The Kansas City Chiefs most deserving of a Pro Bowl selection
Travis Kelce, Tight End
With the retirement of Rob Gronkowski, Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce became the unquestioned top tight end in the NFL this offseason. Some might quibble with the ranking of other top-tier players such as George Kittle and Evan Engram, but neither have the legacy of success, durability, consistency, or all-around game to compete with Kelce for the top slot.
While he’s had his share of drops, Kelce has still put up top tight end numbers once again: 56 receptions, 741 yards and 3 touchdowns already. Kelce is on pace to post his 4th consecutive 1,000 yard season. His receptions rank him first in the NFL this season (tied with Falcons’ tight end Austin Hooper), and his 741 yards also rank him first. In addition, his 13.2 yards per catch average place him at the top among all tight ends with at least 25 catches on the season.
There is no doubt that Kelce is deserving of being named to his 5th consecutive Pro Bowl game.
