9. Travis Kelce
Draft Details: 3rd round, 2013
Key Stat: Six consecutive seasons of 1,000+ yards
For any other franchise, tight end is hardly a position to be celebrated, but the Chiefs are alone as a team with some truly historic performers to celebrate.
It might sound crazy to put Kelce this far up on the list given that he’s still playing at such a high level, but he’s currently the best tight end in the modern game and is one of the game’s most dynamic pass catchers overall. His present run of production is unparalleled in NFL history with six consecutive seasons of 1,000 receiving yards or more and there’s reason to believe he could stretch that for another season or three.
As of right now, Kelce has 704 catches for 9,006 yards and 57 touchdowns and has made 7 straight Pro Bowl appearances. WIth Hill traded to the Dolphins this offseason, Kelce might become even more of a focal point given his trust and chemistry with Patrick Mahomes, and those numbers will likely move him up this list in time.
