With the 28th pick in the seventh round of the 2012 NFL Draft, the New England Patriots have selected wide receiver, Jeremy Ebert, from Northwestern.
ESPN Scouts Inc., ranked Ebert as the 143rd best receiver prospect. Ebert was not invited to the NFL combine, but put up nice numbers at his pro day. He recorded a 4.38 40 yard dash, a 4.15 20 yard shuttle, a 33 inch vertical and 16 reps at 225 on the bench.
Here's what NFLDraftScout.com has to say about him:
He is a reliable possession receiver with soft hands and very good focus to make challenging catches. Ebert tracks the ball well and shows savvy and toughness on the field that shows up on tape. He is still widely viewed as a late round player or priority free agent, but he is moving up draft boards for most teams.
