WATCH: Former Penn State TE Mike Gesicki doing impressive things in NFL camp
Mike Gesicki earned plenty of attention as one of the top tight ends in college football in his last two seasons at Penn State. Now, the former Lions star is turning some heads in NFL training camp.
Sunday, the Miami Dolphins tweeted out a video of their rookie tight end making an incredible one-handed grab in one-on-one coverage against a fellow rookie. It goes without saying that, if Gesicki can make plays like this on a regular basis, he’ll be a star in the NFL in no time.
