The Miami Dolphins used the first of their two fourth-round selections in the 2018 NFL Draft to add Durham Smythe, tight end, Notre Dame. The pick gives Miami a run-blocking tight end as they double down on the position after picking pass catching tight end Mike Gesicki in the second round on Friday.

Smythe will be a blocking tight end. He only caught 28 passes in four seasons with Notre Dame, picking up 381 yards with six touchdowns. He will be the true in-line tight end, while Gesicki will be spread out toward the slot more often.
