Notes:

Played for the U.S. Under-19 and Under-20 rugby teams (two-time Rugby World Cup MVP) as an Ohio prep and went to Ohio State as a club rugby player. Father, Jeff, was killed defending his business in a robbery in 2008. Nate walked on to the football team in 2009 and played 12 games, recording seven special-teams tackles without a pass breakup or interception. Did not play against Oregon. Played 12 games in ’10 and tallied 12-0-0. Did not play against Purdue. Played 12 games in ’11 and notched 11-1-1. Did not play against Penn State.

Summary:

An elite rugby player, Ebner did not play football in high school, instead competing internationally on the pitch. Walked on at Ohio State, earning a scholarship and the respect of his teammates by excelling on special teams. Races down the field like a bat out of hell and hunts returners like a heat-seeking missile. Has been a dedicated workout enthusiast his whole life and it showed at pro day — bench-pressed 225 pounds 23 times and ran the 60-yard shuttle in 10.99 seconds, illustrating his conditioning level.  Also recorded surprising athletic numbers, including a 39-inch vertical leap, broad jump of 10 feet 8 inches, short-shuttle time of 4.04 seconds and a 3-cone time of 6.59 seconds. Square-jawed, mentally tough, competitive overachiever with a wedge buster’s mentality (relishes contact) who will be given the opportunity to carve a niche as a special-teams demon. Has leadership traits and is the type you root for.
