Dolphins select Mike Gesicki with No. 42 pick in 2018 NFL Draft

At Falcon, Ballage rushed for 2,690 yards and 35 touchdowns during the course of his career, including almost 1,943 and 25 scores as a senior. Gesicki is the 12th Penn State player to be drafted by the Miami and joins former Nittany Lions Mike Hull, Jordan Lucas and Cameron Wake on the Dolphins roster.

NFL Network draft guru Mike Mayock called Ballage a 225-pound "finesse back", which checks out as a highly unusual combination at the pro level.

It was not out of the realm of possibility for Gesicki to declare for last year's draft, but he instead held off and led the Lions with 57 catches and nine touchdowns as a senior. "I'm excited to get to work in this offense. So I don't know whether he was exhausted that day or whatever, but they just constantly raved about how fast this player was and we're happy to add him".

Selected as one of three finalists for the Mackey Award for National Tight End of the Year. Last season he won the Bednarik Award and Thorpe Award as the nation's top defensive player and defensive back.
