Rob Gronkowski   #87 TE

Height: 6-6   Weight: 268   Age: 29

Born: 5/14/1989 Amherst , NY

College: Arizona

Experience: 9th season

High School: Williamsville North HS [NY]; Woodland Hills HS [Pittsburgh, PA]









Draft 2010

Pick No.42

Selected By: New England Patriots

Round: 2

Pick (Overall): 10 (42)

Pick Analysis: Gronkowski made an immediate impact when he arrived at the University of Arizona and has been a standout tight end when he has been healthy enough to stay on the field. Unfortunately he has missed a total of 16 games over the past two years due to injuries or illness. He has an elite combination of size, speed and athleticism for the position and while he lacks great downfield speed he can be an effective receiver at virtually all levels of the passing tree. He is a tough, no nonsense type of blocker but still needs some work on his blocking techniques. If he can stay healthy he could provide a team with a quality starting tight end.
