In Response to Is Gronkowski the next great tight end?
[QUOTE]This guy was a red zone beast last season as a 22 year old rookie. It seems like hes having a great training camp so far to. Reports are that hes catching everything that comes his way and some reports even go so far to say that he has been dominating training camp. It seems like the sky is the limit for this guy and hes taking off like a damn Nasa shuttle.

premature...wait it out a few years. Dont even think hes top 5 in the league right now
Gates, Davis, Witten, Miller, Carlson
I might even put Finley up here when healthy. Though I havent seen him block, and consider him more as a WR, but hes def in the conversation. Dallas Clark, when healthy, is also up there
IF youve seen these guys play, you know theyre good. Some of their stats may not be as great, but I think thats cause of their QB
Being a great Red Zone Target is great. But as soon as he does more in the other parts of the field, Im not ready to say hes the next great...
His blocking is pretty good too though
And yes, i left Gonzalez off the list. Hes still top 10 right now, but i dont think top 5...if we're talking about career achievement...hes up top
im sure im forgetting other guys ttoo...but the point is, just wait before making a premature statement haha. Its good wishful thinking though
