Eifert up, Te'o down on Kiper's Big Board
By Matt Fortuna
The draft stocks of Tyler Eifert and Manti Te'o have taken different directions since this past weekend's NFL scouting combine in Indianapolis.
Could Eifert be the first former Notre Dame player taken?
Following an impressive showing in Indy, the former Irish tight end moved up four spots this week on Mel Kiper Jr.'s Big Board, to No. 18 . Te'o, meanwhile, dropped seven spots after a weekend that saw him handle the media session well but disappoint in the 40 time (4.82) and in, well, size. (At 241 pounds, he was 14 pounds lighter than his listed weight of 255 at Notre Dame.)
