Patriots tight end Rob Gronwkowski has 13 TDs and is tied with Antonio Gates and Vernon Davis for the most TD catches by a tight end in a single season. 

“He definitely has the tools to be a special player and he’s done a great job early in his career already and he’s got a ton of upside,” Colts All Pro tight end Dallas Clark said of Gronkowski, who is only 22. “He definitely has a lot of raw talent to keep improving on it.”
