Eric Ebron will be at the draft, has at least four visits lined up

If you missed Wednesday’s PFT Live, you’re in luck.  You can still see it by clicking the show box on the right side of the page.

Guests included Lions running back Joique Bell and former North Carolina Eric Ebron.  The former has made himself into a high-level NFL running back despite not being drafted.  The latter will be taken in the highest level of the 2014 draft.

Ebron said (after we pried it out of him) that he’ll be at Radio City Music Hall on the evening of May 8, which isn’t very far from his hometown of Newark, New Jersey.

For that reason, he’d love to play for the Giants.  Ebron said everyone in his family roots for the Giants — except his mother, who’s a Cowboys fan.

She may eventually expand her fan base to include the Bills, Lions, Ravens, or Panthers.  Ebron said that he’ll visit all four of those teams in April.

Someone will be getting a great player with an even better attitude in May.  If he’s on the clock when the Giants make their first round pick, they’d be crazy not to give him serious consideration.

  1. Watching single game film of him; extremely athletic and a great receiver. But god is he an awful run/screen blocker, especially in space. Duke’s defense toyed with him last year

  2. Ebron, Donald and Evans are the three targets Giants fans would love unless a major player drops into their laps. If all somehow gone, can’t go wrong with Lewan or the safer pick of Martin. Gilbert and Dennard have been basically written off by the DRC signing. I’m personally rooting for a trade down: deep draft with big time WRs/OL and pass rushers which are all huge areas of need.

  3. Sounds great but I think his visit with the Lions was probably lined up before they resigned Pettigrew to another healthy contract and they have 3 TEs already slated to make the roster. I would be awfully surprised if the Lions drafted a TE in any round of this draft. I have all TEs off my board barring something unexpected happening.

    And I didn’t feel it was confirmed that he would be at the draft. He was pretty set in his position that he didn’t want to give that info away and he seemed to kind of jokingly agree about being in the green room as only a humorous maybe/hypothetical.

  4. Be careful of what you write, Jerry just might make a contract offer to Ebron’s mother!

    Two years, ten million, fully guaranteed.

  5. Giants will not be taking a TE at 12 who can’t block, their line is still a disaster. He is going to be a great player for someone other than the Giants.

  6. Guests included Lions running back Joique Bell and former North Carolina Eric Ebron. The former has made himself into a high-level NFL running back despite not being drafted.

    deos tihs mkae any snece

  7. I really hope he is a Gates or Davis or Graham or Gronk…not a Dustin Keller.

    Still think I rather have Buffalo go after a WR in round 1 and Austin Seferian-Jenkins in round 2, if he’s there. My dream draft…

    – 1 of Ebron or Seferian-Jenkins…
    – 1 of Mike Evans or Kelvin Benjamin…

    Anything else is extra after that…but do whatever it takes to get this done for EJ.

  8. He iwll be there at 12 but i am not convinced he is the Giants pick until he completes a full backround check.

    I could see Giants going Aaron Donald, Troy Niklas route in rounds 1,2.

    If Mike Evans is available at 12, he would be tempting too.

    Zach Martin is a safe, solid fall back option to help bolster the line with quality depth.

  9. Torrey Smith, Dennis Pitta, Eric Ebron, Steve Smith and Jacoby Jones would be a rotation that creates matchup nightmares.

  10. This kid is going to be a stud right away in the NFL. The Giants are a very conservative organization for the most part & I can see them taking an O-lineman or a D-lineman before they would take a TE. However, the Giants did sign DRC this FA so maybe Reese is changing it up.

    All I know is that IF the Patriots, Bill, or Jets get this kid I won’t be happy.

  11. He and Greg Olsen would be a 2 tight end set nightmare.

    Now if the Panthers could get a wide out or 2 worth a damn, they might be onto something.

  12. As a Giants fan, how do you not select this kid? You need a big target, you’re new OC is a former TE coach and he fills a need you didn’t address in free agency. Also, to those saying that the Giants won’t take a non-blocking TE, look to Dallas were long time TE coach Mike Pope went. McAdoo might have a totally different way of seeing the position. Also the Giants think that Beatty just had a bad year. NO CHANCE they take an OL in the 1st round again. Only 2 in the last 20yrs

  13. Understandable that he wants to play for NYG. His favorite team is a powerhouse that looks unproven at TE right now. Would be his ultimate dream. I’m not convinced Giants are high on him at 12. They could trade up or down with the way Jerry is going this off season. Reese has been getting after it.

  14. Marlon Brown was an undrafted Rookie Free agent and was way more productive then jacoby jones. To not include him in the list ninteysixer is blasphemous! but i agree. Adding ebron would be crazy. I think HAHA is going to bmore before pitt can get him. Thats my take on the first round for baltimore. 2nd round, travis swanson
