Mel Kiper Mock Draft: North Carolina TE Eric Ebron to Giants

Eric Ebron - Jeremy Brevard-USA TODAY Sports

ESPN's Mel Kiper mocks Eric Ebron to the Giants in his latest 2014 NFL Mock Draft.

Amidst the 2014 NFL free agent-frenzy ESPN NFL Draft guru Mel Kiper has released his latest 2014 NFL Mock Draft, selecting North Carolina tight end Eric Ebron for the New York Giants with the 12th overall pick.

Kiper writes:

The Giants are essentially without a decent tight end with Brandon Myers now in Tampa Bay. Ebron fixes that situation pretty quickly, and gives Eli Manning the kind of target I'm not sure he's really ever had when you consider the size, speed and pass-catching combination Ebron offers. The Giants also need a linebacker here, but I don't see the value lining up with the pick slot anymore -- and they haven't traditionally hit that spot in Round 1, anyway. Ebron is a player I can see landing in the top 10, so the value is pretty good here.

The way the Giants are proceeding through free agency, Kiper might be on to something here. Ebron [prospect profile] has been talked about a lot here, and we know many of you would love this pick.

Texas A&M wide receiver Mike Evans, Michigan offensive tackle Taylor Lewan and UCLA linebacker Anthony Barr are all off the board by the time the Giants selection comes up in Kiper's mock.
