The best tight end currently on the Miami Dolphins roster is Mike Gesicki but how do the others rank behind him?

Mike Gesicki should be the far and away best tight end on the roster but if we are being honest, it is close, well, not that close but close enough to say that it is close. Did that make any sense? Clearly, when it comes to the Dolphins’ TE unit, Gesicki is the one that gets in the most conversation but is he really a tight end? Well, that’s close too.

Gesicki spent a lot of time split like a wide receiver so far in his career. His blocking has been slower to develop and many believe that he will do much better in the 2022 season given the coaching that has been brought in to help. In fact, it was reported in June that Gesicki has been given the task of studying George Kittle’s game film, specifically his blocking which improved over the years as well.

Gesicki needs to improve his blocking but it isn’t an end-all or a break-all if he doesn’t. His value to the Dolphins is in the passing game where he has been very good since he was drafted. Now, it’s time to take the next step.

While we have Gesicki ranked number one, here is a look at the rest of the tight ends heading into the final stretch before training camp starts later this month.
