With the 42nd Pick in the 2010 NFL Draft, the New England Patriots have selected Arizona TE Rob Gronkowski. The Patriots jumped ahead two spots in a trade with the Oakland Raiders. The Patriots gave the Raiders the 190th pick to move up.
The Ariona TE has had some major medical issues, but nobody can question his amazing skill set. Gronkowksi had this to say about the injury speculation. “My back is 100 percent and I don’t want to talk about it anymore.”
He blocks well and runs crisp routes. The Patriots only have one tight end on the roster that has played NFL football, the recently acquired Alge Crumpler.
Gronkowski joins Devin McCourty as 2010 Draft Picks for the Patriots.
