Dan Gronkowski impressive with the Lions

dan

As a seventh-round draft pick, Dan Gronkowski‘s chances of making a 53-man NFL roster seemed pretty remote–even if that roster belongs to your 0-16 Dee-troit Lions. And especially since the Lions drafted another tight end in the first round. But so far, it’s all coming up Milhouse for Gronkowski. The first-rounder, Brandon Pettigrew, got injured in camp, which opened the door for Dan the Man. And he’s capitalizing. In last week’s preseason win over the Colts, he caught the game-winning touchdown. And apparently, he’s been generally impressive among the Lions rookies — he’s shown he can catch a football, but needs to improve his blocking to really make a great case. He’s got one more shot to do it — tomorrow night in the team’s preseason finale. Go Dan.

    It’s great to raw talent come from Western New York. Dan has given all of us a sense of pride being from Western New York, but it is going to be interesting to see what happens when the lion face off with the bills tonight. Go Dan!
