You may not want him as a teammate, but he'd be a good partying mate. He's been spotted at night clubs often and enjoys the party scene.

Not only does he have the reputation as a partier to begin with, but he's featured in "The Hangover", which is one of the more legendary partying movies in recent memory. If you party with him long enough, you might just be able to meet his tiger.

The ageless power hitter is quite the partier. He doesn't just celebrate playoff berths with champagne showers, he can hold his own on the club scene as well.

Even though he's got a baby face, Kaepernick has a flare for the dramatic. He's young and approaching the prime of his career, and is primed to earn a pay raise soon. All of those are the ingredients for a fun party buddy.

Costume parties are no problem for Wilson, who doesn't have to do anything to his impressive facial hair. With his tattoos and crazy facial hair, Wilson's persona makes him the life of any party.

He and his Lions teammates weren't exactly partying after their disappointing 2013 season, but Stafford is constantly on the party scene. As the Golden Boy from Georgia, why not hit the party scene often?

After the Olympics, Phelps was criticized for a particular party incident. Maybe he's toned things down past then, but anytime you're the all-time gold medals leader, you're likely to be at the center of any party.

The intense Bulls center is crazy and in the best possible way. He's channeled his craziness into a positive in Chicago in the last few years, but he can still party with the best of them. With his comical antics, people are likely to pay attention to him at any get together.

Daly is known for his affection for alcohol and that has often gotten in the way of his golfing career. So while his athletic career has suffered, he's likely to be a fun party mate.

Formerly Ron Artest, World Peace has admitted to drinking beer at halftime of some of his games with the Bulls, which is a little startling. Clearly, even based on his eccentric name change, World Peace has a flare for the dramatic -- quite the combination for a buddy to party with.

5. Matt Leinart

Even though his NFL career hasn't gone as planned, Leinart is still relatively young and Southern California guy, which is appealing to quite a few. As long as none of the girls he talks to watch football, he should do just fine for himself.

People who say Barkley would be a TURBL party buddy are crazy. His eccentric personality points to the fact that he's likely the life of any party. He might not have as much energy as in his playing days, but he also doesn't have as much to worry about when partying.

3. Dennis Rodman

He had tie dye hair when playing for the Bulls in the 90s, cross-dressed frequently and has visited North Korea several times. He's certainly an interesting character if nothing else, and that would seem to make him a likely fun partier.

2. Rob Gronkowski

Even though he can't seem to stay on the field, Gronkowski seems like he's in a fraternity right now. He's generally known as a partier already and his short, sometimes comically ignorant responses to questions only further his "frat guy" appearance.

He's Johnny Football. He got kicked out of a party at his college's rival school. He's been involved in scandals and is one of the flashiest players to ever play college football. When it comes down to it, he's entering his prime and about to get big money from the NFL, and he's already a big partier. If asked which athlete you'd most like to party with, it's likely that most people would name Manziel.
