GESICKI

Gesicki’s potential can be easily found by looking at his combine numbers. With a 4.54 second 40, a 41.5” vertical, and a 10’ 9” broad jump, he’s got all the athleticism to be a top TE in the NFL. Combine that  with his 2 dropped passes across 126 receptions, a whopping 98.5% catch rate, it should be asked, why has he not brought it all together? Well, he showed flashes last year and it was enough to get himself ranked in the top 6 TEs on the season, but the production was extremely inconsistent. The explanation is actually quite simple: Chan Gailey. He has a reputation for not using TEs in his offense. Before the season, the Miami Herald did a piece on Gailey’s offense and said, “The tight end has actually been something of an afterthought in the Gailey offense in [most] instances” (Salguero). Gailey is now gone and paired with a second-year Tua with no bonafide top target on the team, Gesicki has every opportunity to be a top 5 TE this season.
