Tight End: Eric Ebron (18th TE)
Flex: Ryan Taylor (Not ranked)

The ninth pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, Eric Ebron, becomes our tight end for the UNC fantasy football team. Ebron is an actual sleeper pick by some experts, so I would say this is a good pick for our team. He will overlooked by the opposing defenses with Calvin Johnson and Reggie Bush taking all the defenses attention. Maybe Ebron sneaks in and catches a few touchdowns for us.

Ryan Taylor is the Packer’s third string tight end. That’s not ideal for our flex player, but we can make it work. Taylor is a real success story for the Tar Heel football program. Taylor played mostly special teams and some tight end in his career at Carolina, catching two touchdowns his senior year in Chapel Hill. A seventh round draft pick, Taylor has kept his roster spot with Green Bay and been a solid contributor to the team for the last three seasons. We are hoping he can be a solid contributor to our fantasy team as well.
