What would you consider a good season for Ebron?

What would you consider a good season for Ebron? 



He clearly isn't going to blow up the league, with our other receiving options needing their touches ( CJ, Tate, Bush, Pettigrew, Ross, Bell, Fauria, etc).

And we know rookie receivers and TE's typically have to make more of an adjustment to the NFL than most other positions. 

Heck, even Calvin didn't completely light it up his rookie year, and we didn't as many receiving options then, as we do now.


I just hope he plays tough and smart, draws some attention away from CJ, and makes enough big plays that teams have to game plan for him by changing their safety assignments.

Realistically, I think 35-40 catches, 450 yards, 4-5 TD's would be a solid year.

Pretty much. I also want to see the guy isn't a "drop machine". That's the biggest thing I have to see.

Re: What would you consider a good season for Ebron? 


it is a good question with a lot of back and forth.

bc if we drafted him there at that first round spot if he doesn't get MORE than 40 catches on the year I will say.... wtf was he worth the first pick?

if he isn't targeted at least 4 -5 times a game I will be a little confused. Sure you gotta take what the defense gives you but with this team you have CJ being no less than double teamed???

I say if he has less than 40 catches 400 yards with a handful of tds it will be a disappointing season for ebron for sure.

64-80 catches,900-1100 yds., 8-12 TD's...not one single drop, ever. I am going to google TE's and see if there ever was a TE drafted higher. This guy should be Gronkowski, Graham and Gonzales all rolled into one. Only Mayhew and only the Lions.
Vernon Davis, Kyle Brady, Kellen Winslow Jr....there are about five more and none of them were good enough to remember.

This Ebron kid might be one of the most polarizing players on the Lions in years!!!

The effing idiot hasn't played a down and he's already running his mouth in the press about what the NFL should be doing. Shut up and establish yourself.

I'm willing to see the pick through. I want every Lion to succeed. I want to love this guy.

Just I really think if he can't step in and contribute he might of been a reach. If he is gonna see the field he needs to see targets. He needs to catch the ball.

I think it would be wrong of anyone of us to say we don't have high expectations of the guy.

I personally believe that no one has to put up monster receiving stats except Calvin. Since we are copying the Saints, the ball should be spread around to whoever is hot. If everyone is healthy, that will make them very difficult to game plan against. 

Megatron
Tate
Ebron
Pettigrew
Faria
Bush
Bell
Broyles
Ross

It's not like he was saying, "no one can cover me. I want to get paid!!"

He actually made a good point about the evolution of the position. There is a substantial difference between TE money and WR money and it makes no sense that a franchised WR should get more money than Jimmy Graham.

I understand what you're saying and usually I agree about players keeping their mouths zipped, especially the young guys. In this case, he's made a pretty simple point that happens to be correct.

There are certain TE's that are really WR's these days. Designate them as such.

Now keep your mouth shut and work your ass off, Eric.
any attempt to impersonate an actual scout in the above post has been done poorly, and should not be taken seriously by anyone

I think he's going to catch 60 passes for 750 and 5TD's.

He's going to be open.

A good season for him would be one where the team wins more than it loses.

Right, but because he said something to the media he's full of himself and already a character issue.

If Ebron wins OROTY than who gets the credit? Just curious?

70 Reps, 1500 yards & 18 TD's!

I can wish no?!

Honestly, I want more of a Jerry Rice production imho: 49 rep, 950 yards and 3 TD.... and then go break every record in the book, along with CJ, for the rest of their Lions career!!  And no injuries!!

If this dream came true the Lions would win the Super Bowl. I guarantee that!

I am hoping for 75% completions to him and he plays at least 50% of the snaps, and he must be able to chip block Peppers now that he is playing LB
