10. Eric Ebron

The first tight end taken in the NFL draft played 18 snaps in his Monday Night Football debut against the Giants, serving at the No. 3 tight end behind incumbent Brandon Pettigrew. He was targeted twice, but held without a catch.

Pettigrew saw 58 percent of the Lions’ offensive snaps and Joseph Fauria received 29 snaps. Reports throughout the preseason indicated Ebron was coming along slowly, and until he progresses he probably won’t have much of a role in the offense.
