I love it. This guy is drawing comparisons to Jason Witten and is jacked to be a Patriot. He was, by far, the best player available at a position that had a giant hole in it. I see nothing wrong with it and hope they go back to defense with their next pick.
Luv it. Brady needs a pass catching TE.
Pats dont pick again until 58. 3rd pick will be a LB.
If the backs okay then I love it
Lot of upside. Solid blocking.. needs to work on his blocking stance, but that's trivial. Downside is injury/illness and inability to adjust to poorly thrown balls, but.. that's Brady we have back there.
Seemed to enjoy his talk with Bill.
Fills a need.
Celebrating as he did must have pissed off the Jets fans.
Dude is 6'7"!
if his back is really 100%, this is a good pick.
great pick i hope we use him
It would have to be
yeah... like it a LOT. The scenes with him and his family were intense, and him coming out with the helmet instead of a jersey was great.
Major hole filled with the best available guy at a needed position...
I'm OK with it, but not thrilled. TE was clearly a need, but we could get by with JAGs too.
My concern is that we have a history of TEs with health issues and he has an injury background. I'm sure that was checked out.
If he turns into the kind of receiving weapon Watson should have been its great. If we don't use him that way, then I would have rather used the pick on D.
luv this pick..........The tight end is back,baby!
IMO the red-zone offense was a little weak last year. In addition, I thought the running game- while good was a finesse one (personal preference).
If Gronkowski can be a decent pass blocker as well, all the better.
If he pans out, great pick.
Supposedly, O'Brien wants to use the TE more in the offense this season. If true then this pick makes sense given our defensive needs.
Very happy. Addresses need with a top player (hopefully).
Thrilled with this pick
In the Pats we trust re the medical issues, and otherwise it's a pick to love.
great addition, was bummed about cincy taking Gresham ahead of us, but Gronkowski it is.
I like this pick and I already love this guy. Great to see his reaction after he was picked.
