Continued: NFL draft preview: Wide receivers and tight ends

Just the latest NFL-ready tight end to come out of Notre Dame. The Vikings have two of them — Kyle Rudolph and John Carlson — so they’re not interested. Eifert is 6-6, 250 pounds and runs with enough speed to be a matchup problem.

THE SLEEPER

Da’Rick Rogers, Tennessee Tech

The 6-2, 217-pounder has all the physical attributes to make it in the NFL. He’s big, strong and fast. He has good hands and can make difficult catches over the middle. But he’s a big character risk who teams will stay away from until the third day of the draft. He was dismissed from Tennessee because of bad behavior before the 2012 season. He transferred down to the FCS level and dominated with 78 catches for 1,207 yards and 11 TDs.
