13. Travis Kelce

When you are a Tight End for the Kansas City Chiefs you can realistically only hope to be the second-best ever in franchise history due to the greatness of first ballot Hall of Famer, Tony Gonzalez.  That being said, Travis Kelce is currently the top producing Tight End in the NFL and is currently on a four year Pro Bowl streak. 

After not seeing any real playing time as a rookie, Kelce would have two straight 800 Yard receiving seasons and he would increase that in 2016 to 1,000 Yards, an exceptional total for a Tight End, which earned him a First Team All-Pro Selection.  Kelce repeated that four-digit yard mark in 2017 but in 2018 he posted career highs of 1,336 Yards and 10 Touchdown Passes, which were good enough for 10th and 6th respectively.  Along with Quarterback, Patrick Mahomes, Kelce took the Chiefs to a Super Bowl win in the 2019 Season, and had his fourth straight 1,000 Yard year.  Kelce went back to the Super Bowl in 2020, but while they lost to Tampa Bay, Kelce was again a First Team All-Pro and the top Tight End in Football.

With seven Pro Bowls to date and named to the 2010s All-Decade Team, Travis Kelce should shoot up in this ranking, an impressive feat considering how many great players competed there.
