    that is a great question because as of right now the answers are:

    Stevenson Sylvester, Robert Golden, Damon Cromartie-Smith, Jonathan Dwyer, Antonio Brown, and Cortez Allen/Willie Gay.

    And unproven rookies who never played a down in the NFL would make you jump for joy?
    Playing Fantasy Football does not qualify you to be the in the front office or on the coaching staff of the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are professionals and you are not!

    Great pick if we can get him, then RB in the 2nd and WR in the 3rd then load up on LBs and DBs with the rest of the picks with maybe 1 each of OL and DL

    HT: 6-6
    WT: 250
    POS: TE


    Analysis: Really like this fit. Eifert gives the Steelers a different kind of matchup headache for defenses -- one that doesn't directly replace Mike Wallace, but adds a new dimension to the offense. In fact, he might do more to offset the loss of Wallace than another speed threat would because he allows them to diversify. Eifert has the speed to stretch the seam and also develop routes to the edges, and can't be effectively covered by anybody. He's too tall for corners and safeties, too fast for linebackers.

    seems to be the reaction for all the folks who support eifert @ 1:17.

    I wouldn't love the pick or hate the pick. I'm just not sure what people see in this guy that makes him so special. Seems like a luxury pick in some ways, especially if they have a good idea that miller will return to his old form.

    I would almost rather have jonathan cooper at that spot if he is there. He may have a much higher ceiling than eifert, even though cooper could be considered a luxury pick as well.

    Agreed...at least Cooper is a legit top 15 talent who could be the best player available when we pick.

    Eifert is a solid player, but he's a borderline 1st/2nd rounder, and therefore would not be BPA at #17.

    If we are looking for a TE, then Ertz at #48 presents much greater value than Eifert at #17.

    The thing that is attractive about Eifert is magnified by Heath's health concerns and the knowledge Heath is only around a couple more years. IMO Eifert could also produce from Day 1 which, I know we disagree, is something a Round 1 pick should be able to do.

    Kiper mock drafts are never right... Kiprer has officially smashed all the "Eifert at 1.17" hopes and dreams.
    yep... seems like every year most of his can't miss, best players are still on the board after the first round.

    I get that he may contribute early, though I'm not as worried about year one as some are. What I don't get is what do you guys see that makes him special? I watch some notre dame, not a lot, and I've never come away with a sense of his great athleticism for that position. He cdrtainly never screamed 1st round, 17th pick at me.
