Ebron Hoping to Build on Strong 2015 Campaign
Ebron's role has expanded since the Lions selected him with the No. 10 overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft.
Though he was utilized somewhat sparingly as a rookie, Ebron seemingly began to break out of his shell last season with 47 receptions for 537 yards and five touchdowns. Many expected a big leap from him in 2016, the first season after Calvin Johnson's retirement.
Detroit signed a pair of wide receivers in Marvin Jones and Anquan Boldin this offseason, but Ebron brings another dimension to the table with his speed, athleticism and ability to stretch the field.
If Ebron misses time during the course of the season, veteran Brandon Pettigrew would likely see the bulk of the action at tight end. Pettigrew is on the physically unable to perform list, though, which leaves Matthew Mulligan and Adam Fuehne as the Lions' top two active tight ends.
Detroit can count on the wideout triumvirate of Golden Tate, Jones and Boldin, and a pair of strong pass-catching running backs in Theo Riddick and Ameer Abdullah could see increased action in the passing game, too.
