Bengals TE Tyler Eifert Making A Big Impression In OTA's
With the Bengals two-thirds of the way through the organized team activity practices, tight end Tyler Eifert continues to make a big impression, Joe Reedy of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
While rookies sometimes do struggle with the speed of the game and picking up the nuances of the playbook, the first-round pick hasn’t had any problems at all.
Said Andy Dalton on how Eifert has done so far: “From Day 1 nothing has seemed too big for him. It’s like ‘you want to go do this, OK I’ll go do this.’ He does it really well. That’s why we picked him with the first pick, and he’s really well-deserving.”
When asked for a self-assessment of how OTAs have gone, Eifert said a better judge would be tight ends coach Jonathan Hayes. According to Hayes, so far everything is good.
“After working him out and spending time with him before the draft, he is on target and about where I thought he would be,” Hayes said on Thursday. “He has been great mentally and keeps an even keel. It is hard to tell from him whether things are going good or bad. He would be a great poker player that way.”
“I try to stay composed and understand my assignments so that I can play fast,” Eifert said. “So far it is just memorizing concepts. Once you have that down it’s basically the same stuff.”
