For those who are drafted this weekend, they almost assuredly will have a grand story to tell about where they were, what they were doing and who they were with when they heard their name announced. Sounds like Eric Ebron's fiancee also will have a pretty cool tale to tell.

According to Fox Sports' Peter Schrager, Ebron, the former North Carolina tight end, proposed to his girlfriend on top of the Empire State Building on Thursday just a few hours before the first round of the draft commenced.

Visual proof here.

Pretty cool idea, no?

And you have to figure no matter what happens Thursday night, very little in Ebron's future life will top what he experienced Thursday afternoon.
