Scouting Report/Player Notes

There might not be a player on North Carolina with more hype right now than Eric Ebron, the star tight end heading into his junior season. Ebron has a solid build for a TE prospect, but when you watch him, he plays a lot bigger than his listed weight. This is an aggressive player who obviously takes pride in his blocking, but where NFL teams are going to get excited is in his potential as a receiver. He’s not fully refined yet in that area, but certainly has some of the most upside at a position where there are a ton of big names across the country.

Ebron can line up in line as a tight end or split out and play receiver, and his athleticism and speed are obvious on every play. I think in college football right now, there might not be more than a couple of players who have a higher ceiling than Ebron.

As a sophomore, he caught 40 passes for 625 yards and four touchdowns, and he should be a focal point of the UNC offense once again.
