Former U20 standout Nate Ebner was selected in 197th overall pick (sixth round) in the 2012 NFL Draft by the New England Patriots.

Ebner was a special teams star and a reserve safety for the Ohio State Buckeyes during his senior season, and he turned heads at his pro day running a 4.48 40-yard dash and doing well in the three-cone drill.

Ebner is the second safety the Patriots selected in this draft, as they took Tavon Wilson out of Illinois in the second round.
