In today’s column by Peter King at, King relayed a note about North Carolina tight end Eric Ebron, who is one of the top tight end prospects of this year’s draft class.

King wrote that Ebron told a team he recently visited with that he expected the Detroit Lions to select him in next month’s NFL Draft.

In an interview with Alex Marvez and Gil Brandt on Sirius XM NFL Radio, Ebron was asked if that was an accurate statement that he expects to be drafted by the Lions.

“That was one of the teams,” Ebron said. “This is me quoting me. I said if I had my choice of the teams that are high upon me right now that I believe are high on me, it was the Buffalo Bills and the Detroit Lions. Those are the two teams that I believe are the highest upon me.
