Old thread, dug it up searching our board for Tyler Eifert. What do y'all think about possibly drafting him in the first?

Tyler Eifert, about 6'5-6'6, some 250 lbs.
A combination of size, speed, leaping ability, good hands, and toughness.
This guy probably goes in the first or second round.

I think Duane Brown is the only offensive player we've taken in the 1st round during the Kubiak regime, and that's probably not about to change unless there is some sort of physical freak available.
Now that we've got a competent defense & DC, I think we may see an offensive pick in the 1st round.
Not that we'll definitely pick on an offensive player, but I would think the value of offensive players has caught up to the value of defensive players. Remember, until recently we'd field a top 10 offense & a last place defense.
