Joseph Fauria flashes at Detroit Lions' rookie minicamp

Tight end Joseph Fauria, an undrafted free agent who played at UCLA, flashed during Saturday’s rookie minicamp workout.

 Fauria is 6-foot-7 so it’s hard to miss him. He led the Bruins with a dozen touchdown catches in 2012. 

“From practice today you could see a lot of that carry over, a lot of times he was covered, but he was still open because he was so long and has such a big catching radius,’’ Schwartz said. “He has very soft hands for a big guy, there’s things he needs to work on — being more precise with routes, blocking and things like that — but he can certainly flash in the passing game.’’

 Fauria, who wears No. 47,  is one of two tight ends at this weekend’s camp. The other is seventh-round pick Michael Williams out of Alabama who is 6-foot-6.

The three-day rookie minicamp wraps up on Sunday. It is not open to the public.
