Draft Scout News
09/04/14 - TE Eric Ebron said he's going to treat his NFL debut like any other game. "I have nothing to prove to nobody. Everybody has their own opinion about me or a situation or the draft, whatever. I have nothing to prove to nobody. I just go out there and play my game."
08/07/14 - TE Eric Ebron missed practice Wednesday and Thursday with an undisclosed injury. Ebron declined to say what body part was ailing him after practice Thursday. Caldwell said it's a minor injury, but it's unlikely Ebron plays Saturday.
07/29/14 - TE Eric Ebron had a couple more drops Tuesday. Ebron has said the playbook is difficult, and despite the drops, he's starting to feel more comfortable. "That's all I've got to work on is keep it cool," he said. "Now that I've got an understanding of the playbook, now it's about running routes, catching the ball and precision."
05/12/14 - Lions have a plan for No. 10 overall pick Ebron..."We needed good players," Mayhew said. "It was a go-anywhere draft for us. But our defense was right in the middle of the pack - 15th in points allowed. Our offense was 13th in points scored. I think there was a perception that there was a huge gap between offense and defense. I don't think there was a big gap. This is a guy who will help us win games." Ebron was asked what he felt he does best on the field and how his presence will impact Calvin Johnson. "I'm different," he said. "I bring a different style of play and I demand a little bit of attention when I'm on the field. That's what I do best. I just play with heart, passion and everything I can do to help my team, and that's something no one can take away from me. "We'll give other teams hell, I hope. Enough hell so that we win the game." - The Sports Xchange
05/12/14 - Lions have a plan for No. 10 overall pick Ebron...Caldwell said Ebron would also create matchup issues for strong safeties, as well as open the field up for receivers Calvin Johnson and Golden Tate. "Defenses only have so many resources to commit to your weapons," Lombardi said. The Lions spent considerable time with Ebron in the pre-draft process. Besides the combine, Senior Bowl and the visit to Allen Park, tight ends coach Ron Prince also spent a couple of days with him in North Carolina. "We got to know him throughout the draft process to be a man of great quality, a hardworking guy who enjoys playing the game -- he has great passion for the game," Caldwell said. "I am sure you will find him to be a fun-loving guy who has a great desire to excel in terms of football.
"He is a tremendous physical talent obviously. He is a guy who can run for his size, the matchups will be a bit unusual in that sense. Without question we anticipate that he is going to be a guy that comes and contributes early for us." Mayhew made it clear throughout the draft process that he wasn't going to reach to fill a need with the 10th pick, that he was going to let his board determine the pick. Ebron, he said, was far and away the best player on the board. - The Sports Xchange
