20 Athletes Who Belong in a Frat House

Nothing says sports like picking out the partiers and bros from the rest. Those guys who always seem to be hitting the clubs like they have no other cares in the world. Those guys who like to blow their money on big, crazy parties instead of saving some of it in case they are out of a job one day.

We love those kind of athletes.

Let's take a look at the 20 athletes who belong in a frat house.

As one of the most outspoken and animated receivers in the NFL, Dez Bryant sometimes earns the distinction of a prima donna. That doesn't stop him from partying, however. The Cowboys had to monitor the young receiver in his first couple of years to make sure he didn't make too many mistakes while off the field.

19. Nick Young, Los Angeles Lakers

Anyone that has the nickname "Swaggy P" belongs on this list. Young, an NBA role player for the Lakers, is always seen doing some crazy stuff off the court and you can tell he'd fit right in at a frat house.

18. Colin Kaepernick, San Francisco 49ers

Quiet, modest and dedicated and three qualities that frat bros like to say they have -- even though sometimes all three are untrue. Kaepernick fits those qualities, but he has a bad boy side that basically says "I don't care" to the rest of the world. Perfect frat bro material.

17. Alexander Ovechkin, Washington Capitals

Anyone that can drink so much in the offseason and come to training camp the next season heavier and out of shape definitely earns a spot here. Vodka is Ovi's best friend.

16. DeSean Jackson, Washington Redskins

It's weird to say that Jackson is now a member of the Washington Redskins, but being released because of rumored gang ties has led to that. Jackson is a loud mouth who likes to get in other players' faces even though he would likely get beat down pretty badly.

15. Mark Sanchez, Philadelphia Eagles

Ah, the pretty boy on the list. Sanchez is perfect frat material because he cares more about his looks than the actual job that he has. Every frat has a couple of those -- heck, there might be more of those on this list.

14. Marshall Henderson, NBA Prosepct

As for guys who talk trash and get in people's faces, Marshall Henderson fits that description perfectly. Henderson even takes to fan bases when trash talking. Yes, verbally abusing innocent students -- professional frat bro.

13. Richard Sherman, Seattle Seahawks

I'm starting to see a trend on this list. Guys who can't keep their mouths shut on or off the field. Could you picture Sherman in a fraternity house? He would start so many fights because of people talking about him behind his back.

12. Rickie Fowler, PGA

Pretty boy Rickie Fowler isn't just known for caring a lot about his looks, but he's all about standing out with his quirky outfits. Only frat guys hit the links and dress so ridiculously that people's eyes hurt afterwards.

11. Patrick Kane, Chicago Blackhawks

Patrick Kane is known as a party animal. I mean, he can be seen drinking or being drunk at many public events -- he even filled the Stanley Cup with booze and drank out of it. That is what you call legendary.

10. Kyle Orton, Dallas Cowboys

Orton is always seen out at parties and events just getting drunk or taking swigs out of a bottle of Jack Daniels. He may not seem like it, but he has belonged in a frat his entire life.

9. Brian Wilson, Los Angeles Dodgers

Brian Wilson is a fiery individual who seemingly wants to pummel anyone or anything that gets in his way. The Dodgers' closer would make the perfect angry drunk frat guy for a fraternity near you.

8. Chael Sonnen, UFC

Speaking in rhymes with every insult you spew has to earn you some major points. Chael Sonnen gets those points because of his constant rhymes and insults to opponents -- rap battle at the frat, anyone?

7. Ryan Lochte, Olympic Swimmer

Yes, every frat has that guy -- or multiple guys -- who aren't the brightest. Lochte is one of those "duh" guys that just seems to always say dumb things and make people scratch their heads.

6. Cristiano Ronaldo, Soccer

Ronaldo is one of the biggest soccer stars in the world, but people don't like the way he acts on the field. He acts like he's superior to everyone and is soccer's biggest pretty boy.

5. Johnny Manziel, Cleveland Browns

Partying in Vegas, hitting the club on Halloween with a scantily-dressed girl and popping a huge champagne bottle on draft night? Yeah, those are just a few of the instances where Manziel has proven to be the biggest party animal in college football.

4. Nick Swisher, Cleveland Indians

Talk like a bro, act like a bro and look like a bro -- well, it's a bro. Nick Swisher fits all three of those categories.

Matthew Stafford loves parties on boats and taking his shirt off while drinking. He's the ultimate rager and he's still living the college life -- although he has tamed it down a bit lately since his engagement.

2. Bryce Harper, Washington Nationals

From day one, you could see that Bryce Harper is one of baseball's biggest bros. He is a jacked, tan and sometimes mohawk-wearing frat bro at heart. That's a clown statement, bro.

How can the Gronk not be No. 1 on this list? I'm pretty sure his house/mansion right now can be considered a frat house because he pays his brother -- who lives there for free -- to have a party ready for him after games. The Gronk also enjoys going to Vegas or just a random club, ripping his shirt off and dancing on anything that walks.

    Would throw Jeff Carter on that list. Guy got traded for partying too hard.
