Ebron, who is 6'4" and 245 pounds, declared for the draft with his stock high after a career best 62 receptions for 973 yards and three touchdowns in his junior season. Ebron had three 100-yard games including a 193-yard performance against Miami (FL).
While the Bills say they are going to offer a contract to tight end Scott Chandler, Ebron's talent for catching the ball is obvious, which could make the team's choice simple if Chandler chooses free agency.
Here is what a few analysts are saying about Ebron:
Peter Schrager of FOX Sports said, "Could Ebron really go in the top 10? Why not? Doug Marrone and coordinator Nathaniel Hackett's offense is still a work in progress, the offensive line had a good year, and Ebron's been compared to Jimmy Graham. One of Ebron's former UNC teammates who's now playing in the NFL told me he's got the potential to be an NFL game-changer. The tape doesn't lie, either."
Matt Smith of NFL.com wrote, "I feel better about this being the pick than any other in the top 10. I like their talent at all levels of the defense, and they have playmakers at every other skill position on offense. They need a tight end, and Ebron will be the guy."
The NFL Draft is May 8, 2014.
