Post BCS loss, Tyler Eifert declares for the draft

Not long after Notre Dame walked off the field from an embarrassing 42-14 loss to Alabama in the BCS championship game, tight end Tyler Eifert went ahead and did the expected: declared for the 2013 NFL draft.

“It was tough,” Eifert said. “Taking off that Notre Dame jersey and helmet for the last time was emotional. It’s going to be tough to leave.”

The move was anticipated. Eifert finished the season with 50 receptions for 685 yards and four touchdowns, and is generally considered among the top, if not the top, tight end in this year’s class.

    TE University recently, Fasano, Carlson, Rudolph, Yeatman, Reuland and now Eifert. Add Fauria if he makes the league as well.

    Tyler Eifert will gets lots of publicity playing on Sundays, mostly because he went to (hushed, reverential tone) Notre Dame.
