Also, TEs dont just catch the ball. Gronk is 1 of the best if not the best blocking TE in the NFL. The Pats run behind him everytime they run the ball. That was 1 of the main reasons they were a top 10 rushing team last year.
I love Jimmy Graham too. But, he is not near the type of blocker and complete TE that Gronk is. I actually consider Graham a WR that just happens to be TE size. Graham might be a little better as a WR, but its damn close and could argue either 1. While Gronk is a lot better at blocking than Graham. Gronk is the best TE in the league. Its close between Gronk, Graham, and Gonazles, but Gronk is like a, extra LT in the run blocking game while Graham and Tony G struggle at times. And, Gronk is still on the same level as them as a pass catcher. But, all are phenominal players though.. I think that when its all said and done, we will be seeing 3 of the best TEs ever to play the game in them.
Also just read something that said Graham dropped the most passes in the NFL last year with 14. That could be a factor in him missing the list. But, its still BS that hes not on the list.
