Eric Ebron: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

The Lions selected Ebron in the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft, 10th overall.

Finally, a selection that isn't shocking. The Lions needed a big, athletic pass catcher to provide a red-zone receiving threat opposite Calvin Johnson, and at 6-foot-4, 250 pounds with WR speed, Ebron fits that bill perfectly. In a pass-happy offense with plenty of targets to go around after Johnson and Golden Tate, Ebron could make an immediate fantasy impact if he earns a healthy play count right away.
Ebron ran the 40-yard dash in 4.60 seconds at the NFL Combine.

Ebron said at the NFL Combine on Thursday that he will run the 40-yard dash faster than former North Carolina teammate Gio Bernard did in 2013, Sports Illustrated's Chris Burke reports.

Ebron, a junior tight end from North Carolina, will enter the 2014 NFL Draft.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Ebron is an athletic pass-catching tight end who should be in a fair amount of demand, as athletic tight ends like Jimmy Graham, Julius Thomas, Jordan Reed, Jordan Cameron and Ladarius Green make trouble for defenses. Regularly mentioned as a first-round target due to his athleticism and ability to pressure defenses down the middle of the field, he'll still have questions to answer about his hands. Ebron showed a worrisome tendency to drop passes at North Carolina, which makes Jermichael Finley the obvious comparison. Although he's largely billed as a pass-catching specialist, Ebron does show effort and interest as a blocker and might develop into a surprisingly capable one. We don't like Ebron as much as Texas Tech's Jace Amaro, who might also declare for the 2014 draft. Amaro played almost exclusively as a slot receiver and therefore isn't as tested of a blocker as Ebron, but he shows faster feet and better hands. As he heads into his final regular season game with the Tar Heels, Ebron has 50 catches for 774 yards and three touchdowns in 11 games this year. He should be a top-40 pick.
