    "Glenn is probably the best athlete out of them all in that he's the quickest one," Gordie said. "He's the strongest one at his age. His hand-eye coordination is the best of them all. He's a very smart kid, too. Overall, he's the best athlete, for sure, and he learned from his brothers growing up, his mental toughness. He has no fear."

    Glenn Gronkowski could be best of the bunch

    Unfortunately Fullbacks have a hard time getting playing time in the NFL these days.


    If he's as good as Gord says, he should switch to Tight End like big brother Rob.

    He played WR in high school, my understanding is that he fulfills a FB/TE hybrid role

    He was listed as a fullback in the 2012 recruiting class information released by K-State, but he is described as a tight end on the official roster. My guess is he'll be somewhere in between. Think of him as an old-school H-back.

    As a wide receiver at Williamsville North High School, Gronk caught 53 passes for 762 yards and 11 touchdowns during his 2010 senior season before grayshirting in 2011 to gain weight for his conversion to his new position.

    Sounds like a Hernandez kind of guy to me. Of course, using Gronkowski to describe the two tight ends would be a lot more confusing than Gronknandez.

    Missouri have a linebacker called Will Ebner. Don't think it's a relation but the name, just got to draft the name.
