(wgrz.com)  Williamsville native Rob Gronkowski has gone to "the dark side", after the New England Patriots (from Chicago through Tampa Bay and Oakland) selected the 6-6, 264 pound tight end from Arizona in the 2nd round (42nd) of the NFL Draft.

Gronkowski, whose brother Chris is a fullback at Arizona, missed all of the 2009 season with a back injury, but he has passed all his physicals and the Patriots obviously have a high opinion of him to take him with their 2nd round pick.

Rob Gronkowski was All-Pac 10 first team and third team All America after his 2008 season at Arizona.  He has obvious size, good speed and outstanding hands and is considered a strong blocker as well.
