Miami Dolphins 2023 Draft Possibility: Tight End

There seems to be only one clear-cut tight end prospect for the first round in 2023, and the Dolphins could explore taking him if Mike Gesicki is no longer around.

Gesicki signed the franchise tag this off season, tying him to Miami for another season. He has some of the best hands in the league, including those of receivers, and is one of the most familiar targets for Tua Tagovailoa now that DeVante Parker is gone. While there are weapons all over the field for the Dolphins on offense and only one ball to go around, Gesicki could benefit from lax coverages and defenses double-teaming his running mates.

If he does put up the great numbers that he is capable of, then Gesicki could become too expensive for Miami to retain. They would look to get cheaper at the position, something they could do while getting younger as well.

Michael Mayer of Notre Dame is currently the best tight end prospect on the board for 2023, and could become a very intriguing piece should the Dolphins be in need when draft time rolls around. Other players may rise up the ranks for the scouts, and there will likely be chances to take a tight end with a second-round grade with one of the three 2nd/3rd round picks that they own.
