It’s true that the rookie from Notre Dame didn’t exactly get the best landing spot. For him to end up on a team with another first-round tight end seems like nothing but bad news. Yet, Eifert’s talent didn’t drop due to location. The Bengals need more offensive weapons. A.J. Green is nice and young receivers Marvin Jones and Mohamed Sanu have promise.

Gresham can block, but doesn’t have consistent hands and is not a downfield threat. Eifert is. He’s also going to be an excellent red-zone target due to his beastly size. Take him as your TE2 and prosper.
