Kansas State fullback Glenn Gronkowski to declare for NFL draft
Thursday January 28th, 2016

Kansas State fullback Glenn Gronkowski, brother of Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski, met with his brother’s team on Wednesday at the Senior Bowl, reports ESPN’s James Walker.

Glenn Gronkowski, 22, declared for the NFL draft earlier this month, forgoing his senior season for a chance to join his brother in the NFL. Glenn’s other two brothers—Dan and Chris—also played professionally but have since retired.

“That would be awesome,” Glenn Gronkowski said of playing for the Patriots. “I’ve actually never played with any of my brothers before. They’ve always been too old for me....Everyone else has played together, so to be on the same team, that would be a dream come true.”

Dan, 31, and Rob, 26, shared space on the Patriots roster in 2011, though Dan played in just five games while Rob started all 16.

Glenn Gronkowski finished 2015 with 45 yards on 11 carries with one touchdown for the 6–7 Kansas State Wildcats. He also made five receptions for 76 yards and an additional touchdown, and will play out of position at tight end in Saturday’s Senior Bowl.

The game will be aired on NFL Network at 2:30 p.m. ET on Saturday.
