Dolphins nab Penn State's Gesicki in NFL Draft's 2nd round

Alabama defensive back Minkah Fitzpatrick reacts after being picked by the Miami Dolphins with the 11th selection of the 2018 NFL Draft at AT&T Stadium

The Miami Dolphins had a hole at tight end after cutting eight-year veteran Julius Thomas.

The Dolphins selected Gesicki, a standout tight end from Penn State, in the second round of the National Football League draft Friday. A basketball and volleyball star in high school in Manahawken, N.J., Gesicki is a multitalented athlete. He is also the first Nittany Lion tight end to be selected since Jesse James went in the 5th round of 2015 NFL Draft to the Steelers.

No possibility over transfer of Kathua case outside JK: Legal experts
Subsequently two prime accused in the case - Sanji Ram and Vishal Jangotra - approached the SC opposing the transfer of the trial. Chaudhary said his clients do not have faith in police investigation and the probe should go to CBI .

He had a career-high nine receptions and 174 yards with a touchdown against Arkansas this past season and caught a touchdown pass in the Aggies' win over Utah State in the Arizona Bowl in December. "Move the chains on third down and then his speed will open up other stuff on the field for you".

Gesicki is freakishly athletic.

Cowboys' Jerry Jones: Jason Witten hasn't made a 'final decision' on retirement
The Cowboys have made an attempts to draft Witten's successor a handful of times, with no promising figures emerging yet. Witten was drafted by the Cowboys in the third round of the 2003 NFL Draft after a college career at Tennessee .

Gesicki turned heads at the National Football League scouting combine in Indianapolis in early March, running the 40-yard dash in 4.54 seconds and posting a 41.5-inch vertical jump. While he possesses supreme athleticism for the position, he admitted that he must improve as a run blocker.

Gesicki said he visited the Dolphins recently and quickly felt he would be a good fit on a team that very much needs a receiving threat at tight end. The Dolphins will be able to get mismatches with him routinely, and his ability in the passing game will easily offset his inability to generate a surge as a run blocker.
