Chapel Hill, NC (SportsNetwork.com) - North Carolina tight end Eric Ebron has chosen to enter the 2014 NFL Draft following UNC's bowl game.

Ebron leads the Tar Heels with 50 receptions for 774 yards and three touchdowns. He holds the UNC single-season and career records for catches and receiving yards by a tight end.

Ebron set career-highs with eight catches for 199 yards in an Oct. 17 game against Miami-Florida.

"I've had a great time in Chapel Hill and I appreciate everything Coach Fedora and the coaching staff has done for me," said Ebron. "Coming to Carolina allowed me to develop as both a person and a football player. It was one of the best decisions I've ever made. I look forward to finishing the season with my teammates and then moving on to the next level."

The junior will skip his final year of eligibility. A native of Greensboro, N.C., Ebron is a semifinalist for the John Mackey Award, which is presented to the nation's top tight end.
