Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron said he expects to line up in the slot 50 percent of the time this season. He said he expects to be on the line with his hand in the ground 40 percent of the time and in the backfield 10 percent of the time.
Lining up in wide receiver positions is part of what makes New Orleans Saints TE Jimmy Graham so effective in the passing game. Ebron has a similar ceiling, but growing pains should be expected. Ebron is a TE2 with upside.
