TE Tyler Eifert

6 feet 6, 250 pounds

Notre Dame

Very tough in a crowd, showing strong hands to make contested catches and a physical demeanor to come down with the ball in tight spaces. … Tall, lean frame. … Lines up with his hand down, in an H-back role, in the slot and outside. Threatens the seam with his long strides off the snap, takes a lot of hits across the middle and bounces up. … Nice job gaining position in coverage with very good footwork, taking pride in his routes and showing much improvement in this area. Elevates well to go up and attack the ball; just needs an opportunity, and chances are he will come down with it. … Very good at midair adjustments, making a lot of catches with his feet off the ground. Uses his height, length and strong hands to snatch passes. Flashes quick feet on out cuts to be an effective safety valve. Fights through arm tackles to get extra yardage. … Left Irish with just about every school career receiving record for a tight end including catches (140) and receiving yards (1,840).
