Why Dolphins fans should be excited about Mike Gesicki

Minkah Fitzpatrick selected by Miami Dolphins with No. 11 pick in NFL Draft

Minkah Fitzpatrick selected by Miami Dolphins with No. 11 pick in NFL Draft

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. Fitzpatrick has the chops to play at corner or safety, but if he was utterly dominant at one, there wouldn't be a conversation about where he should go.

Gesicki struggled in his second collegiate season, earning a reputation as a player with questionable hands.

Alabama football has now produced at least one first round pick in 10 straight drafts, joining the Miami Hurricanes as the only two programs to ever accomplish that feat. The versatile defensive back started out at Star in Alabama's nickel defense, which is its most-used formation, but also filled in at cornerback and safety, especially when Eddie Jackson's college career ended with a broken leg.

Payne became the Redskins' second straight first-round pick from Alabama after Washington picked Allen at No. 17 overall a year ago, and also reunites with former Tide linebacker Ryan Anderson, who went to the Redskins in the second round.

Fitzpatrick picked Alabama as a five-star prospect out of New Jersey and made an impact immediately in Tuscaloosa. 125 and 215 overall, respectively. In a game against Texas Tech in 2016, he ran for seven touchdowns. But he had seven sacks and a hand in six takeaways the past two seasons, and led the Buckeyes a year ago with 72 tackles. The final two seasons of his collegiate career a stark contrast to his freshman and sophomore years when Gesicki registered 24 total receptions and faced more criticism than praise.
