With the 42nd pick of the 2010 NFL Draft, the New England Patriots picked Rob Gronkowski, a tight end from Arizona. Since entering the NFL, the man known simply as "Gronk" has totaled 187 receptions for 2,663 yards and 39 touchdowns. Gronkowski has set multiple NFL records, including becoming the first tight end to catch 10 or more touchdowns in each of his first three seasons.

Gronkowski set the NFL record book ablaze for tight ends in 2011, when he had 17 receiving touchdowns and 18 total TDs.
