im not a big draft guy when it comes to the combine and all the measures, but can anyone fill me in on his current draft status/ranking? im a ND fan and he's one of my favorite guys on the team so im hoping that if bennett does not get re-signed and we draft a TE it is him. i think his stock is too high for us, but im not sure. all i know is he has come along as an all-around TE at notre dame and he has ideal size at 6'6 250lbs.
He's ranked number 1 by most draft analysts with Stanford's Zach Ertz not far behind. He'll be available at 19, though I think we'll pass on him...good, not great prospect imo

Late 1st to mid 2nd imo. Though if he has a huge performance in the BCS game, his stock could rise. Think he is a future Packer or Falcon.
I wouldn't say anything really takes away from his stock, just nothing really raises it to be a top 20 pick at TE. Also he doesn't have alot of experience as an inline TE b/c Notre Dame plays him more like a WR, Hback type.

Eifert high points the ball better than any TE in College Football. He has fantastic body control
Redeye, any chance we could get some Travis Kelce. Very intriguing height, weight, speed prospect who looks to be an old school all around TE. He split time as a wildcat QB his freshmen season, so you know the athletiscm is there. Also outproduced Eifert on the field this season
