  • Tight End

  • Arizona


  • Rob Gronkowski Scouting Report
    By Matt McGuire

    Strengths:
  • Long frame with good strength
  • Good route runner
  • Fluid in and out of his breaks
  • Competitive when ball is in air
  • Physical runner
  • Underrated blocker
  • Does a good job of using his hands and extending
  • Impressive straight-line speed
  • Red zone threat
  • Consistent hands and plucks the ball
  • Extremely high upside as a run blocker



    Weaknesses:
  • Very serious durability concerns (back)
  • Doesn't maximize Y.A.C.
  • Lacks some running vision in open field
  • Doesn't have top-end athleticism or agility
  • Run blocking technique a little inconsistent
  • Might have some rust as a rookie (didn't play football in 2009)

    Summary: Gronkowski is a very well-rounded tight end prospect and will likely come off the board in the second round, but if team doctors have very serious concerns with his back (and some certainly should) then he could really fall in the 2010 NFL Draft. Back issues are probably the worst kind of injury for an athlete and generally these athletes have injury problems throughout their careers. Gronkowski will never be an elite tight end in the NFL, but if he stays healthy he should certainly be a productive contributor and starter.

    Player Comparison: Kevin Boss. Boss and Gronkowski have similar frames, athleticism and receiving skills.
