Gesicki selected by Miami Dolphins in NFL Draft

Miami Dolphins select TE Mike Gesicki with the 42nd pick in the 2018 NFL Draft

They drafted him anyway, which shows how much they like his pass-catching skills.

Ballage rushed for 1,984 yards and 27 touchdowns in four seasons at Arizona State and added 82 receptions for 469 yards and two scores.

A top red zone threat, Gesicki was the second tight end to come off the board after Baltimore selected South Carolina's Hayden Hurst in the first round. He was the 42nd overall pick.

"The one thing everyone talks about is him not being a great blocker", Dolphins general manager Chris Grier said. "And this kid wants to be a better blocker". He'll be reunited with another former Buckeyes linebacker, Raekwon McMillan, the Dolphins' second-round choice in 2017. And the Dolphins are hoping for more of the same in the NFL. "Being that big and athletic, he can move the chains on third down and then the speed can open up other stuff on the field for you".

Gesicki is projected start for the Dolphins ahead of returnees MarQueis Gray, A.J. Derby and Thomas Duarte and newcomer Gavin Escobar.

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". "I know I'm exactly where I belong". Week to week, I was playing a different position based off what the offense did and where I was needed at week to week. "It can become very exciting in Miami".

After issuing a two-out double to Domingo Santana in the sixth, Darvish struck out Hernan Perez on a slider to end his afternoon. Hopefully, he will be back this weekend so Bryant can get this nasty memory of a fastball to the head situation behind him.

"The 6'6" Gesicki is the highest Penn State tight end selected in the NFL Draft since Kyle Brady was taken 9th overall by the Jets in 1995. He acknowledged he has room for improvement and expects to benefit from National Football League coaching.

"First and foremost, blocking is a part of my game I definitely take pride in", Smythe said.

In three seasons under legendary head coach Nick Saban, the defensive back totaled 171 tackles, 16.5 tackles for loss, five sacks, nine interceptions and 24 passes defended. "He's sideline to sideline".

Penn State's Mike Gesicki is expected to immediately challenge for the Miami Dolphins' starting tight end job as a rookie. Former Valor Christian star Christian McCaffrey was picked in the first round a year ago by the Carolina Panthers.

They landed Alabama Crimson Tide standout defensive back Minkah Fitzpatrick, making their secondary instantly better.
