Ourlads' Profile:

2014 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about Eric Ebron: North Carolina, 6043 250 4.59. Junior entry. Two-year starter. Athletic after catch. Has some stop and go quickness. A mismatch athletically for the linebackers and secondary. A raw route runner. Not stiff or mechanical, but needs to improve his cuts and body control. Gained separation in college with his athletic ability. Has the speed to get deep. A vertical threat who can close the cushion. Lines up wide or in the slot and can beat coverage with strength, athleticism, and quickness. He is equally as skilled catching a screen, crosser, or vertical route. Good athletic ability and tight end skill set. Caught 62 passes last fall and set a Tar Heel record for receptions and yards (973) in a season by a tight end. He also holds the career record of 112 catches for 1805 yards, passing former Terp Vernon Davis as the ACC tight end yardage leader. A hand catcher who can make the first tackler miss. Catches the ball away from the frame of his body. Needs to improve his inline blocking, perfunctory effort, and lower body strength. 2013 stats: 62-973, 15.7 ypr, 3 TD. OSR:2/18. First round. (A-33 1/4, H-10, BP-24, VJ-32).
