With so much interest among New York Giants' fans in Eric Ebron, the North Carolina tight end who is considered a potential first-round pick for the Giants in the 2014 NFL Draft, let's catch up on what happened during the North Carolina Pro Day. Ebron, of course, was the star attraction.
Ebron was measured at 6-foot-4 1/4 and weighed in at 253 pounds, up three pounds from his NFL Combine weight.
Ebron had a slight case of the dropsies during the Pro Day, apparently dropping three balls and "double-catching" another. That led to some analysts noting the high percentage of balls Ebron dropped in 2013.
Had an 11.43% drop rate in 2013 RT @jjones9: Here at UNC Pro Day where TE Eric Ebron has registered three drops so ffar— Josh Norris (@JoshNorris) March 25, 2014
Told Eric Ebron/TE/North Carolina did not look good at pro-day...dropped a number of passes and generally looked poor in drills..— Tony Pauline (@TonyPauline) March 25, 2014
Ebron apparently recognized that he needs to be more consistent on the easy plays.
Offensive tackle James Hurst was another intriguing player who worked out Tuesday. Hurst, 6-foot-5 3/8 and 298 pounds, had an injury-plagued 2013 season.
