My thoughts on the Detroit Lions selecting Eric Ebron in the first round of the NFL Draft
I like the pick for the Lions. I called it long before the draft. I have talked to many fans the last couple weeks, who are upset because they see him as a "tight end," but this kid is different. He gives the Lions a better weapon as a receiver than they could have found from any player not named Sammy Watkins in this draft. He fits their offense perfectly. Remember how important a role the tight end played in the offenses at Indy when head coach Jim Caldwell was there, and at New Orleans when O-coordinator Joe Lombardi was there. Ebron is an extraordinary talent will help the Lions immensely.
