Eric Ebron, Tight End
It's Eric Ebron's last collegiate game before he bolts for the NFL draft. He's as athletic as a tight end can get, and he uses his long 6'4" frame to catch just about anything in sight. He had his best season this year, hauling in 55 receptions for 895 yards and three touchdowns.
While Ebron is dangerous in the red zone, he's also quite quick for a big guy and is capable of making plays after the catch just about anywhere on the field. The junior is a mismatch against any defense and that will once again be the case against Cincinnati.
Kareem Martin, Defensive Lineman
Kareem Martin is another player who is generating some NFL draft buzz. And for good reason, as he led the Tar Heels with 20 tackles for loss and 11 sacks. He also finished third on the team with 78 tackles, while adding 14 quarterback hurries and three forced fumbles for good measure.
Needless to say, he's a handful for offensive linemen. Martin has a quick first step and can line up on either side of the defensive line. Martin will impact this game in one way or another.
NFL Prospects (Besides Ebron and Martin)
James Hurst, OL: One of the top tackles in the country, Hurst has the size and athleticism to be one of the first offensive linemen selected in the upcoming draft.
Tre Boston, S: Boston is one of the better coverage safeties in college football and has a knack for making the big play. He'll likely be selected in the middle rounds.
