5. Rob Gronkowski
Like J.J. Watt, few players in NFL history have ever possessed the combination of strength and speed displayed by Patriots superhuman tight end, Rob Gronkowski. Gronk’s highlight reel is filled with incredible catches, followed by an army of defenders holding on for dear life as he drags them down the field. He looks like an oversized dad playing backyard football with his kids.
The fact that he weighs 265 pounds, runs a 4.61 in the 40-yard dash, and threw up 23 reps of 225 pounds in the bench press is a testament to his world-class athletic ability. Still not convinced? Ask any defender who’s ever tried to tackle him.
