Detroit Lions tight end Eric Ebron turned some heads on Day 1 of training camp, and not because he was busy dropping passes left and right. Instead, he turned heads with what multiple people described as the "catch of the day."

Ebron with the catch of the day so far. Went over Tulloch full extension down the middle from Stafford.— Tim Twentyman (@ttwentyman) August 3, 2015
Eric Ebron just hauled in the catch of the day, stretching over perfect coverage for a Stafford bullet— Kyle Meinke (@kmeinke) August 3, 2015

Fellow tight end Joseph Fauria also got in on the action with a nice catch of his own (and some gyrating).
Eric Ebron and Joseph Fauria with back-to-back nice catches over the middle. Fauria, of course, ran to end zone and started dancing. #Lions— Michael Rothstein (@mikerothstein) August 3, 2015
We have our first Joseph Fauria gyration of training camp.— Josh Katzenstein (@jkatzenstein) August 3, 2015
If the Lions' tight ends keep making plays like this, Matthew Stafford will be a very happy quarterback.
