So, are you one of several people hoping the Pittsburgh Steelers draft North Carolina tight end Eric Ebron in the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft? If you are, you might want to close your browser right now.
According to Tony Pauline of draftinsider.net, Ebron’s Tuesday Pro Day didn’t go so well. Pauline goes on to say that the 6’4″ tight end dropped a number of passes during the day and looked poor in drills to boot.
Unless Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert changed his schedule, he was present to see Ebron poor showing firsthand.
While Ebron might very well be drafted somewhere in the first round come May, 15th overall appears to be too high for him. While he can function as an in-line blocker, he has a lot of room for improvement in that area. In addition, it appears as though he could use some improvement as a pass catcher as well.
During his college career, Ebron registered 112 catches for 1,805 yards and eight touchdowns.
Told Eric Ebron/TE/North Carolina did not look good at pro-day…dropped a number of passes and generally looked poor in drills..
