Several players have to prove they can adapt to the new offense or they will be gone: TE Mike Gesicki, RT Austin Jackson, and LG Liam Eichenburg. Gesicki has to show that he can block adequately. The thing is, that if Gesicki coming in only during passing downs tips the defense to the pass, McDaniels is not going to be happy as he likes to disguise every play he runs.

I say all the time – like I said previously, it’s adapt or die, year-to-year basis, you have to prove it every year," Smythe said. "But with (Gesicki), if he can show that he can produce in one offense last year, another offense this year and be productive overall as a tight end, the price is just going up. So that’s what I tell him every day. If he can continue on a positive trend path, it’s just going to pay dividends in the long run for him. I’m excited for him.”

Gesicki can push a defender off the ball route but doesn’t really have the build to hold a block

Isn't it largely about leverage and technique? I understand that a lanky frame makes it harder to get that leverage advantage but it's not like we need him to be a mauler. Just being adequate would be enough to keep the defenses honest when he's in.
