If former North Carolina State tight end Eric Ebron had his way, he would be staying in New York after draft day and headed to training camp with Tom Coughlan, Eli Manning and the rest of the Giants organization.

The top tight end available in 2014 sat down with Jack Jorgensen of FanSided and spoke about the upcoming draft.

Jorgensen asked Ebron if there was any team he would especially like to play for in pro football and the 20-year old gave a surprisingly honest answer, detailing exactly who it is his dream is to play for.

"To be honest, I’ll be happy when any team grabs me. But, having been a fan of them since I was young, it would be an honor to play for the New York Giants," Ebron said.

The Giants currently own the 12th pick in the draft. Ebron however is expected to go 18th to their cross town rivals the Jets so to be taken by the blue half of New York would need quite a jump.

But Ebron is definitely a talented playmaker and has the physical attributes to back up his skill.

Ebron is a true third-down threat for any team, as well as a matchup nightmare all over the field, measuring in at 6"4 and weighing a hefty 245 pounds.

Ebron brought his production up to another level in 2013, establishing school records for single-season receptions (62), single-season receiving yards (973), career receptions (112) and career receiving yards (1,805) at his position.
