NFL Draft: Dolphins nab versatile DB Minkah Fitzpatrick with No. 11 pick

Minkah Fitzpatrick selected by Miami Dolphins with No. 11 pick in NFL Draft

Mike Gesicki became the 2nd Penn State player to be drafted in the 2018 NFL Draft after he was selected 42nd overall by the Miami Dolphins. Fitzpatrick has the chops to play at corner or safety, but if he was utterly dominant at one, there wouldn't be a conversation about where he should go.

Alabama football has now produced at least one first round pick in 10 straight drafts, joining the Miami Hurricanes as the only two programs to ever accomplish that feat.

Braves Prospect Ronald Acuna's First Career Homer Was An Absolute Moonshot
Scott Schebler and Billy Hamilton were 1-for-2 against him, while Scooter Gennett was 0-for-3 and Joey Votto was 0-for-1. Bailey hasn't faced Atlanta since the 2014 season, mostly because of multiple injuries.

Having played all over the Crimson Tide secondary the past three seasons, including at safety after a late-season injury forced a midseason move in 2016, Fitzpatrick's versatility could be seen as a benefit for the Dolphins.

Gesicki, a 6-foot-6, 249-pounder from Stafford Township, could make an immediate impact in the NFL.

India, US slide in 2018 World Press Freedom Index
Verbal abuse towards journalists is also on the increase in Europe and this is the region that respects press freedom the most. Turkey, which has jailed the highest number of journalists worldwide, is now among the 25 most repressive countries.

Despite his shortcomings as a blocker, Gesicki will have every opportunity to come in and win and win the starting tight end spot in Miami.

Smythe ended a four-year career at Notre Dame in 2017, where he made a career-high 15 catches for 244 yards and a touchdown. He's been a very good football player for three years.

Draghi Debrief: Confidence On Growth Sends The EUR/USD Higher
Economists have predicted first quarter growth of 0.5 percent, compared to 0.7 percent in the last quarter of 2017. But with the risk of a global trade war still looming, it may not make a decision until absolutely necessary.

"The 6'6" Gesicki is the highest Penn State tight end selected in the NFL Draft since Kyle Brady was taken 9th overall by the Jets in 1995. He finished his first season as a Freshman All-American and earned Freshman All-SEC honors after recording 45 tackles, two defensive touchdowns, and a blocked punt. Last season, despite some offensive inefficiencies out of his control, Ridley still led the team with 63 receptions for 967 yards.
