The 2014 NFL Scouting Combine will begin later this week, as teams across the league begin to get a closer look at some of the players they may have interest in when they are on the clock in the NFL Draft in May.
For the New York Jets, one of those players could be North Carolina Tar Heels tight end Eric Ebron, who is expected to be the first tight end off the board.
According to ESPN.com, the word on the street is that the Jets are “very intrigued” by Ebron’s talent.
Ebron is an athletic freak who is expected to put up jaw-dropping numbers in Indianapolis, so it would not be a surprise to see him generating even more buzz following the combine.
With the Jets needing any offensive weapons they can get their hands on to help out young quarterback Geno Smith, Ebron could be the best available option if he has not already been selected.
