In his second season at the University of Arizona, Rob Gronkowski set the school records for a tight end for single-game, single-season, and career receptions, yards, and touchdowns, and was named an Associated Press third-team All-American. But a back injury essentially erased his junior year of college, after which he declared for the NFL Draft. Those injury concerns caused Gronkowski to fall to the middle portion of the second round of the 2010 NFL Draft, where the New England Patriots took him with the 42nd pick. As we all know, “Gronk” quickly developed into a favorite target of quarterback Tom Brady, and perhaps the best tight end in the NFL. In 2011, Gronkowski set the single-season record for touchdowns by a tight end with 17 receiving touchdowns, as well as the single-season record for receiving yards by a tight end (1,327).
