Lions | Eric Ebron says he's past rookie wall

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron, who has struggled with some dropped passes during training camp, said he's already hit his rookie wall. "I've already hit my rookie wall," Ebron said after practice Monday, Aug. 4. "I felt like that last week of the learning process and getting over the curve, that was it for me. Now it's about staying true to who I am and doing everything that got me here, and better." Ebron looked good in his route running Monday and caught everything thrown his way.
As a top-10 pick, you better believe the Lions have every intention of getting Ebron involved in the offense right away. However, he may be a frustrating play, and Joseph Fauria could vulture touchdowns. Ebron is a decent backup option with plenty of upside in this high-octane offense.
