With the 2nd pick in the NFL Draft, the New York Giants select…

Eric Ebron, TE, North Carolina

Selection made by Adam Ganeles, GMENHQ

Here is the analysis on the selection:

Despite rumors surfacing that the Giants have cooled on Ebron, don’t sleep on commonly used misdirection tactics. Bottom line: the Jints need playmakers on offense, and the 6’4 tight end is the most dynamic offensive skill prospect available with Evans OTB.

He possesses ELITE explosiveness and fluid athleticism for the position (akin to a 245 lb. wide receiver). Ebron can wreck a game with YAC after short receptions or test the back line of defenses vertically.

With 10-inch hands, drop concerns are more concentration based. While willingness to block is present, technique in this area needs amelioration

    Been saying this for months! He would fit perfect with Eli, and replace Hakeem Nicks.
