Noteables

 

North Carolina TE Eric Ebron

Year: Junior

Measurables: 6-4, 245

2012: 40 catches for 625 yards and four touchdowns

Coach's take: “That tight end, Eric Ebron, is impressive looking. He'll be a big part of what they do next year. Really versatile.”

 

Virginia CB Demetrious Nicholson

Year: Junior

Measurables: 5-11, 185

2012: Tied for ACC lead in pass breakups with 15, added 56 tackles.

Coach's take: “He's undersized but he's a good football player. He stands out for them, seems to have good instincts. Should be an emerging player."

 

Ohio State RB Carlos Hyde

Year: Senior

Measurables: 6-0, 242

2012: 185 carries for 970 yards and 16 touchdowns.

Coach's take: “Could be a great one if he continues. Strong, powerful back with great pad level…He probably doesn't have elite speed downfield.”

 

Arizona State QB Taylor Kelly

Year: Redshirt Junior

Measurables: 6-2, 203

2012: Second in Pac-12 in passing efficiency (159.9), 67.1 completion percentage, 29 touchdown passes, nine interceptions

Coach's take: “Apparently he's becoming a leader for that team. He has that little it factor to him where he'll get it done. He probably needs to tuck it more and take more sacks instead of trying to extend a play. He's got a nice future overall.”

 

Also Noteworthy

 

*West Virginia receiver Kevin White -- “I think he can be a star for them.”

 

*Maryland WR Stefon Diggs -- "A big-time player."

 

*Virginia Tech DE Dadi Nicolas – “He's going to be a great pass rusher.”

 

*Oklahoma QB Blake Bell -- “I think he can spin it pretty good, too.”

 

 

 

As a UNC fan, it's nice to see Eric Ebron on that list. I think he will lead the ACC in receiving yards and touchdowns for a tight end next year. Ebron and Tabb will form a pretty solid tight end corp for the Heels this year.

I hate to say it, but Lyerla is an absolute monster.  Also a name that should be on this list is Nelson Agholor from USC....

Ebron is going to explode next year IMO.

 

Would love to grab him in the 2nd round
