Lions Beat: TE Eric Ebron 'coming along'

ESPN - [Full Article]

Lions TE Eric Ebron is coming along.

He had a rough first week of camp, dropping passes and looking lost at times. Since then, the first-round pick has been much better both with ball security and route running.

He has probably the most challenging camp of any player on the team as he’s a rookie and lining up in four different spots within the Lions offense. He is making progress.

Fantasy Impact: 

Ebron lined up just about anywhere and everywhere in the Lions first preseason game. It's a bit of a crowded position with Brandon Pettigrew and TD machine Joseph Fauria still on the team. But we still rank Ebron 20th on our list so we think he has potential. The Lions want him to be their Jimmy Graham but sometimes it takes a while for TEs to step into a big role like that.
