Overview

With three brothers already experiencing the NFL, it seemed logical for Glenn to head to the league a year early. Rob stars at tight end for the New England Patriots, while Chris and Dan had their time in the professional ranks as well. (His oldest brorther, Gordie, played minor league baseball.) Glenn played a fullback role at Kansas State, participating in every game the last three seasons while getting starts in 20 of those 39 contests. His role as a fullback resulted in limited offensive production, but he found himself on an all-conference team each year. In 2013, he was an honorable mention pick (5-194, three TD receiving) by league coaches, the following year Gronkowski was a first team pick (5-99 receiving, TD; 4-6 rush) by coaches as well, and he finished off his career with a second-team all-conference effort (5-76 receiving, TD; 11-45 rush, TD).

Analysis

Strengths

From athletic, football family. Utilized in running game and runs with some conviction. Gets good upward hand strike at point of attack and rolls hips through contact. Hand strength to sustain his blocks. Goal line pass-catching option. Has enough vertical speed to work up the field. Saw six of his 15 career catches go for 25-plus yards.

Weaknesses

Doesn't have great feel and instincts as run blocker. Will need to bring more funk behind his pads if he wants to win iso­ blocks against NFL inside linebackers. Works within offense, but doesn't create big play opportunities on his own. Limited elusiveness as a runner.

Draft Projection

Undrafted free agent

"Maybe the name will carry the day with the public, but he's just a fullback to us. He's not 'Gronk'". -- AFC area scout

Bottom Line

When you get past his famous brother, you are left with a versatile player who isn't overly dangerous as a pass catcher or physical as a run blocker. Glenn Gronkowski has some talent and could offer some scheme versatility, but he needs to make great strides as either a blocker or pass catcher to make his own mark in the league.
