Via NFL.com's Lance Zierlein, an AFC executive was quoted as saying that Fitzpatrick is "not quite on the same level of (New York Jets) Jamal Adams when it comes to changing the entire culture of a locker room, but he is just as talented and probably more versatile". The rookie was reunited with former Florida teammate Jarvis Williams, who joined Oliver as Miami's starting safeties for the next five seasons.

With four more players taken Thursday, Alabama now has 26 first-round picks since 2008, joining Miami (1995-2008) as the only program with at least one first-round pick in 10 straight years in the Common Draft era.

Entering the week, Alabama led the nation with a total of 65 players picked since 2009, including 15 in the second round, which will start at 6 p.m. today. Former Valor Christian star Christian McCaffrey was picked in the first round past year by the Carolina Panthers.

Gesicki, a 6-foot-6, 249-pounder from Stafford Township, could make an immediate impact in the NFL. He's been a very good football player for three years.

Hayden Hurst of SC was the only tight end taken before Gesicki, going to the Ravens with the 25th pick of the first round. 125 and 215 overall, respectively. MI defensive tackle Maurice Hurst could be year one starter with massive upside immediately. 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.

Fitzpatrick had 45 receptions for 1,111 yards and 12 touchdowns, and on defense, he recorded 70 tackles and three interceptions, and helped Prep capture its first state championship since 2005.
