    Why Eifert?

    I don't get the push by fans for TE. Just not a position of need after signing Keller. Right now we have greater positions of need like offensive line, Corner, Safety, and more pass rush. This is not a knock on the guy just don't see using a pick this high on this position. If Tannehill doesn't have time to throw then it really won't matter who is on the receiving end.

    Fans are thinking Eifert could be a dominant TE, like a Gronkowski or Graham. Keller, while a very athletic and capable TE, is kind of a "regular" TE compared to this new breed of "beast" TE. Also he'd be a bona fide red zone threat, something we're not rich in.

    That being said, we do have other more pressing needs, I agree. But if you have a chance to grab an elite player vs. good player at a position of need, it's best not to pass up the elite guy (IMHO). I'll be satisfied if Eifert is the pick but won't be devastated if he's not.

    Elite?? I think assuming he will be another Gronk is a huge assumption. He should be good, but You still have to protect the QB.

    Yes and we have spent how many picks all ready with this strategy and still do not have it right. Time to do something different.

    Of course you cant assume anything, but if you're looking for the next Gronk, chances are it will be the guy who's the highest-rated TE prospect in a few years. He's elite as far as TE prospects go.

    To put my use of the word into perspective, there doesn't appear to be "elite" talent at CB and WR in this draft, though there is much depth at those positions and some players that could end up being quite good.

    As for protecting the QB, I'm with you. I'd rather our first-rounder didn't go towards a guard though, elite as Cooper or Warmack may be...

    Eifert is a game changer. He's another player a defense would have to especially account for in its game plan. The Dolphins haven't had multiple players like that in years. Plus, I think it would be a mistake to stand pat at TE with Keller and Egnew. We have no idea what we have in Egnew, and Keller is talented, but we're rolling the dice with his injury history. There's a reason Keller was given a 1 year deal. We have no idea whether he's going to hold up.

    Elite?? I mean he is very good, great body control, really good hands and size, but I don't think you can call him elite, not like Vernon Davis elite. Davis is a 4.3 guy, Eifert is a 4.66, almost 4.7, that is a different world. He isn't the great down field threat that some seem to think, Keller is a 4.5 guy. Tyler will be a great redzone threat, which is really what we need, but Tyler won't be running away from LBs. That isn't who he is.

    To gain some perspective, Terron Armstead the 6-5, 306 lb LT from Pine Bluff ran a 4.65 40.

    the more I see Eifert, the more im jumping on his bandwagon. Trade back with Minnesota maybe, get 2 picks in the 1st round. Select Eifert and a CB, then get Armstead in the 2nd round and Pugh maybe to play OG. Perfect.
