With the Cleveland Browns, Buffalo Bills and New York Jets all seeking help at the position, ESPN’s Adam Schefter believes Notre Dame Fighting Irish tight end Tyler Eifert may be a top-10 selection in tonight’s NFL Draft.
The 22-year-old Eifert, who ran the 40-yard dash in 4.68 seconds, caught 140 passes for 1,840 yards and 11 touchdowns in 37 games as an Irishman.
As the most statistically productive tight end in the history of Notre Dame, the 6-foot-6, 250 pound Eifert should thrive as a professional.
A solid blocker with good footwork and physicality, Eifert has the wheels to outrun defenders in the secondary and snag poor throws by adjusting to the pigskin.
Ultimately, no matter where the former South Bend resident is relocated to, Tyler Eifert will compete well enough to earn NFL paychecks for many seasons.by
