One NFL Scout told Mark Eckel that Notre Dame TE Tyler Eifert will "probably go somewhere in the middle of the first round, somewhere in the teens."
"And somebody is going to get a real good player there," the same scout added. Another evaluator said "(Detroit's Brandon) Pettigrew was pretty good coming out, but this kid is better all-around then he was. This guy is the real deal. He can run. He can catch. He runs good routes. He's not a great blocker, but he's getting better at it, and he'll get even better yet."
