking ability. Keeps his eyes on the ball and shows no fear over the middle. Light frame can be pushed around by some stronger players, but this balanced by his burst and agility which he can use to gain separation. Very good hands. Focus falters at times and will drop an easy one. Can make difficult catches in high traffic. Knack for finding soft spots in zones. Quickly looks to get upfield after securing the catch. Catches the ball at its highest point.

Blocking will need work, but he has the core athleticism where it shouldn't be an issue long-term. Can hit the second-level and move defenders around since he has some forward momentum.

Ebron projects as a first round pick in the 2014 NFL Draft.
