Who is Miami Dolphins sixth-round pick Cornell Armstrong?

Who is Miami Dolphins sixth-round pick Cornell Armstrong?

Miami now has MarQueis Gray, A.J. Derby, Thomas Duarte and the recently signed Gavin Escobar at the position, none of whom is a bonafide starter. He could easily finish his rookie season as a TE2, but he should only be drafted in dynasty leagues.

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.

Ballage rushed for 1,984 yards and 27 touchdowns in four seasons at Arizona State and added 82 receptions for 469 yards and two scores.

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

"We're thrilled with the red zone possibilities, and he's a hard matchup for people, being that big and athletic", Grier said. "The speed will open up other stuff".

Gesicki will become the second Southern Regional graduate in the National Football League, joining Cincinnati Bengals long snapper Clark Harris. He acknowledged he has room for improvement and expects to benefit from National Football League coaching.

The do-it-all defensive back played at multiple spots in Alabama's secondary previous year, finishing with 60 tackles, eight for a loss, with 1.5 sacks, 3 quarterback hurries, eight pass breakups and an interception. "He's sideline to sideline".

The 6-6, 250-pound Gesicki goes to a Miami team that really didn't have a quality tight end heading into the regular season. Former Valor Christian star Christian McCaffrey was picked in the first round past year by the Carolina Panthers.

Widely regarded as the most versatile defensive player in this year's draft, Alabama safety Minkah Fitzpatrick was first off the board for the Crimson Tide on Thursday night.

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