Personally, I see minimal difference between Eifert and Ertz, and significant difference between Jones and Collins.
I guess it would go by preference. I personally wouldn't take either Jones or Eifert @ #17. But if I had to choose between your scenarios, I would actually go with Eifert-Collins. There isn't as big as a gap as you think between Jones & Collins. Collins has heaping upside compared to Jones. Jones might be more NFL ready but neither see the field at OLB year 1 here. I think talent wise, your combined comparison is pretty close.

I will throw another twist to Better value.
Trade Down:
1. Eifert TE
2. Hunter WR
3. (For Trade) Lemonier OLB


Now compare Eifert, Hunter, Lemonier to your two name package above. I think clearly more value exists in the three player package.
