North Carolina TE Eric Ebron is widely considered to be the top tight end in this year’s draft class.
On Wednesday, Ebron joined Mike Florio of Pro Football and mentioned that he will visit with the Bills, Lions, Ravens, and Panthers next month.
Ebron also mentioned that he would love to play for the Giants given that most of his family already roots for the team.
Greg Cosell of NFL Films mentioned on the Ross Tucker Podcast that Ebron “theoretically” has a chance to be a similar tight end to Vernon Davis.
“And he’s probably, see Vernon Davis is much more of a straight-line speed guy,” Cosell said, via Rotoworld. “This guy’s more lateral in his movement. You could argue overall that he brings a little more to the table, as a more complete receiver.”
The Steelers, Jets and Packers have also been popular landing spots for Ebron in mock drafts around the league.
We have Ebron going to the Jets at no. 18 overall in our most recent 2014 NFL Mock Draft.
