New England Patriots tight end is apparently the 15th best player in the NFL

At least that was the sentiment passed forward by NFL Network, as they have been unveiling their annual "Top 100 Players" rankings this week and slotted the All-Pro tight end in at number 15.

Gronkowski is the highest ranking tight end on the list, through the first 90 selections, with players 1-10 yet to be released.

The 29-year-old put together a dominant year in 2017, catching 69 balls for 1,084 yards and eight touchdowns. He also received All-Pro honors for the four time in his career.

Some might say the 15th overall spot is too low for the dominant blocker and pass catcher. Putting it simply, there's not a team out there that would pass up a chance at adding the Patriots captain to their roster.
