    Tyler Eifert

    I might catch some slack for this but I believe he is a better pro prospect than Jimmy Graham or Rob Gronkowski coming out of college... (remember they have brees and brady throwing them the ball two HOF) if there is one thing I hope we do is draft Eifert in the first. Say good bye to Carpenter kicks and hello to Red Zone TDs

    watch the film, the eye in the sky don't lie

    I won't pretend that I've watched film on either Eifert or Ertz, but I definitely won't be mad if we draft one of them with the first pick. We need game changers on offense, and while people concentrate on receivers, tight end is as big a need IMO.

    Exactly. In fact, I think an upper echelon TE will accelerate the development of RT more than any WR. A TE is a QB's security blanket. Eifert looks like he could be elite and would be a good red zone target.
    The Phins have a solid team. What they are missing are impact players on offense and defense. In the 1st rd, they need to grab the guy that has the potential to be an impact player at his respective position.
    If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.

    He's going to go in the 20's somewhere. The guy is too polished to not be a 1st round pick, especially considering how much value teams are putting into this position nowadays. A guy like Eifert is a mismatch against anyone trying to cover him. He will out jump and box out any DB and will run past any LB. I say you move back 5 or 6 picks, pick up another 2nd or 3rd, and take him in the 1st if you really want him.

    Like I said, the guy is incredibly polished for his age.

    Couldn't have said it any better and TE's only get better in the NFL because most colleges do not have TE coaches. I can't comment or speculate if ND does or not but Dan Campbell could have this guy the best TE in the league in two years..

If he manages to blow everyone away at the combine, I personally would not have any problems taking him that high and fixing the other positions with the with out 2-2nd rounders and 2-3rd rounders.
    We also have 47M$ in cap space to assist as well, I think after FA you can cross of premier receiver and lockdown cornwer/ or pass rusher

    Drop back 12 to 14 spots for only a 6th or 7th. Sorry, you do not understand draft value at all.
