Lions Beat: TE Eric Ebron has gotten 'progressively better'

MLive - [Full Article]

Eric Ebron wasn't sharp to open OTAs, but has gotten progressively better. That includes no drops in the last OTA that was open to the media, and then no drops on the first day of minicamp. The closest thing was a pass that was broken up at the last moment by Rashean Mathis. Other than that, Ebron caught everything thrown his way, and was a real matchup nightmare. (And despite the good practice, Ebron still stuck around to take extra balls from the JUGS machine after practice. Another indicator his questionable attitude is a thing of the past, even if the drops aren't -- yet.)

Fantasy Impact: 

Ebron turned 3.8 targets into 1.9 catches for 19 yards and 0.08 TD as a rookie. He played half the snaps, so his lack of production is somewhat alarming. Tight end is a tough position to learn as a rookie, so there is some reason for optimism given Ebron's skill set, especially since he seems to be having a good offseason.
