                                                HGT:  6-6       WGT:  251                                                 YR:     SR       POS:  TE Pros: Extremely long in length(Long arms) Excellent ball skill, attacks ball at its highest point Good get off LOS Impressive body control while ball is in the air Good straight line speed for TE(Tight End), good athlete but lacks elite explosion Ability to screen off defenders while ball is in the air Natural pass catcher Understands hand placement while run blocking but needs to be cautious of grabbing Presents a wide catching radius Displays good initial pad shelf considering length Ability to drop hips and transition quickly out of breaks Understands route running depth and width Cons: Would like to see added bulk, thin lower body Lacks core strength, needs to add lower body power More initial violence at the POA At times catches and leans while run blocking Possesses a narrow base in Pass Pro At times ducks head in Pass Pro Needs to finish blocks off Lacks proper balance while run blocking Would like to see more separation (Although I don’t feel as if that will be a concern versus Linebacker/Safeties given his transition out of breaks) Seldom exhibits yards after catch Analysis: Tyler Eifert possesses great ball skills. Eifert understands route running and because of his length, he is also able to create mismatches when guarded by Linebackers and Safeties. The majority of the time Notre Dame splits him out wide at Receiver. Eifert’s length, pad level and effort shows upside in the development of his run blocking. Eifert’s strength, bulk and run blocking consistency is something that needs to be addressed this offseason.
