My thoughts on the Detroit Lions selecting Eric Ebron in the first round of the NFL Draft

My column. Why Eric Ebron and the Lions are a perfect fit:

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.

Hard to believe we couldn't find any trade bait

Pat, don't mind the pick. Will we see two TEs involved in the offense more often?
