04/30/2012 - A closer look at the Patriots' picks: Round 7/235 -- Jeremy Ebert, WR, 6-0, 195, Northwestern...A former high school quarterback, Ebert became a dangerous weapon as a receiver and rusher in college. He could wind up as a valuable contributor on special team as a rookie. - The Sports Xchange

03/21/2012 - 03/20/12 NFL DRAFT SCOUT RISER: Jeremy Ebert, WR, Northwestern: For a player with 173 career receptions in college, Ebert is far from a household name and hasn't received much attention in the pre-draft process. But after an impressive on-campus workout during Northwestern's pro day, perhaps that will change. Ebert, who didn't receive an invitation to the NFL Combine, ran his 40-yard dashes in the high 4.3's and low 4.4's, showing better-than-expected speed for the 20 teams in attendance. He also impressed with his numbers in the other drills, including the vertical jump (33 inches), broad jump (9'4) and short shuttle (4.15). Also, Ebert's time of 6.70 in the 3-cone drill would have ranked him third among all receivers at the Combine. He is a reliable possession receiver with soft hands and very good focus to make challenging catches. Ebert tracks the ball well and shows savvy and toughness on the field that shows up on tape. He is still widely viewed as a late round player or priority free agent, but he is moving up draft boards for most teams. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com

03/08/2012 - Tight end Drake Dunsmore drew the attention for Northwestern at the NFL combine last month. At the school's pro day Thursday in Evanston, it was his roommate's turn. Wide receiver Jeremy Ebert, who was not invited to the combine, worked out as if he should have been. Ebert ran a 4.38-second 40-yard dash, bench pressed 225 pounds 16 times and looked smooth in his route running and receiving. The performance had scouts buzzing and should help Ebert's draft stock. "Not getting invited to the combine kind of hurt, but I showed up today and showed them what I can do," Ebert said. "I've been told it's a very deep group of inside slot receivers this year," Northwestern coach Pat Fitzgerald said. "I would put him up there with any of them. We think he's faster than maybe some people think based on watching tape." In positional work, Ebert was on the receiving end of a beautiful 50-yard bomb from Dan Persa. Ebert caught the pass with his back to the quarterback and his arms outstretched. Also working out were 25 non-Northwestern athletes with local ties. Among the standouts were Columbia offensive tackle Jeff Adams (Lyons), Northern Illinois linebacker/safety Alex Kube (Cary-Grove), New Mexico linebacker Carmen Messina (Addison Trail), Ashland defensive tackle Jeris Pendleton (Dunbar, Joliet Junior College), Southern Illinois offensive tackle David Pickard (Oak Park) and Saint Xavier linebacker Michael Prosser (Rockton Hononegah). Representatives from 25 teams attended, including Bears pro scout James Kirkland. - Dan Pompei, The Chicago Tribune

12/31/2011 - PLAYERS TO WATCH: WR Jeremy Ebert's production late in the season has been key to the Wildcats landing a bowl game. Ebert is a player capable of stretching the Aggies defense with his penchant for big plays, both short and long. He can take a short pass and make big gains with his athletic ability and speed. Ebert owns a team-leading 71 catches for 1,025 yards and 11 touchdown receptions. - The Sports Xchange

11/12/2011 - Dan Persa threw for a career-high 372 yards, Jeremy Ebert set a personal best with 208 receiving yards and Northwestern beat Rice 28-6 on Saturday. Persa also matched a career high with four touchdown passes, none more spectacular than a 90-yarder to Ebert in the first quarter. It was the second-longest completion in school history, and it set the tone as the Wildcats built a 21-0 halftime lead on the way to their third straight victory. Northwestern suffered no letdown after a stunning 28-25 victory last weekend at then-No. 9 Nebraska. Instead, the Wildcats (5-5) pulled back to .500-no small feat for a team that dropped five in a row before this run. - AP Sports

11/06/2011 - WEEK 10 WALTER CAMP NATIONAL OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Jeremy Ebert, Northwestern: Northwestern wide receiver Jeremy Ebert caught six passes for 147 yards, including an 81-yard touchdown, as the Wildcats defeated 10th-ranked Nebraska, 28-25. Ebert's 81-yard scoring reception was the second-longest in school history. With the victory, the Wildcats improved to 4-5, 2-4 in the Big Ten. - Walter Camp Award

09/29/2011 - SCOUTING THE OFFENSE: With Dan Persa expected to be back at the controls this week, Northwestern regains the ability to attack vertically as well as horizontally. Sophomore QB Kain Colter was excellent on the run, but his arm isn't as strong or as accurate as the nation's reigning completion-percentage champ. Persa's return allows NU's deep receiving corps to have a bigger impact on games. Expect Jeremy Ebert, who scored twice against Army, and senior superback Drake Dunsmore to catch passes early and often in the Wildcats' spread offense. PLAYERS TO WATCH: WR Jeremy Ebert - After getting shut out against Eastern Illinois, Ebert became Northwestern's primary playmaker against Army with 6 catches for 108 yards and 2 TDs. He might be the most excited about Persa's return. During their 10 games together last year, Ebert caught 54 passes for 849 yards and 8 TDs. In the 3 games without Persa last year, Ebert caught 8 passes for 104 yards and no scores. - The Sports Xchange
