Eifert or Ertz??

I agree with those that would pass on a TE with either the 31st or 34th pick. I want the Niners to focus on the defensive side of the ball with their first 3 or 4 picks.
I'd go for Ertz, but we need help at DLine, so maybe a guy like Kelcie or Mc Donald would be better for us.
If Eifert is there at 31 or 34, take him. If not go with defensive picks and hope Ertz falls.

Yes.
It'd be a significant upgrade to have a big red zone target. I was hoping for a big tall WR (Bolden), but maybe a better option would be to target a big TE.

I break it down into Tiers:

Tier 1:
Eifert
Ertz

Tier 2:
Vance McDonald
Gavin Escobar
Travis Kelce

After those guys, there is still a lot of talent, but there seems to be a drop off.

As a redzone target, I also like Joseph Fauria as a late round option.
pablo escobar
Remember everyones draft crush last year, a guy from stanford by the name of fleener? Some of guys are gonna get your heart broken again by Harbaalke

Want a red zone target, take on a project with lots of potential like Levin Toilolo in the late rounds. The guy is 6-8 and a good wingspan. If it works out it'll be like Harold Carmichael of the eagles from long ago. He'd have considerable size over the seahacks small safety as well as there DB's
a 7 footer in the endzone would be noice, real noice.

If they're going to go that route, I'd rather just draft Fauria. He had 12 TD's last season.

Rumor has it his game has a few dead spots.

Wilt Chamberlain once worked out with the KC Chiefs in the early 60's.
They both mirror each other...

Does it? Walker learned how to be a great blocker. Take the best doot and teach him to block

If they become effective/good at the next level, either one will do the job. Whatever position FO goes with, I'll just deal, trust in their decision and hope for the best. BUT honestly, I will be disappointed if they don't go defense in the early rounds of the draft.

The offense put more than enough points to win in SB... the defense wasn't great and special teams was nothing special!!

Yeah, this isn't about a TE driving his man off the line. All our TE has to do is know when and where to show up and throw an angle block. If we go the route of mauling TE blocker, then that's fine and other guys like Sims and Kelce can do that. But if we want someone to do what Delanie did? Most of these TEs can do that, if they learn their assignments and execute.
