Madden '13/NFL.com projection:
1,247 receiving yards, 13 touchdowns
Did I mention how insanely wrong the projects for Gronkowski were last year? I did? Well, at least we can say EA Sports learned from its mistake. Gronkowski is rated the top tight end, ahead of the Saints' Jimmy Graham, who is down for 1,139 yards and 8 touchdowns. I'd like to suggest the projection this year is conservative, but given the extraordinary depth of the Patriots' passing game and the necessity of keeping one of the great weapons in the game healthy, I'd say it's about right. Finally.
