In Tony Romo’s 10 seasons as the Cowboys’ starting quarterback Authentic Trent Brown Jersey , he had five different players top 1,000 receiving yards a total of 11 times.

Dez Bryant had three 1,000-yard seasons, Miles Austin two, Jason Witten two, Terrell Owens three and Terry Glenn one in Romo’s stint as the team’s starter.

That’s why Romo believes Dak Prescott might have a feature receiver on the team’s roster after all.

“You don’t know that they don’t have one,” Romo said on NFL Total Access, via Jon Machota of the Dallas Morning News. “There’s always someone that can come up. For me, it was Miles Austin after T.O. left, and it was the same discussion then. At the end of the day, if you put the ball in small windows and you’re aggressively putting the ball where you want, there’s going to be windows. When you have someone who is super talented, the windows are wider. If you have Julio Jones, the windows are wider Adidas Leon Draisaitl Jersey , so you don’t have to be as perfect as a quarterback.

“As Dak continues to improve and gets to the level he feels comfortable at, I think the windows don’t have to be as big. From that perspective, they just need guys to get into their spots and the ball will get there.”

Prescott is working with some of his new receivers this week in Orlando. Allen Hurns, Michael Gallup, Lance Lenoir and Deonte Thompson appeared in an Instagram photo from ESPN’s Wide World of Sports Complex.

The Miami Dolphins concede that Penn State tight end Mike Gesicki could block better. They drafted him anyway, which shows how much they like his pass-catching skills.

Gesicki was a second-round selection Friday in the Dolphins' latest attempt to fill a position that has been problematic since Adam Gase became coach two years ago.

The 6-foot-5 Gesicki was the second tight end drafted because his athleticism, including thunderous dunks in basketball and success in volleyball.

There's a reason he lasted until the 42nd overall pick, however.

"The one thing everyone talks about is him not being a great blocker," Dolphins general manager Chris Grier said. "But there are a lot of really good tight ends and pass catchers who are not great blockers. And this kid wants to be a better blocker."

In the third round Miami drafted Ohio State linebacker Jerome Baker. He'll be reunited with another former Buckeyes linebacker, Raekwon McMillan, the Dolphins' second-round choice in 2017.

The Dolphins hope Gesicki's deficiencies don't keep him from starting as a rookie. He could give Ryan Tannehill the downfield target in the middle of the field that Miami has lacked in recent years.

"He's a hard matchup for people, being that big and athletic," Grier said. "The speed will open up other stuff."

Julius Thomas and Jordan Cameron were disappointments at tight end for Miami the past two years, and they're no longer on the roster. Gesicki joins an offense that averaged 17.6 points last season to rank fifth-worst in the NFL Josh Allen Jersey , and he expects to help the Dolphins do better.

"I'm exactly where I belong," he said. "I'm excited to get to work in this offense. It can become very exciting in Miami."

Gesicki had 15 career touchdown catches at Penn State and averaged 11.5 yards per reception. He acknowledged he has room for improvement and expects to benefit from NFL coaching.

"I definitely need to continue to improve my run blocking," he said. "My best attributes are in the passing game, and I need to continue to develop on the other side."

While Gesicki's size made him an appealing choice, the 225-pound Baker is undersized. But he had seven sacks and a hand in six takeaways the past two seasons, and led the Buckeyes last year with 72 tackles.

"He has speed, and we want to get faster on defense," Grier said. "He's sideline to sideline."

Grier said the Dolphins considered using the pick to take a quarterback, but decided Baker was too good to pass up, and McMillan's assessment of his former Ohio State teammate was a factor.

"We had some insider trading with Raekwon," Grier said.

McMillan suffered a season-ending knee injury in the first exhibition game last year but is expected to start in 2018.

The Dolphins took Alabama All-America safety Minkah Fitzpatrick in the first round with the 11th overall choice. On the final day of the draft they'll be in the market for a defensive tackle and backup quarterback.
