Tight End

The Lions Tight Ends will remain the same. Detroit was really hampered with injuries in this specific group. Every one of the Lions tight ends missed time and had to resort to giving Kellen Davis quality snaps.

The need for Eric Ebron to have a good season is huge, especially in the offense the Lions run. The Lions will get Fauria involved in the mix, Pettigrew too. However with where Ebron was drafted the time for him to show significant improvement is now. Detroit would benefit greatly for a guy to open up the middle of the field.

Ebron can and needs to be that guy.

Better, Same or Worse?
