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

"Mike took the adversity he had early in his career and used it as fuel to become one of the top tight ends in Penn State history", Lions coach James Franklin said via the school.

Previous year the Dolphins were last in the National Football League defending against tight ends and the selection of Baker should help with that. Last season, despite some offensive inefficiencies out of his control, Ridley still led the team with 63 receptions for 967 yards.

The 6-foot-5 Gesicki was the second tight end drafted because his athleticism, including thunderous dunks in basketball and success in volleyball.

The Dolphins hope Gesicki's deficiencies don't keep him from starting as a rookie.

"Jimmy Graham was not a good blocker coming out", Dolphins general manager Chris Grier told Miami reporters. He gives them a much needed boost as a blocker in double-tight sets in the running game.

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

The Dolphins took Alabama All-America safety Minkah Fitzpatrick in the first round with the 11th overall choice.

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

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. He also racked up five sacks, nine interceptions, and 24 passes defended.

On the final day of the draft they'll be in the market for a defensive tackle and backup quarterback.
