Detroit Lions rookie tight end Eric Ebron had some early training camp struggles, but has seemed to turn things around.

Why?

The media scrutinizing him for his dropped passes has changed his perception of how he views the media and his responsibilities on the field.

“I love it” Ebron said, per the Detroit Free Press. “I love when people talk about me — that way when I prove you wrong it looks bad on you not me.

“I love it. Every bit of it.”

It’s been a challenging training camp for the rookie, but he’s already gone through the roughest parts of camp in his mind and he’s ready to move forward.

“I’ve already hit my rookie wall,” he said. “I felt like that last week of the learning process and getting over the curve, that was it for me. Now it’s about staying true to who I am and doing everything that got me here, and better.”

Ebron has a huge opportunity to prove himself in an offense led by quarterback Matthew Stafford, running back Reggie Bush and wide receiver Calvin Johnson.

We’ll see what happens in his rookie season. It’ll be fun to watch.
