Ebner (5’11”, 206 lbs) was a do-it-all back for Baylor as a runner, receiver out of the backfield, and returner, but he has relatively low mileage with just 470 touches on offense in his 5 years with the Bears, and another 75 in the return game.
He had 3 kickoff returns for touchdowns, and on offense he had 20 total TDs on 1,690 rushing yards, and 127 receptions for 1,515. He’ll give Chicago another option on special teams and be in the mix for a depth spot on offense too.
“He’s the value back in the draft for me because he can do so many things that it helps open up a roster spot for another legitimate talent and not just a specialist.” — Personnel executive for AFC team via NFL.com.
