North Carolina TE Eric Ebron is the consensus top tight end prospect in the draft this year, but is he one of the elite talents in the class? NFL Network draft analyst Daniel Jeremiah thinks so.
“Eric Ebron, I think he’s one of the premier players in this draft. I have him as my 13th overall player. It’s rare you’d say a tight end is worth a top-10 pick, but I wouldn’t have any problem at all if he was a top-10 pick in this draft class.”
Ebron, who made a pre-draft visit to Buffalo a couple of weeks ago, could be a consideration for the Bills and apparently Jeremiah has no problem with Ebron coming of the board at that point. Jeremiah compared Ebron to Vernon Davis and even feels that Ebron gets in and out of his routes better than Davis.
He did say he’s concerned about some of his drops, but feels he offsets that with some special one-handed catches.
“I think he’s kind of tailor-made for today’s brand of football at the tight end position,” said Jeremiah. “I think he’s going to be outstanding.”
