The Miami Dolphins had a hole at tight end after cutting eight-year veteran Julius Thomas.
Primarily used for his exceptional pass catching ability, Gesicki finished his senior season No. 3 nationally among tight ends with 57 receptions and fourth nationally with nine touchdown receptions. He could easily finish his rookie season as a TE2, but he should only be drafted in dynasty leagues.
They selectedPenn State's Mike Gesicki earlier on Day 2. Last season, despite some offensive inefficiencies out of his control, Ridley still led the team with 63 receptions for 967 yards.
The Dolphins hope Gesicki's deficiencies don't keep him from starting as a rookie.
"He's a hard matchup for people, being that big and athletic", Grier said. "Move the chains on third down and then his speed will open up other stuff on the field for you". He was widely projected as a top 10 pick, and is expected to be deployed on occasion as a linebacker, as a blitzer or against big receivers.
He blocking is outstanding, but his dependable hands will ensure that he remains a necessary cog in any offense he plays in. MI defensive tackle Maurice Hurst could be year one starter with massive upside immediately.
"He's going to be a safety", Grier said.
Fitzpatrick is the seventh former Alabama defensive back taken in the first round since 2010, joining Marlon Humphrey (Baltimore Ravens, 2017), Ha Ha Clinton-Dix (Green Bay Packers, 2014), Dee Milliner (New York Jets 2013), Mark Barron, (Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 2012), Dre Kirkpatrick (Cincinnati Bengals, 2012) and Kareem Jackson (Houston Texans, 2010). Former Valor Christian star Christian McCaffrey was picked in the first round a year ago by the Carolina Panthers.
