Like Tiger Woods in his prime, there’s simply Gronk and the field of every other NFL tight end. His 6' 6", 265-pound frame inherently gives him a distinct advantage, but he is nimble enough to create space—not that he needs much. He has also improved as a blocker: Bill Belichick last year compared his blocking skills to that of Giants great Mark Bavaro. The only issue with Gronk is that his physicality makes him injury-prone, but hey, that’s a pretty acceptable trade-off when you get to trot out one of the most dangerous, game-changing weapons of the modern era.
