2018 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about MIKE GESICKI: Penn State, 6054 247 4.56. Three-year starter from Manahawkin, NJ. After a high school career that saw him dominate across the board in three sports (football/ basketball/volleyball), Gesicki had two years in a broken Penn State offense. Things started to turn around in 2016, as he combined for 105 catches for 1242 yards and 14 touchdowns. The freaky matchup nightmare started to appear on a weekly basis and he showed several flashes of dominance all over the field. His game very well translates to this era of NFL offense where tall, long, big, and fast pass catchers are on everyone’s want list. For a wiry, long-limbed athlete who weighs in at over 250 pounds, Gesicki is an excellent straight line mover with the kind of top end speed that can make a safety think twice about coming up on him too close. His body control, leaping ability, and top-tier eye/hand coordination make him the favorite in any 50/50 jump ball situation. If the ball is anywhere near him, he will be able to get his strong mitts on it. He has plus-ability after the catch. Can outrun linebackers and some defensive backs. Has a ways to go when it comes to blocking presence and lower body strength. His lateral movement as a route runner and blocker leave a lot to be desired. In a league where tights ends have become catch first and block second, he might be an attractive option to teams needing a bigger and more physical pass catcher for the middle of the field and near the end zone. 2017 stats: 57-563, 9.9 ypr, 9 TD. OSR:1/16. Second/third round. (A-34 1/8, H-10 1/4, VJ-41.5, SS-4.10).
