C.J Fiedorowicz, TE, Iowa
 
People keep talking about this guy and comparing him physically to the Gronk.

But at the same time I don't see him listed on many draft sites despite him being a junior.

What can people tell me about him?

He has talent but really isn't like Gronk in my opinion. Has a lot of size and is athletic but isn't going to be a mismatch in the passing game or an absolutely dominant NFL blocker. Good college TE with skills that definitely translate to the NFL but I don't think he has shown he will be a dominant player in the pro's, but that is rare for a college TE to do. He has the ability to be a well rounded TE with ideal size, maybe John Carlson is a better comparison? Carlson is white too but doesn't have a Polish sounding last name like Gronk so maybe not.

How does he compare to Eifert as a prospect?

Nowhere near as NFL ready, but if Fiedo puts it together watch out.

He actually does compare really well to the Gronkowski we saw at Arizona, just not the Rob Gronkowski we see in New England. He's just been hampered by an absolutely pathetic senior campaign by Vandenberg. The hands aren't great in the passing game, but that's a concentration issue more than anything. Should improve with reps.

I strongly suspect the DAC loves this kid and he comes out. I mean, it's not like he's going to win a title next year at Iowa.

Gronk was a monster at Arizona. I haven't seen Fiedorowicz play, but comparing him to Gronk is high praise.

Looking at his stats, he only has 4 career touchdowns. Gronk had 16. That alone puts Gronk apart from this guy.
