Lions host Eric Ebron for pre-draft visit, schedule meeting with Jadeveon Clowney

Bob Donnan-USA TODAY Sports

The Detroit Lions are hosting tight end Eric Ebron on Monday for a pre-draft visit, and defensive end Jadeveon Clowney is reportedly set to stop by at a later date.

The Detroit Lions have kicked off the week by hosting another potential first-round pick for a pre-draft visit. Specifically, North Carolina tight end Eric Ebron is visiting the Lions on Monday, according to Dave Birkett, giving them a chance to take a closer look at the draft's top tight end.

Last season at North Carolina, Ebron caught 62 passes for 973 yards and 3 touchdowns. He had 40 catches for 625 yards and 4 touchdowns in 2012, and he decided to declare early for the draft after this past season. There is a pretty strong consensus that he's the top tight end in the draft, but is he worthy of the 10th overall pick? It's tough to say, but I'm sure that's something the Lions are evaluating with him visiting.

In other pre-draft visit news, South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney is going to meet with the Lions at some point, according to Ian Rapoport. Clowney could be the top pick in the entire draft, and there is no chance he will be there at 10. If Clowney doesn't go to the Houston Texans first overall, though, perhaps the Lions could give some thought to trading up for him instead of Clemson wide receiver Sammy Watkins.
