Eifert vs Austin

Assuming that you’re the GM and you don’t like the boom bust potential of DT’s and you’re not enthralled with anyone else you decide to take an offensive play maker.


Who would you take? Austin or Eifert (I'm ruling out Patterson) Both players have identical draft grades (all according to ESPN) and are rated one after the other in term of top players.



[b]Case for Austin.[/b]
The most pro ready WR and arguably the biggest play maker in college this year, a potential clone of SS and we know what he can do. Can play both offensive and special teams.


[b]Case for Eifert.[/b]
People have a lot of concern over Patterson. Austin is the top WR on most guys draft boards, but the knock against him is that he is small and more of a slot position. Eifert is the ‘safest’ pick in the first 2 rounds for the value (per ESPN guys). Teaming him up with Olsen provides a dual threat at that position but also that it allows an extra blocker. Look at how the Pats play both Gronk and Hernandez. Adding Eifert should also help with line protection which would help alleviate part of that problem.


Personally I would be very excited about both players. However I think that Eifert could provide the most immediate value as he can provide in both the passing and running game.

They had him rated higher than Kyle Rudolph so he would be a nice weapon to get. Just not in a position to take him with pressing needs like DT n OL..even WR. The TE from Rice is an intriguing 4th-5th rd guy..

Im not really familiar with the rest of the TE class but I though that it was an interesting thought. Specifically if you rule out the offensive and defensive lines.

I have preached, I said, I have PREACHED about taking an Eifert or Ertz in this draft over a receiver. But, Im not sure if I would take either one of them at 14. At 44, if Eifert is there, there's probably no reason why we should pass up on him. We'd be dumb to.

I'd be down for a te in the first or more realistically the second. Definitely

Show me a thread I've made that's dumber than wanting to draft a right end with our first pick.

If you think that's a good idea than I can't talk to you lol.

its funny how when people disagree it becomes a 'stupid thread' and how those type of posts tend to derail conversations.<end rant>

14 might be a bit early for a TE - but in a league that now values TE's I cannot see him making it to 44.
