1.21 Cincinnati Bengals Tyler Eifert, TE, Notre Dame, (6-6, 251)
In perhaps a surprising move by the Bengals, they select Eifert with their first round pick in the 2013 draft. The Bengals already have Jermaine Gresham, so they’re expected to turn to many two tight end sets, which could work very well with the skill set of Andy Dalton.
Eifert is a tight end that can step in right away and be physical enough across the middle to come down with the tough catches, which compliments a more finesse tight end like Gresham. While Eifert is an excellent pass catcher, he needs to improve on his run blocking in order to be an every down player in the NFL.

CINCINNATI Tight end wasnt a position of need for the Bengals heading into the first round of the NFL Draft but drafting Tyler Eifert was a no-brainer when the Notre Dame product was still available at pick No. 21 Thursday night.
The Bengals added to their offensive arsenal by taking Eifert, a mismatch-in-the-making at 6-foot-5, 250 pounds.
New England has made the NFL take notice...
PICK: Tyler Eifert, TE, Notre DameANALYSIS: Hmm. I never even considered Eifert to the Bengals, but I like this idea. Pairing him with Gresham could be an awesome combo for Andy Dalton. This could be a mini version of Gronk/Hernandez. I'm a bit surprised by this pick, so I'm a bit iffy on how to grade this. It doesn't fit a big need, but the value is great and he could...
With the 21st pick of the 2013 NFL Draft, the Cincinnati Bengals select Tight End Tyler Eifert out of Notre Dame.
Add another passing target for Bengals QB Dawson, and now the Bengals are really going to have to be taken seriously. He was Notre Dames No. 1 offensive weapon in 2012, lining up out wide as a WR or in-line as a traditional TE, and was the type of target defensive coordinators...

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...
We are less than a week from the NFL Draft, also known as the most important day of the year for your Cleveland Browns. With (another) new regime taking over the reigns and new schemes in place on both sides of the ball, it is crucial that Joe Banner, Mike Lombardi, Ray Farmer, Rob Chudzinski and the crew nail these three days. It all starts Thursday night with the primetime First...
I have struggled with this decision plain and simple. I like Keenan Allen. I like DeAndre Hopkins. I like a lot of guys but the question keeps coming back to me. Which potential pick from the offensive side of the ball is truly a first round pick in our position?
In my decision-making process, I want it to be known that my most favorite choice at pick number 17 is to trade down....
The NFL Draft is looming, and the rumors are flying. St. Louis Rams general manager Les Snead said it best earlier today when he told NFL Network “Right now, everybody’s just flirting.”
The Carolina Panthers are one of seven teams picking in the top 14 with a rookie general manager this year.
Panthers general manager Dave Gettleman came to Carolina from the Giants, so...
