If I was sure we could get a NT in 2nd I might look strongly at Tyler Eifert TE.
Yeah, a TE like Eifert would be nice to grab in the 1st, but I think a team like the Bears or Packers will snatch him up in the early 20's. You could see it last night that the Bears are really hurting at TE after letting Greg Olsen go. The fans even boo'ed Davis off the field after he got hurt! Eifert would be extremely useful to them, and somewhat local being from Indiana. The Packers also need to replace Jermichael Finley this year, and Eifert would be an excellent fit there.
I think we would need to trade up for him, which would cost us a 3rd. If he somehow falls to us, then yeah I would take him, but I don't see it happening. This year's crop of TE's is pretty thin, and he's the only truly complete TE. I was thinking Robert Woods may fall to us, he's projected to be a late 1st on most sites and I like his speed and hands. Would be a nice option opposite AJ, since we already have about a half dozen slot receivers that could fill the #3 role.
