Notre Dame TE Tyler Eifert and Stanford TE Zach Ertz are widely considered the top two tight end prospects in the draft class. They’re living up to their billing in the workout drills thus far here at the NFL Combine.
Eifert had an eye-popping 35.5 inch vertical and a 9’11″ broad jump. He also pumped out 22 reps on the bench.
Ertz had Eifert beat on the bench with 24 reps, but was a bit behind in the vertical (30.5″) and broad jump (9’3″).
Another TE putting in a solid workout is Rice’s Vance McDonald. He’s got the high in his position group for bench press with 31 reps and matched Eifert in the broad jump (9’11″). He has not yet attempted the vertical leap.
Buffalo GM Buddy Nix said tight end is a need position for the Bills due to the uncertainty of Scott Chandler coming off ACL surgery at the end of the regular season.
