That pick didn’t please too many Lions fans and it didn’t help with Ebron only having 25 catches for 248 yards and only one touchdown.

I will say that Ebron is a dynamite blocker but that isn’t exactly the production you look for out of your tenth overall pick.

Sports Illustrated re-drafted the 2014 draft and who they had the Lions selecting might surprise you a little bit.

With the tenth overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, Sports Illustrated has the Detroit Lions taking left tackle Taylor Lewan from the University of Michigan.

It’s a little shocking to me. I thought they would have had the Lions taking Odell Beckham Jr., but instead they had Beckham going second overall to the St. Louis Rams.

Here is what SI had to say about the Lions pick:

Taking Ebron so high was a poke in the eye for a resurgent Lions team, as the rookie caught just 25 passes for 248 yards and one touchdown. He was inconsistent catching the ball and looked slower on the field than his college tape suggested. Better here to take advantage of a local guy in Lewan, who turned out to be the best overall rookie tackle and would provide the Lions a measure of stability at that important position for years to come.
