North Carolina tight end Eric Ebron is scheduled to visit the Ravens prior to the NFL draft, according to his agent.

Ebron also has visits with the Carolina Panthers, Detroit Lions and the Buffalo Bills.

Ebron also met with the Ravens at the NFL scouting combine.

This visit is one of the Ravens' allotted top 30 official visits.

He's been linked to the Ravens in several mock drafts. The Ravens hold the 17th overall pick of the first round.

Ebron was an All-American selection last season who caught 62 passes for 973 yards and three touchdowns.

"Every team wants a complete tight end, an all-purpose tight end, not just one who can just run down the seam and catch passes," Ebron said at the NFL scouting combine. "They want a guy who can block, too. I tell them I've been working hard at it. I'm not bad at it like everyone thinks. What makes me different is who I am, my style of play. I play fast. I'm a little bit faster than most."
