The Patriots drafted Gronkowski with the 42nd pick in the second round of the 2010 NFL Draft. In 2011, Gronkowski set the single-season record for touchdowns by a tight end with 17 receiving touchdowns (and 18 overall), as well as the single-season record for receiving yards by a tight end, with 1,327. That season, he became the first tight end in NFL history to lead the league in receiving touchdowns. In his first six seasons, he had 65 receiving touchdowns; only two tight ends in NFL history have had more in their entire careers.
