    I kinda thought D-Bowe would be in there at 9 or 10. He certainly isn't top 5, but I thought he might make it in the 10. Wouldn't be shocked if he came in 11 or 12 I guess.

    He's 33/34, no longer an elite receiver. He's probably in the top 15-20 though

    I concur he is amazing but not a WR. I disagree with Graham, Davis, and the Gronk in this list

    Amazing to see no Jason Witten since he is the best TE in football..

    This isn't 2007 anymore. Graham and Gronk are clearly better

    I think this list is pretty solid, can't really argue too much.

    I'd take Nicks over White, but I'm also a Giants fan :) Glad to see no Cruz on this list, he hasn't earned that yet. I think he and Jordy Nelson are right at the top of that next tier.

    I'd take not only Witten over Gronk, or Graham, who very well could do nothing for the rest of their career. They also have had Elite QBs throwing them the ball in their short career. I'd also take Tony Gonzalez despite his age over those two.

    Also, I'm not saying Gronk/Graham are bad, they just don't have a long history of production yet like Whitten.

    Just look at those stats for Witten, he is clearly on the decline, or at least headed there soon. This isn't "who has the best career" or "who has been more productive for longer" its "who is the best RIGHT NOW", and right now clearly Graham and Gronk are the best TEs in football. I personally don't think they should be rated as high as they are, but if I had to rate them:

    Graham: 90
    Gronk: 90
    Witten: 88

    Also, while Brees and Brady are throwing Graham and Gronk the ball, they also play in systems where the ball is spread around a LOT. Romo is locked in on Witten every game, he's his favorite target and probably leads all TEs every year in the amount of times he gets the ball thrown to him.

    Not to defend their argument but Graham, Gronk, K2, and Pettigrew all had more targets than Witten last season.

    lets wait for more than 1 season to decide if he's on the decline..

    All I said was he's headed there soon. He's 30, so his best years are behind him. And Graham and Gronk are underrated blockers according to most NFL experts

    i would say he's on decline.. but you can't be certain about it bc cowboys o-line is so horrible their play trickles down to qb play, then to hb/wr/te play

    Get real. The only reason you're making an arguement for Witten is because he's on your team. Any one who knows football, knows the game would take either Graham or Gronk over Witten. Too much upside for both of those guys, especially Graham having never suffered an injury. And to throw Gonzalez in the mix, who no doubt was and possibly is the greatest TE of all time, is just laughable in 2012. You would take a 38+ y/o Gonzalez over a young guy who has huge upside and potential?? Stupid statement...No offense.
