The Dolphins drafted Mike Gesicki in the second round because of his incredible athleticism.
It’s something quarterback Ryan Tannehill is excited about already.
“He’s flashed a couple of times,” Tannehill said Tuesday. “I think it was last week, he made a great one-handed catch down the sideline on a deep pass. He’s young; he’s learning. He’s going to take his bumps along the way, but he works really hard."
Production from the tight end position would be a nice help for the Dolphins, the story pointed out. Due to injuries and failure to live up to expectations, tight ends Jordan Cameron and Julius Thomas did not provide much of a threat for Tannehill over the past two seasons. The tight end position as a whole can be a struggle for rookies but there's no doubting Gesicki's talent, and we have him ranked 15th on our TE list at this point.
