2010 Pride of Detroit Community Mock Draft: Pick No. 47

Rd. # Player Pos. College
2 47 Rob Gronkowski TE
General Manager: Quez81

With the 47th pick of the 2010 Pride of Detroit Community Mock Draft, the New England Patriots select Arizona tight end Rob Gronkowski.

Here is Quez81's reasoning for the pick:

This is a great pick due to the fact that the Patriots don't have a real threat at TE; they have the aging Alge Crumpler. A solution needs to be found and they find one with Gronkowski. Gronkowski has all the tools to be the next elite TE in the NFL. He can block, is a good route runner, has good size (6'6", 258 lbs.) and has reliable hands. The knock on Gronkowski is he doesn't have a top gear and his back injury that kept him out all of last season. Yeah, I'm taking a huge gamble, but this could pay off huge if he returns to full strength.
