    Gesicki flashed some of the talent that convinced the Dolphins he was a better option in Round 2 than Dallas Goedert. But it came in a session closed to reporters.
    In the four practices open to reporters this spring, the rookie out of Penn State has been a non-factor. He has even looked lost at times.
    As a result, his reps have largely come with the backups this spring, behind returning veterans A.J. Derby and MarQueis Gray.
    Now, if the calendar read early September instead of early June, this would be a flashing red light. Instead, it's one of countless unresolved story lines as the Dolphins near their summer break.

    Why do I get the impression they are setting us up for Gesicki being a bust this year?

    Not worried. Tannehill will make sure he gets up to speed. It might take both rookies a little more time to learn the playbook, but it is way too early to be concerned about standing out.

    It's a slow news season. Minicamp isn't much to write about to begin with. The reporters didn't even get to see all of that. So now they have to write about what they didn't see .....

    Not really their fault but not much of a story.

    The media seems upset that they didn't get a Gesicki show.
    I didn't see any reports of Gesicki droppinging any balls. Perhaps they just had him running routes (no targets) and/or pass protecting to get him up to speed.

    Godert was the far more polished sure thing. We definitely took a risk and went with the potential. We'll see if it pays off.

    How do you figure? He competed against future accountants and insurance salesmen.

    Crap, I was expecting him to have mastered the offense already.

    You mean he won't be in the Hall Of Fame after his rookie year? Give me a break with this non sense. TC hasn't even started yet.

    Gesicki is a more polished route runner actually. Goedert is a more polished blocker sure

    They have obviously identified something he "can't do". Blocking was the weakness in the scouting report but correct me if I'm wrong, they don't do much blocking in minicamp. Hopefully not a big issue

    Just the eye test. His routes were more polished, he had more natural hands, he was a better blocker etc.

    Agreed though that it's hard to tell with inferior competition.
