Dolphins pick TE Arthur Lynch in fifth round

He's not exciting. He's not going to remind of Rob Gronkowski. But the Dolphins needed an in-line blocking tight end and that's what they've just gotten in the fifth round.

Miami picked Arthur Lynch from the University of Georgia with the 155th pick.

Some things:

Lynch was All-SEC as a senior.

He improved each season he played.

He was a team captain at Georgia. (Ja'Wuan James, Jarvis Landry and Billy Turner were team captains).

"To be a good football player you have to have leadership qualities," Lynch said. "You need to be a good leader on the field to have success. I have those qualities and will continue to display those qualities for the Miami Dolphins."

Lynch, 6-4 and 258, got drafted before UGA quarterback Aaron Murray.

Lynch said he patterns his game after Heath Miller and Zach Miller. He's basically more Jeron Mastrud.

Lynch said his 40-yard dash time at the Indianapolis was 4.68 hand-timed. He was in the 4.8s electronic timing.
