Southern grad Mike Gesicki taken in NFL Draft

Minkah Fitzpatrick was the first Alabama player off the board during Thursday's NFL Draft when he was selected with the No. 11 pick in the first round by the Miami Dolphins.

"I'll tell you what, I'm impressed", said Greg Olsen, a three-time Pro Bowl tight end who covered the Combine for the NFL Network. Gesicki isn't a stellar blocker, but he's a great receiving tight end with a high ceiling.

As a senior, he grabbed 57 passes for 563 yards and nine TDs.

"Every kid says that coming out, and we'll see, but we're very excited to have him".

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