  • Fitzpatrick selected by Dolphins

Without Witten, who has spent his entire 15-year career with the Cowboys, tight end is now a position of need for Dallas.

And then there was Mike Mayock's take on Gesicki's blocking, which is not great: "He is not a point-of-attack tight end in the run game".

"He's a hard match-up for people", Grier said. "He had Julius [Thomas] as you know, when he was young coming out, kind of the same thing, basketball player, so we're very excited to have him".

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.




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

Gesicki joins a Dolphins roster that is relatively low on weapons for Ryan Tannehill.

His success came in his junior and senior seasons after a hard sophomore year where he struggled with drops.

Gesicki is highest Penn State tight end selected in the NFL Draft since Kyle Brady was the 9th overall selection in 1995 by the New York Jets. He is an athletic freak and showed that with his performance at the NFL Combine. Earlier today, news broke that Cowboys tight end Jason Witten is expected to retire.
