2014

The 10th pick in this year's NFL Draft, Ebron finds himself in an advantageous situation. The Lions hired former Saints quarterbacks coach Joe Lombardi as offensive coordinator, and he plans to install a Saints-style passing attack with Ebron used like the versatile Jimmy Graham -- split wide, in the slot or in tight. The Lions, who also signed wideout Golden Tate, have a lot of receiving options, but Ebron is expected to dominate the tight-end targets. Veteran Brandon Pettigrew likely be used more as a blocker, and the 6-7 Joseph Fauria, who scored seven touchdowns last season, figures to share some of his 14 red-zone looks with Ebron. Both could be used together in the red zone. At 6-4, 245, with 4.6 speed, Ebron figures to be a mismatch down the seam, guaranteed to see single coverage with Calvin Johnson on the field. He is an excellent route runner -- the majority of his receptions at North Carolina last year came lined up as a wide receiver -- and is good after the catch. The only knock on him is his hands, which are just average, but the Lions believe he will improve. Even so, he still broke Vernon Davis' ACC record for receiving yards last year.
