Gesicki selected by Miami Dolphins in NFL Draft

Sports

Mike Gesicki became the 2nd Penn State player to be drafted in the 2018 NFL Draft after he was selected 42nd overall by the Miami Dolphins.

The former Nittany Lion TE is a matchup nightmare at 6’6 and should provide elite skill from day 1.

Gesicki had 48 receptions, 679 yards and 5 TD’s for Penn State last year.

Here is an analysis from NFL’s Lance Zierlein:

“If you are looking for a tight end who can line up and help in the running game, he’s not your guy. However, if you want a pass-catcher who can get open and has the ball skills to win against linebackers and safeties, he might be your guy. Gesicki needs to improve his play strength and his issues as a blocker could limit the amount of teams who will target him, but he has a chance to become one of the better pass catching tight ends in the league.”
