In news that was simply a formality, Tyler Eifert announced after Monday night's game that he would be heading to the NFL draft, saying that he knew for "quite a while" that the Discover BCS National Championship would be his finale, according to the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.

The Mackey Award winner caught six passes for 61 yards in Notre Dame's 42-14 loss to Alabama.

Draft analyst Mel Kiper Jr. has Eifert at No. 17 on his Big Board.

Ben Koyack, Troy Niklas and Alex Welch -- who missed this season after tearing an ACL in camp -- are next in line for a school that has recently developed the moniker of "Tight End U."
