    NFL.com's Bucky Brooks writes that pro scouts "are smitten with the talent and potential displayed by" UNC junior TE Eric Ebron.
    Ebron caught 40 passes for 625 yards and four touchdowns as a sophomore, a campaign in which he flashed brilliance but struggled with consistency. He snagged six passes for 108 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's loss to Georgia Tech. The 6-foot-4, 245-pounder "blows past linebackers and safeties down the pipe and uses his size and length to post up defenders unable to match his size and physicality over the middle of the field," writes Brooks. Ebron is so big and athletic that the Tar Heels have used him as a pass-rushing defensive end. "It's not a surprise the Tar Heel star is beginning to attract attention from NFL scouts searching for a Jimmy Graham-like playmaker between the hashes," writes Brooks. Sep 24 - 2:33 PM

    I'd be pretty surprised if we took another TE in the first 2 rounds. And if this guy's as good as his description, he won't be around when we pick anyways.

    Jimmy Graham...

    He'll go in the first for sure, possibly even top 10. His size and speed is rare, and he's got great ball skills.

    I could easily see Carolina, the Jets, Raiders, Steelers, and (gulp) Giants taking him.

    I would love to have him. Any UNC player I'm happy with, and we can go BPA if that is a TE then so be it.

    Former UNC RB Gio Bernard noted junior TE Eric Ebron has all the physical tools to succeed, but "somebody's going to take him under their wing and show him the right path."
    Ebron's physical skill is obvious, and we are very pleased in his development this season. The tight end struggled with consistency in 2012, dropping passes in contested situations, but Ebron has made difficult grabs this year while showing off excellent movement skills. We don't take Gio's comment as a negative, and it seems Ebron is already on the right path in terms of progression. His ceiling is sky high. Sep 27 - 10:59 AM
