In Bills rumors today, former North Carolina tight end Eric Ebron believes that the Buffalo Bills may be one possible landing spot for him come Mays' NFL Draft.
Per Curtis Crabtree of Pro Football Talk, Peter King of theMMQB.com "wrote that Ebron told a team he recently visited with that he expected the Detroit Lions to select him in next month’s NFL Draft."
When asked about this on Sirius XM NFL Radio by hosts Alex Marvez and Gil Brandt, Ebron substantiated the rumor:
“That was one of the teams,” Ebron states in Crabtree's article. “This is me quoting me. I said if I had my choice of the teams that are high upon me right now that I believe are high on me, it was the Buffalo Bills and the Detroit Lions. Those are the two teams that I believe are the highest upon me. Now are they telling the same things they are telling me to everybody else? I don’t know. But from my perspective and my point of view, those are the two teams that I believe if they could have signed me that day would have.”
The Buffalo Bills do have Scott Chandler and Lee Smith already on the roster, so drafting a tight end with the ninth overall pick may be a bit of a stretch. However, if the Bills feel that Ebron's ability is franchise tight end-worthy, they may decide to draft him anyways.
