Glenn Gronkowski declares for 2016 NFL Draft

It looks like we could have the next great pair of brothers in the NFL starting next April. New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski is undoubtedly the best at his position in the NFL and his younger brother, Glenn, will soon be joining him in the league.

After Saturday’s loss to the Arkansas Razorbacks in the Liberty Bowl, the Kansas State fullback made his decision official as he announced his intentions to declare for the draft.

“I think it’s the right time,” Gronkowski told SI.com on Saturday. “Time to move on.”

Gronkowski will likely not be the huge superstar that his older brother was and is probably a Day 3 draft pick. He will probably go the way of his brothers Chris and Dan, who both played a total of 56 games in the NFL.

During his career in Manhattan, he rushed for just 51 yards and a touchdown, but caught 31 passes for 420 yards and six touchdowns.
