Former NFL scout Russ Lande believes UNC TE Eric Ebron is a "rare talent who could be better than Jimmy Graham."
"Although many are projecting that teams like the Ravens and Jets will be interested in him, a number of NFL people I've spoken with recently believe he will be selected in the top 12, because he is a rare talent who could be better than Jimmy Graham," Lande wrote. At 6-foot-3, 250 pounds, Ebron possesses top-end playing speed along with great lateral movement. After the catch, Ebron is a dominant runner in the open field, and can easily break through arm tackles or even run by defenders. With the type of skill set Ebron has, look for teams to use him in a Vernon Davis type of role at the next level.
