3. Rob Gronkowski, Patriots
That was quick. Gronkowski's breakout sophomore campaign, where he put up 17 touchdowns and 1,327 receiving yards, accelerated his rise to stardom. Off the field, Gronk lives the life of a rock star. He's funny and earnest on top of his frat boy exterior. He's also one of the best offensive players in football. The sky's the limit for the Patriots tight end.
