    GM Why Tyler Eifert HAS to be our pick at #12

    Our redzone offense has been awful. A young quarterback's best friend is not a running game, it is a security blanket at TE. The greatest thing about Eifert is that he is exactly that, a security blanket. At 6'5 1/2 and his long arms he has such a big catch radius to put the ball. He just said the one player he compares himself to Jimmy Graham and I definitely see the comparison. They are both OUTSTANDING at "Boxing out defenders and grabbing the rebound at the HIGHEST POINT" ohh wait.. they're not playing basketball anymore.......... But the way they can shield off defenders and high point the football is the reason why Jimmy is the best TE in the league and Eifert is the best TE in the draft. He is a GREAT REDZONE THREAT and will instantly improve our redzone offense.Although he is no Gronkowski when it comes to blocking, he has improved every year and half of blocking at TE is effort which he shows in the ruun game....He is a very crisp route runner, lining up at times as an X receiver and running dig routes... Very smooth in his breaks for being 6'5 +.. My one concern with him is his speed. He just said a high time for him Saturday will be a 4.5.. He looks more along the lines of a 4.7.. That is what made me skeptical about taking him at #12 but his ability to box out defenders and go get the football is what has swayed my opinion. With 2-3 receivers next year (hopefully Wallace, and Greg) and reggie bush expected to have a way bigger role in the pass game as a 3rd down back and possibly (and hopefully) as a slot and outside receiver.. With the emergence of Miller and Wallace and Greg on the outside, Eifert down the middle, and Reggie and Bess underneath we have the POTENTIAL
    to field a top 5 offense next year...Ireland make it happen!!!

    wrong.

    Tyler Eifert would have far more impact on this team day one than corrderelle patterson any way you slice it. People live in fantasy world. going to bed every night thinking one guy is the end all say all. scary if you ask me.

    FA: Dmitiri Patterson (Vet min.w/ incentives)
    1. Zach Martin OT
    2. Bishop Sankey RB
    3. Brandon Thomas G/T
    4. Max Bullough ILB
    5. Crockett Gilmore TE

    You tell me what makes him so special? Because I have not been convinced that this guy even knows the route tree. The media have been selling this guy with nothing to really back it up except "look at his tape" this guy is freakish. Well, I watched the tape and what I noticed is he is a kick returner slash reverse/end around guy and he did most of those vs. Troy, Marshall, and Vande and couple others.

    I am not saying this kid couldnt eventually be somebody, but there is actually no tape that proves he can come right in and know this offense and do anything special in it from day one. There is no proof. Its all been talk. hype. media selling everything they dont even know about. They watch his moves in the open field and gawk. But thats not how it happens in the NFL. If he is a threat as a returner, they either kick away, deep, or short where they can nail him early, which is what the league did with Ted Ginn. Ginn was talked about in much the same way coming out. Patterson is bigger, and less likely to hit the ground, in fact, he may shake a couple of guys out of their shorts, but in the end to me, I didnt see much on tape that showed he was an everydown WR. And its a fact that he didnt show much vs. Alabama and other big teams in the SEC. He had a big end around play vs. GEorgia. Once again, an end around. That crap doesnt work in the pros. At least not on a weekly basis or a bi-weekly basis.

    Not happening!! There is no way they stay at 12 and draft someone who could potentially drop to the 2nd round. If he is there with our first pick in round 2 great but I don't see it happening so if we drop back and acquire some additional picks I'd be ok w/ it.


    Many other positions of need to address I just don't think TE is the #1 position to fill regardless of what we do in FA.
    LETS GO FINS!!!
