This is Gronk by a large margin to me. As mentioned in prior posts, keepers are all about value to me. Sometimes that means not keeping the better player. Gronk in 12 round is 10 rounds of value, where Rice at 12 is 11 spots of value. I can almost guarantee your team will be better drafting players at #12 and #13 and pairing them with Gronk, rather than keeping Rice, drafting at #13 and whatever you get in round 12. Big picture I think your team is better keeping the value of Gronk.

To me, keeping Gronk for a 14th rounder is the way to go. You will not get Rice, but you will be able to get a quality RB at 12. I think the combination of Gronk and your first pick will be better then your combination of Rice and your 14th round pick.

I think I'd stick with Rice here. You're passing on major value but I think getting a top tier running back really cannot be made up for the way you could make up for losing out on Gronk. TE has a lot of potential to be deep this year.

Rice hands down.......get one of the top 3 backs, area of greatest weakness......then if another RB is there is Rd 2....take him.....if you can get AP, or F Jackson, or even S Jackson...take two of the top RB's......

this is a 7 player elite draft if you can get one of the 7 @ 12 you have to do it (3 qb's, 3 rb's and Calvin).......Gronk is a stud.....but due to fall... may be #3 or #4 for TE's this year......
