    Any "GRONK" in this draft?

    Jets could use a Powerful 260+lbs and Towering 6'6 TE opposite Keller.

    Every team would love a Gronk, a guy who is the best all-around TE in the game

    Just like every team would love a Revis. Or a Calvin Johnson. The reason? Guys like that only come out once a decade, so I highly doubt there is anyone close to that

    I would love a guy at his size that would be a blocker but also not suck at life a la Mulligan and would be able to have soft hands to offer more versatility from that spot.

    I think Eifort has the exact build of the kind of guy that would be perfect, but as far as I know, he has too much to work on in terms of blocking

    Eifert from ND and Fleener from Stanford are my personal favs. Neither is a Gronkowski, but both are players.

    Gronkowski is very good, he is certainly not a once a decade type player though.

    Oh and this. Brady is that type of player.

    Brady helps him out a lot that's for sure. Plus the OC is switched on and uses him accordingly. Still, Gronk is a fine player and any team in the league would happily take him.

    No Gronk in this draft. Not even close.

    I like Michael Williams from Bama as a #2 blocking TE in the 4th-6th range. He's a stud blocker and a pretty good athlete for 6'6" 270

    I think he's going back to school, but definitely if he's entering the draft.

    I dont know if there is a Gronk but I was very impressed with the Stanford TEs. Any of those guys coming out?

    I know the real big one (6'6") is a Soph so he most likely isnt.

    Please explain the logic behind this, The jets need a RT, ILB (if Scott is cut)
    both safety positions, Shon Green and LT's contracts are up after this year and you have them spending 7-8 mill a year for Finley who has the same game as Keller.

    Never mind why would Finley leave Rogers for Sanchez.

    gronk has a metal plate in his back, eventually he will stop himself.

    YES- love the fuqin guy....not a downfield threat but the perfect compliment for Keller- think he goes a little earlier (3rd) if he indeed enters- though i've not heard any rumblings he will enter....

    Antonio Gates, Tony Gonzalez and Shannon Sharpe would disagree.

    Gronkowski also hasn't been afforded the benefit of playing for a decade like the above players. Receiving aside, he might be the best blocker of them all.

    Not with a straight face.
