3. Rob Gronkowski, TE, New England Patriots

When he’s healthy, he’s one of the best, but he hasn’t been healthy.

Gronkowski has only managed to play in 18 games over the past two seasons, and has since been leapfrogged in value by the likes of Jimmy Graham and Julius Thomas. Julius Thomas may not actually be better than Gronk, but if he stays on the field for more games, and continues to have Peyton Manning delivering him the football, I’d be comfortable taking him over Robby G.

He’s a high risk, high reward type of pick, but with the other two tight ends just mentioned, the return of Dennis Pitta, and the potential emergence of Eric Ebron, you may want to think long and hard before you take the guy full of steel plates, yet as durable as glass.
