ND all over Kiper, McShay draft boards
By Matt Fortuna
We're less than four weeks away from national title game, which means we're just more than four months away from the NFL draft.
Too early? Never. And, if Mel Kiper's and Todd McShay's forecasts prove correct, two of Notre Dame seniors will reap quite the rewards after turning down potential first-round draft selections last season for another year of school.
Kiper also has both among the top-five players in their position groups in their respective classes, with Eifert falling into the junior category since, technically, he has one year of eligibility remaining after this season.
