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.

Gesicki is highest Penn State tight end selected in the NFL Draft since Kyle Brady was the 9th overall selection in 1995 by the New York Jets.

Gesicki boosted his National Football League draft stock with a sensational performance in Indianapolis, running a 4.54.

Earlier this week Gesicki joined fellow Nittany Lions, Saquon Barkley and DaeSean Hamilton as Nike athletes.

Saturday figures to be a busy day for Penn State as a handful of players including Marcus Allen, DaeSean Hamilton and Christian Campbell figure to hear their names called during the final four rounds.

Penn State's Mike Gesicki is expected to immediately challenge for the Miami Dolphins' starting tight end job as a rookie.
