With the 43rd pick of the 2018 NFL DRAFT the New England Patriots select
Mike Gesicki, TE, Penn State
People already been talking about Gronk being traded but if that doesn't happen, then Gronk will eventually retire in the next 2-3 years I reckon. Let's replace a mismatch as a TE with another. Gesicki is an elite talent physically and can be a nightmare with Brady and this TE friendly Patriots offense.
Gesicki is a phenomenal athlete at the tight end position, and colleges saw that aspect of his makeup while inspecting his high school career: All-American, top-15 prospect at tight end (33 receptions, 530 yards, four touchdowns receiving); New Jersey Player of the Year, school's all-time leading scorer in basketball (1,867 points) and state slam dunk contest winner; four-time letter-winner in volleyball. Penn State reeled him in for the 2014 season, playing in all 13 games (one start) in his first season (11 catches for 114 yards). He started eight of 12 games in 2015, compiling 13 throws for 125 yards and his first touchdown. Gesicki used his size, athleticism, and soft hands to benefit from the team's improvement on offense in 2016, earning honorable mention All-Big Ten notice from league coaches by starting all 14 games and finishing among the top tight ends in the country in receiving (48 receptions, 679 yard, five scores).
