Why Dolphins fans should be excited about Mike Gesicki

  • Why Dolphins fans should be excited about Mike Gesicki

The Miami Dolphins had a hole at tight end after cutting eight-year veteran Julius Thomas.

He finished his Nittany Lions career with 129 catches for 1,481 yards and 15 touchdowns, including a school-record nine for a tight end last fall. He could easily finish his rookie season as a TE2, but he should only be drafted in dynasty leagues. And the Dolphins are hoping for more of the same in the NFL.

"He's a hard match-up for people", Grier said.

Via NFL.com's Lance Zierlein, an AFC executive was quoted as saying that Fitzpatrick is "not quite on the same level of (New York Jets) Jamal Adams when it comes to changing the entire culture of a locker room, but he is just as talented and probably more versatile". Week to week, I was playing a different position based off what the offense did and where I was needed at week to week.

"I definitely need to continue to improve my run blocking".

While Gesicki's size made him an appealing choice, the 225-pound Baker is undersized. He didn't put up the same interception numbers this past season, but Fitzpatrick was all over the field (8.0 tackles for loss, 8.0 pass breakups) and fought through injuries to eventually win the Jim Thorpe and Chuck Bednarik Awards, be named a unanimous All-American and win his second national title in three years. "He's sideline to sideline".




Hayden Hurst of SC was the only tight end taken before Gesicki, going to the Ravens with the 25th pick of the first round.

"For us, he was a player that was a targeted player", Grier said.

Fitzpatrick was the victor of the Bednarik and Thorpe awards which are given to the nation's top defensive player and defensive back, respectively.

Payne became the Redskins' second straight first-round pick from Alabama after Washington picked Allen at No. 17 overall previous year, and also reunites with former Tide linebacker Ryan Anderson, who went to the Redskins in the second round.

On the final day of the draft they'll be in the market for a defensive tackle and backup quarterback.
