Kansas State fullback Glenn Gronkowski has caught the eye of the Buffalo Bills. Bills GM Doug Whaley was in Mobile, AL last week for the Senior Bowl and noticed “Baby Gronk” practicing for the North Team last week.
According to Whaley in an interview with WVIB,
“Just seeing him out there and his measurables in where he played, his biggest strength will be his versatility. Those types of guys that can carve out an eight or nine-year career. Because of game day versatility, he can be on your 46-man roster and carve out three spots.”
Gronkowski could play tight end, fullback or H-back in the NFL. He’s a big guy at 6’3, 245 pounds but he also has really good hands. He’s a good blocker and will get a spot on an NFL roster next year. Gronkowsi is expected to be a pick on the third day of the draft but his stock is improving after a week in Mobile, AL for the Senior Bowl.
At the Senior Bowl Saturday Baby Gronk showed out catching 3 passes for 47 yards, one of which was a 34 yards strike from Arkansas QB Brandon Allen in the third quarter. The K-State star was the third leading receiver for the South Team in Mobile.
Of course Gronkowski is the Patriot’s tight end Rob Gronkowski younger brother. The Bills and Patriots play twice a year as AFC East rivals and a game pitting two Gronks against each other would be fun to watch. The Patriots met with the Baby Gronk last week and we could see the two playing together if New England picks him up.
