NFL Draft: Buffalo Bills hold visit with Eric Ebron


North Carolina tight end Eric Ebron is considered by most scouts to be the best overall tight end prospect in the 2014 NFL Draft, and is projected to be gone off the board by the middle of the first round. On Friday, one of the teams within the top 10 got an up close look at his talents, as the Buffalo Bills held a visit with Ebron, according to NFL.com.

Ebron could helped the Bills offense tremendously by giving second-year quarterback EJ Manuel a nice outlet option to throw the ball to as the franchise continues to build its passing game. They got off to a nice start with that in last year’s draft by selecting Manuel for under center, and then following that up with the selection of Robert Woods at wide receiver.

With that ninth pick, there’s not really any doubt that they’ll have a chance to select Ebron and expand the offense that much further as they try to break through the glass ceiling in the AFC East and challenge the New England Patriots.
