Pass Receiving:
NFL prototype: Ron Gronkowski, Patriots

#1 Tyler Eifert
Eifert is dangerous down the middle of the field with the ability to work the seam for big yards. He also isn't afraid to make leaping grabs and expose himself to hard hits. His receiving ability is the top of the class and his best attribute.

Blocking:
NFL prototype: Heath Miller, Steelers
#5 Tyler Eifert
Eifert needed to, and did, improve his blocking ability as a senior. Eifert was much more effective at the point of attack rather than getting pushed around.

Red Zone:
NFL prototype: Tony Gonzalez, Falcons
#3 Tyler Eifert
Eifert (6-6) had nine touchdowns the past two seasons. He has height to go with a huge vertical leap. Eifert could be even better at producing scores in the NFL

Speed:
NFL prototype: Vernon Davis, 49ers
#1 Tyler Eifert
The fastest player in this group is Eifert. He has the speed to beat defenders in man coverage and get downfield quickly. For the NFL, Eifert's speed should translate the best.

Hands:
NFL prototype: Jason Witten, Cowboys
#3 Tyler Eifert
#1 Ertz, #2 Escobar and Eifert all have really good hands. I think Ertz is the most sure-handed of the three. There are plays where it seems like he has glue on his hands. A drop is a rare sight from any of these three.

H-Back:
NFL prototype: Aaron Hernandez, Patriots
#4 Tyler Eifert
Ertz and Eifert could play some h-back, but aren't natural fits.

Downfield Threat:
NFL prototype: Jimmy Graham, Saints
#1 Tyler Eifert
Projecting to the NFL, Eifert looks like the best bet as a tight end who will be able to hurt a defense downfield. He made a number of catches for big gains and can hurt a defense with his speed.

Yards After Catch:
NFL prototype: Ron Gronkowski, Patriots
#2 Tyler Eifert
Eifert does well with the ball in his hands. Beyond his speed, he is a big load and is tough to bring down. Eifert should be good at getting yards after the catch in the NFL.


the only way it would make sense to have GB select him would be to release or trade JerMike. I am not certain that is going to happen. They sure can't get rid of Finely before the draft and hope that Eifert would be there.
