02/20/14 - 2014 NFL Draft Scout Pre-Combine Top 64 Prospects: 14. *Eric Ebron, TE, North Carolina, 6-4, 245, 4.67, 1...He is talented but still unpolished even after setting school tight end single season records last year for receptions (62), receiving yards (973) as well as career receptions (112) and career receiving yards (1,805). A former prep and early college defensive end, Ebron has the ability to create size/speed mismatches as a receiver. If he bulks up he can be even more effective and aggressive in his overall game. - Frank Cooney, The Sports Xchange
12/13/13 - 2013 WALTER CAMP SECOND TEAM ALL-AMERICAN: TE Eric Ebron, North Carolina, 6-4 245, Jr., Greensboro, NC...A native of Greensboro, N.C., Ebron led the Tar Heels with 55 catches for 895 yards and three touchdowns. He set the ACC single-season record for receiving yards by a tight end and set the single-season school record for receptions by a tight end. - North Carolina football

Ebron's 895 receiving yards in 2013 are an ACC record for a tight end, besting the mark of 871 set by Maryland's Vernon Davis in 2005. The Greensboro, N.C., native is poised to be the first Carolina tight end to lead the Tar Heels in receiving since Mike Chatham in 1979 and 1980. - North Carolina football

11/25/13 - Tar Heels TE Ebron to declare for NFL Draft...North Carolina Tar Heels junior tight end Eric Ebron will skip his senior season and declare for the 2014 NFL Draft. The Tar Heels will play their final home game on Saturday against No. 24 Duke. Ebron is rated as the No. 2 tight end and No. 26 prospect overall eligible for the upcoming draft, according to current ratings by NFLDraftScout.com. Texas Tech junior Jace Amaro (No. 17 overall), who is reportedly on the fence regarding his NFL decision, is the only tight end currently ranked ahead of him. "I'm proud of what he's accomplished and how he's represented North Carolina," Tar Heels head coach Larry Fedora said of Ebron. "We're sad to see him go but excited for his future."
Ebron leads all ACC tight ends in catches (50) and receiving yards (774) this season, which are also career-bests and tops on the Tar Heels. He set a new school single-game record with 199 yards receiving and eight catches against Miami on Oct. 17, a game that put him on the national radar. The 6-foot-4, 245-pound tight end has fluid body control and agile feet to make acrobatic catches before shrugging off and accelerating past defenders with the speed to finish.
Despite having some focus drops, Ebron has shown the ability to make impressive catches on the outside, down the seam and even the one-hand variety. He is still a work-in-progress as a blocker, but the physical talent is what makes him such an exciting prospect. - The Sports Xchange
