It’s not difficult to say the Gesicki is Tagovailoa’s top target, even the former Crimson Tide quarterback has high praise for the fourth-year tight end.
Gesicki has improved as a professional in every season he has appeared and seems to be ready to be unlocked by the Dolphins. With a new and improved offensive skill group, likely the best the team has had since Gesicki has been drafted, he should find more open spaces.
Knowing that Tagovailoa has trust in the tight end makes placing him at number two on this list fairly positive. At 6-foot-6, Gesickis large frame makes him a mismatch for most safeties and corners and too athletic for certain linebackers in the league. He should once again play a major role as a RedZone target as well as a security blanket for the Tagovailoa.
His receiving skills have never been in question, and he will likely have the most prominent role of his career in the area this year, but Gesicki’s improvements as a run blocker has been the most important. If he is able to improve once again in the facet, there is no reason he should not play every snap this season.
Gesicki’s most important skill is as a receiver, but that’s exemplified by the trust Tagovailoa has in him.
