Mike Gesicki's athleticism too great for Dolphins to pass on

LOOK: Minkah Fitzpatrick accepts Chad Johnson's challenge to 1-on-1 matchup

The Dolphins added another target for quarterback Ryan Tannehill, selecting 6-foot-6, 247 pound Mike Gesicki out of Penn State in Round 2 of the 2018 National Football League draft.

Miami continued their theme of winning in between the numbers with the additions of Mike Gesicki and Jerome Baker. "Move the chains on third down and then his speed will open up other stuff on the field for you". Veteran Julius Thomas was the top tight end in receptions in 2017 with 41 but he will not return.

Ridley led the Tide in receiving each of the past three seasons, finishing his collegiate career as the program's second-ever player with 200-plus receptions, pulling down 224 catches for 2,781 receiving yards and 19 touchdowns.

"Every kid says that coming out, and we'll see, but we're very excited to have him".

Celtics take series, respect in Game 7
The Bucks never got within single digits after that, and the Celtics led by as many as 19. "I decided that's not going to happen". He was spotted riding an exercise bicycle at the start of the second half and was later deemed available to return but did not.

The Penn State record holder for career touchdowns by a tight end has a new home.

Smythe is arguably the best blocking tight end in the draft and the second player at the position the Dolphins have drafted this weekend.

Gesicki boosted his National Football League draft stock with a sensational performance in Indianapolis, running a 4.54. "Even at the next level, he will pose a matchup problem with his ability to high-point the ball and outleap his defenders".

Earlier this week Gesicki joined fellow Nittany Lions, Saquon Barkley and DaeSean Hamilton as Nike athletes. Jason Cabinda, Grant Haley, Troy Apke, Brendan Mahon and Saeed Blacknall have also appeared in mock drafts.
