2014 NFL Draft: Many Prospects from Notre Dame may Shine

In 2013, the Fighting Irish were represented well at the NFL Draft. Players like Tyler Eifert and Manti Te'o headlined the class that had a total of six players drafted by NFL teams. 2014 isn't any different. In fact, there's a potential for three first-round picks this year: DE Stephon Tuitt, DT Louis Nix, and OL Zack Martin.Tuitt is a tricky prospect, having tremendous...

Photo: Bengals Tyler Eifert rocks “Ochocinco II” Shirt

Chad “Ochocinco” Johnson made sure people knew who he was. He’s one of the most marketable receivers in the game, and he’s not even on a roster. He made the number 85 in Cincinnati famous by legally changing his name to “Ochocinco” so it’d display on the back of his jersey. After the move, things went downhill, he was traded to the Patriots only to be released before...

Independents Preview: Notre Dame offense will need an overhaul

What does Brian Kelly have up his sleeve for this fall? (Photo courtesy: USA Today Sports) In retrospect, Notre Dame’s return in 2012 to the upper echelon of the college football world came in unlikely fashion. Aside from the occasional scalping, such as the one ND put on Miami, the Fighting Irish rarely dominated any of their opponents, winning six games by a touchdown...

5 Reasons Why the Irish Won’t Return to the National Championship

The Notre Dame Fighting Irish had a much-needed National Championship run last football season that revived the Irish Nation.  The season, however, ended in absolute embarrassment as the Alabama Crimson Tide rolled over the Irish in the BCS National Championship Game.  Not only were the Irish’s weakness exposed, but they were dominated in all aspects of the game.  The Irish’s...

Bengals add offensive weapon in Eifert

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.

Cincinnati Bengals Select Zach Eifert in First Round

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...

First Round NFL Draft Grades: Cincinnati Bengals

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...
