The Miami Dolphins have selected tight end Hunter Long with the No. 81 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.
The Miami Dolphins have added talented tight end Hunter Long to a tight end room that already includes Mike Gesicki. A productive do-it-all tight end from Boston College, Long can function in both the run and passing games. He is an upgrade on Gesicki from a blocking perspective, which is something that should help him see meaningful snaps as a rookie. Still, this is not the best landing spot due to landing on a team that has a more talented starter and enough talent at wideout to mitigate the use of two tight end sets.
