One of the most important skills for a defensive back is footwork, and Fitzpatrick is able to go forwards and backwards easily.
In the first round the Miami Dolphins went with who they viewed as the best player available and scooped up a future superstar in Alabama safety Minkah Fitzpatrick. Gesicki joins an offense that averaged 17.6 points last season to rank fifth-worst in the National Football League, and he expects to help the Dolphins do better.
Fitzpatrick had a school-record four interception returns for touchdowns at Alabama and gives the Dolphins a play maker in the secondary.
The Miami Dolphins still have devoted only one first-round draft pick to the quarterback spot since 1984.
Gesicki, a 6-foot-6, 249-pounder from Stafford Township, could make an immediate impact in the NFL.

In fantasy football during the 2017 NFL season, if you had a tight end playing the Miami Dolphins, then he had to be in your starting lineup. 125 and 215 overall, respectively.
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.
Gesicki caught 57 passes during his senior season follow up a breakout year in 2016 when the New Jersey native hauled in 48 receptions. He finished his first season as a Freshman All-American and earned Freshman All-SEC honors after recording 45 tackles, two defensive touchdowns, and a blocked punt.
Gesicki was the 42nd overall pick and joins running back Saquon Barkley as Penn Staters to hear their name called thus far in this year's draft.
