2014 NFL Draft: Lions Pick Tenth, Pull a Shocker With Ebron
The Lions pulled a rather odd pick here by drafting the talented Eric Ebron, TE from North Carolina. Ebron plays like a WR, and compares to Vernon Davis at this stage. He has great hands, runs well, and is one of the better athletes in the draft. The pick confuses me, because the Lions already have Joe Fauria and Brandon Pettigrew. You can't play them all, so the TE competition should be intense in camp. I would have gone in another direction here. Good player, but strange selection.
