Hartselle Tigers (15-0) 5-A State Champ
Keep in mind that Ebron is such a tremendous athlete, that his practice time was split as a sophomore because he played both sides of the ball. The coaches had him playing DE on defense to rush the passer in addition to playing tight end. There's no way to know this without watching his sophomore tape. This is the first year he's really been able to focus on playing the TE position. He has exceptional upside to tap into once he's practicing his craft everyday for 8 hours a day.... as opposed to the 20 hours per week that college kids are allowed to practice. The best tight ends in the NFL were typically unproductive, inexperienced, injured, and extremely flawed coming out of college. But they were athletic mismatches.
The transition among the TE position from college to the NFL is all about upside. There's very little on film of college TE's nowdays that you can project to the next level. Athletic upside and work ethic are the two most important qualities that I'd look for in a tight end now.
