1.21 Cincinnati Bengals Tyler Eifert, TE, Notre Dame, (6-6, 251)
In perhaps a surprising move by the Bengals, they select Eifert with their first round pick in the 2013 draft. The Bengals already have Jermaine Gresham, so they’re expected to turn to many two tight end sets, which could work very well with the skill set of Andy Dalton.
Eifert is a tight end that can step in right away and be physical enough across the middle to come down with the tough catches, which compliments a more finesse tight end like Gresham. While Eifert is an excellent pass catcher, he needs to improve on his run blocking in order to be an every down player in the NFL.
