Packers reportedly met with North Carolina TE Eric Ebron this weekend

According to's Matt Zenitz, the Packers met with North Carolina TE Eric Ebron this weekend. In 3 seasons with the Tar Heels, Ebron was pretty good, catching 112 passes for 1,805 yards (62 passes for 973 yards in 2013), so given their current situation it's not surprising that the Pack are looking at this guy. 

Still, I'd be shocked if Green Bay's seriously looking for a starting TE in this year's draft. I mean, Jermichael Finley will probably still be able to come back and Andrew Quarless is, of course, available, so why they would just doesn't make sense to me.

Ebron has the potential to be a great player. He's an athletic freak, and his college stats are very impressive considering he still needs a lot more coaching on route running and playing physical. He's probably going to be drafted in the Top 10, so getting him at the Packers' slot would be a steal, but he wouldn't be a lot of help in 2014 anyway. He's a great player, but it's very unlikely he'll be available when the Packers make their first round selection.
