UNC's Ebron proposes on Empire State Building before NFL Draft

Posted May 8

Eric Ebron (85) after the UNC vs. NC State game on November 2, 2013 in Raleigh, North Carolina.

One way to keep your mind off of the anticipation that comes with being a probable first-round NFL draft pick is to go sight-seeing with your girlfriend. North Carolina’s Eric Ebron took that to a whole different level Thursday when he proposed to Tar Heels basketball player Brittany Rountree on top of the Empire State Building.

In the awkward exchange between Ebron and Rountree with a host of friends around, the tight end is visibly nervous, prompting her to ask, “Why are you asking so weird.”

Eventually, after some hesitation, repeated sentences and a prolonged hug, Ebron dropped to a knee and popped the question. The answer, of course, was yes.
