    It only makes sense to pick a TE later in the draft.
    It doesnt make sense because there is a drop off from Eifert, and the rest of the TEs in the draft.

    Trade back and get Hayden and Eifert(or Ertz) then it is smart.
    I would only trade down a bit if we can get Eifert.

    Hayden or Milliner is way more valuable than a TE.
    You have to defend the pass and right now Cb is the biggest weakness on this team.
    CB is not the biggest weakness on the team right now, the OLine is. I like Milliner, but his injury history should be a concern, and I bet he drops a bit because of that. Our CB core needs additions, but added another pass rusher, which is also a big need for this team, will help out the secondary a lot.

    Eifert is a smart pick for us, even if it is at 12. He is big, great hands, can block, and is a big red zone target for us. Keller is only here for a year, and the other TE prospects we have are nowhere near ready, nor can block like Eifert or Keller. Eifert also helps out Wallace a lot, because safeties will not be able to double up Wallace as often. Unless they move up in the draft, Eifert would be the best pick at 12, IMO.

    We need to move the chains and get first downs.
    Eifert potentially provides the outlet that RT needs.
    Red Zone threat, how many receivers caught TDs last year?
    We need to be scoring more than 18 points a game in this league to win consistently.
    Eifert will give LB and S more to worry about.
    We need to start picking Linemen better in the drafts later rounds like good GMs do.
    Time to step up Ireland...anyone can spend $45M on proven talent in the FA pool.
    Where is the talent evaluation?

    Theres a better chance of us trading up for Eifert than there is of us trading down and getting him. A lot of Mocks have him going as high as six, and a lot of speculation that the Falcons and Jets want him.

    If they dont move up for Fisher, Cooper, or LJ, what lineman are you going with at 12? Picking Eifert at 12 is less of a reach than going for a lineman outside of the ones I already mentioned.

    NE and GB among others have provided the paradigm that you can win in this league so long as your scoring machine outscores the bunch of points relinquished by your mediocre defense. We've already got a good defense.. so why not load up on offensive weapons which will move the ball downfield with regularity (also giving our D the required rest) while fueling our young QB's confidence level which will then feed on itself. That's why I guess.


    Dear Math, please grow up and solve your own problems, I'm tired of solving them for you. -Anon

    We need to score more points. This would allow the defense to take chances at times to confuse the other team and get turn overs. Instead of playing each down as if a win depends on it. The defense has had to play it safe a lot to protect a small lead. Let us lead by 20 going into the 4th and get the other teams turn overs trying to catch up.

    We can get a good player always down to the 3rd round. A good GM can find gems in the 5th and 6th. Ireland is not listening to the Parcels music anymore. He's listening with an ear towards todays NFL with a minor influence of Parcels. Hiring Philbon forced a change in draft strategy, he looks at the game differently and you have to give him the pieces he needs for his system.

    Football's greatest essential is SCORING POINTS. It's what the game is all about.

    It is NOT about "pass rush" and "kill the QB".

    It is NOT about "protect the QB".

    You can do both those things and be 4-12. We have done that before.

    We haven't scored any points since 1994. We have been mediocre all that time.

    We have got to get AWAY from the jimmy johnson-bill parcells "smallball"- "sneak-and-squeak"- "inside-out" paradigm.
    Ryan Tannehill. Ah, what a relief. Life is good.

    from all accounts, he's going to be a better blocker than keller, so our two te sets, Eifert would stay in get a chip block and then out for the outlet pass he goes, and which btw, add in the RAC, and red zone threat and Eifert makes our two TE set deadly. And since keller is a rental, we're solving a problem for next season too.

    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.
    Exactly this. Also, Keller isn't signed long. Eifert would be a long-term answer. He's a willing blocker too
