TE TYLER EIFERT
Tyler Eifert has the best combination of height, speed and athletic ability in this TE draft class. He is a fluid pass catcher that has great body control and catching radius. Eifert is a TE that has good leaping ability and length. These attributes allows him to go up and compete for balls at its highest point, this is a trait that Dolphins receiving core lacks at the moment.
Last year’s 3rd rounder Michael Egnew is more of a “move” TE that can play in space as a hybrid TE/WR but struggles in-line as a blocker because of his lack of lower body strength, therefore he is not considered at this point to be an every down TE.
Free Agent pickup Dustin Keller was a solid signing but he is only contracted to a one year deal, drafting Tyler Eifert at #12 will secure the position and give the Dolphins a solid every down option at TE for years to come.

The Fins selected Ryan Tannehill in the first round. I have started for some time that I thought the 8th overall pick was a bit high for Tannehill. But after years of neglect of the QB position, the Fins did not have much of a choice.
I like Tannehill’s upside, though he is still somewhat raw. It will probably take a year or more to develop him into a starting NFL QB. Still, the drafting of Tannehill represents the organization’s decision to focus long term rather than their “win now” mentality. This paradigm shift could be the beginning of the team’s return to prominence.
In the second round, the Fins took Stanford OT Jonathon Martin. I like the pick from a value stand point. Martin was a fir Continue reading
