.
1. Rob Gronkowski, New England Patriots: 1327 yards and 17 TDs (plus a rushing score). Gronk is ridiculous. He got paid, but I don’t think that will slow him.
.
2. Jimmy Graham, New Orleans Saints: Hard to argue with 1310 yards and 11 TDs. He’s become Drew Brees’ favorite target, which is always a good thing.
.
3. Vernon Davis, San Francisco 49ers: Really blossomed during the NFL Playoffs. He’s too big for defensive backs and too fast for linebackers. There are more mouths to feed offensively, but that should make it tougher to key in on Davis.
.
4. Aaron Hernandez, New England Patriots: 910 yards and seven scores. Versatile and an amazing compliment to Gronk.
.
5. Jason Witten, Dallas Cowboys: His injury concerns me a little, but I still believe he’ll still be a solid TE1
.
6. Antonio Gates, San Diego Chargers: Given his age in comparison to Gonzo I never thought he’d be a riskier option. That just isn’t the case. If he can stay healthy, he can produce. That just seems to be too big of a challenge though.
.
7. Jermichael Finley, Green Bay Packers: The potential remains, but it’s put up or shut up time if he wants to be considered elite. Staying healthy would be a start.
.
8. Tony Gonzalez, Atlanta Falcons: He just keeps on churning. Julio Jones will take on a bigger role in the offense, and Roddy will still get his so Gonzo could suffer a little, but he’s still solid.
.
9. Brandon Pettigrew, Detroit Lions: Made big strides last year catching 83 balls for 777 yards and five scores. He’s not explosive, but he’s steady.
.
10. Fred Davis, Washington Redskins: Emerged last year before his suspension. Should be a security blanket for RG3.
.
11.  Jermaine Gresham, Cincinnati Bengals:  Caught 56 passes for 596 yards and six touchdowns. Should continue to improve along with QB Andy Dalton.
.
12.  Dustin Keller, New York Jets:  Five TDs in each of the past two years, but his yardage grew to 815 last year. He’ll be better off as long as Tebow doesn’t take over the QB gig.
.
13.  Brent Celek, Philadelphia Eagles:  Bounced back from a disappointing 2010 season with 811 yards and five scores. Sometimes gets overlooked in Philly’s offense.
.
14.  Jared Cook, Tennessee Titans:  Crazy athleticism. Blew up for 759 yards. Plenty of potential for more.
.
15.  Owen Daniels, Houston Texans:  The talent is there, but so is the injury risk. He’s a TE2 at best at this point.
