Mayock: Eric Ebron better TE prospect than 49ers' Vernon Davis

North Carolina tight end Eric Ebron certainly is confident in his abilities -- he says his size/speed mix should be "illegal" -- and NFL Media draft analyst Mike Mayock clearly is a fan.

Mayock said Ebron -- whose workouts at the NFL Scouting Combine come Saturday afternoon -- might be the "most talented tight end" in years.

Ebron has admitted that he admires San Francisco 49ers tight end Vernon Davis. Mayock said that, while Ebron isn't likely to run as fast as Davis, who turned in a 4.38 40-yard dash, he is a "more complete football player" than Davis at the same stage of their careers.

It's rare that a tight end goes in the top 10 of the draft, but Mayock said it's possible with Ebron.

Ebron measured 6-foot-4 and 250 pounds at the combine weigh-in on Friday. He also had an arm length of 33 1/4 inches.
