If Miami can somehow trade and come back down from pick #42 and find a way to get this kid, I believe this is a weapon that would help Tannehill tremendously. There is talk Eifert may not even make it out of the first round, but if he slips to the very end of the first, early, second, you move up and snatch this kid.
Eifert ranks as No. 1 tight end for April's NFL Draft and is widely considered the top player at his position. He is projected as a late first- or early second-round selection; check out the mock draft analysis here.
Although he didn't match his production from a year ago, Eifert still led the Irish in receiving in 2012 with 50 catches for 685 yards and four touchdowns, including six catches for 61 yards in Monday's title game. Even without a 100-yard receiving game during his time in South Bend, he finishes his Notre Dame career with 140 catches for 1,840 yards and 11 scores, holding numerous school records by a tight end.
Eifert looks the part (6-foot-5,252 pounds) for the position and has always been a reliable receiver, but he really improved as a blocker the past three seasons. He has strong hands and does a nice job making contested catches in traffic with the smooth body control and footwork of a wide receiver. The most versatile weapon on the Irish offense, Eifert lined up both in-line and out wide on the Notre Dame offense, often matching up with opposing cornerbacks. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/draft/players/1664437
