Report: Eric Ebron could line up in slot most of the time
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/22/14) The Lions will run a lot of two-tight end sets with rookie Eric Ebron lining up in the slot "perhaps as much as two-thirds of the time," reports MLive.com. Brandon Pettigrew will be the in-line blocker.

New offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi, formerly of the Saints, "saw how a pass-catching tight end such as Jimmy Graham could dice up a defense, and that is what the Lions have planned for Ebron," the paper said.

Eric Ebron lining up 'everywhere'
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/1/14) Lions rookie tight end Eric Ebron says he's lining up "everywhere" and while the learning process has been tough for him, he's aware of how important it is for him to learn the playbook. 

"It's crazy," Ebron told the Ross Tucker Football Podcast about his assignments. "I've been everywhere, and that's what's killing me because I'm used to either learning the Y or learning the A, which we had at North Carolina. But now it's the Y, the F, the Z. ... It's really hard, but I'm not going to say I'm not enjoying it or not having fun doing it because I know the more I learn the faster I'm able to play, the faster I'm able to produce. I love it."

Ebron also predicted that he would line up in the slot 50 percent of the time, with his hand on the ground 30 percent of the time, out wide 15 percent of the time and in the backfield 5 percent of the time. 

Eric Ebron following Jimmy Graham case closely
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(6/25/14) Like Jimmy Graham, Lions rookie Eric Ebron doesn't want to be classified as a tight end. He's following Graham's arbitration case closely.

"I believe we should start either being called a hybrid or joker," Ebron told the Detroit Free Press. "I think the ‘tight end’ word or name is traditional, but it’s overplayed. It’s overplayed into what people assume a tight end is."

Ebron said the "joker" classification should be used for a player who's "big and strong enough to block on the offensive line, but who’s fast and shifty enough to be a receiver."

Ebron praised Graham for taking a stand and said it will benefit all the league's "tight ends."

Stafford calls Eric Ebron a 'big-time talent'
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/20/14) Lions rookie tight end Eric Ebron didn't have the best offseason workouts, but the potential is there reports mlive.com.

"He's super athletic and can get in and out of cuts," quarterback Matthew Stafford said. "He's raw, he's young, he's got to learn the NFL game like every rookie does. But there's definitely flashes of big-time talent."

Ebron dealt with some drops and struggled to learn the offense, but he felt more comfortable as the offseason program went along.

"It's lovely now," Ebron said. "Figuring out the offense. It'll never be 100 percent, but at least knowing what to do, where to lineup, where to be. Now I can do the things that got me here. I'm starting to earn a lot more respect. I'm starting to produce a lot more, and I'm starting to get a lot more reps."

Ebron spent most of OTAs and minicamp working with the second unit, but that will inevitably change if he continues to learn heading into training camp.

Lions sign rookie Eric Ebron
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/13/14) The Lions have signed first-round draft pick Eric Ebron, reports mlive.com.

While the financial terms of Ebron's contract are still unknown, the final numbers should check in slightly higher than the four-year, $12.2 million deal signed by Tennessee Titans guard Chance Warmack last year. Warmack and Ebron were both selected No. 10 in their respective draft classes.

Ebron is expected to start for the Lions as a rookie.
