The Baltimore Ravens reportedly have former North Carolina Tar Heels’ tight end Eric Ebron as their top target with the 17th overall pick.
Tony Pauline of Draft Insider, who first reported the news, also reported that the Ravens plan on taking a running back. They won’t take one in the first round, but they will likely select one before the fourth round.
I’m told to expect the Ravens to grab a running back by the time the fourth round closes out. Two names I’ve heard connected with the team for a while are Jeremy Hill of LSU in round two or possibly Terrance West in the fourth frame. Hill has been drawing rave reviews from scouts for his underrated pass catching skills. The Tennessee Titans and Atlanta Falcons are another pair of teams hot after Hill.
Hill rushed for 1,401 yards and 16 touchdowns on 203 carries for the Tigers last season and West set an FCS single-season record by rushing for 2,509 and 41 touchdowns on 413 carries last season.
