Bonafides From 2002-2012: 9x Pro Bowler, 6x All-Pro First Team
There's not a lot of people on this list who you can call the best ever at their position, but Tony Gonzalez is one of them. Antonio Gates, Vernon Davis, Ron Gronkowski, any other TE, they all bow down to this guy until further notice. During the Complex Decade T-Gon has been downright nasty, setting the all-time records for catches in a season, catches, receiving yards, and receiving touchdowns for tight ends. He's never had elite athleticism or speed but the guy has hands for days and all you young tight ends should study him to learn how to run routes. It's hard for anybody to be as consistent as he has been and the old man is still kicking with Atlanta. You can't hate on greatness people, you just watch and admire.
