George KittleTE | 49ers
San Francisco 49ers TE George Kittle reminds QB Jimmy Garoppolo a lot of Rob Gronkowski - both on and off the field - according to Vinnie Iyer of Sporting News.
'There are a lot of similarities - on the field and a little bit off the field, too. George is tremendous. The energy he brings every day, how he goes about his business - he's always having fun while he's doing it. Very similar to Gronk, they both enjoy what they do. It makes everything more enjoyable. It's fun to be around, and it's contagious. To have a guy like that makes our team so much closer as well as much better,' Garoppolo said.July 11, 2019 | 11:05 AM
Writer's Analysis: It's particularly notable because Garoppolo has been a teammate of both players. It also helps reduce any of the fear skeptical owners may have had about chemistry issues between the two since Kittle broke out in 2018 after Garoppolo was lost for the season. Kittle very much deserves to be among the top three tight ends taken in fantasy drafts this summer, but owners will need to burn a second-round pick to get him more often than not.
