13. Tony Gonzalez, 1997, Chiefs
It wasn’t easy leaving off 11-time Pro Bowler Bob Lilly, a member of two NFL All-Decade Teams. However, there’s only one Tony Gonzalez, who one could argue is the best tight end of all time. Even if no. 13 feels a little early to take a tight end, Gonzalez was surely worth it.
Somehow, Gonzalez kept his body in shape long enough to play 17 seasons, missing just two games during that time. In those 17 years, he was selected to 14 Pro Bowls, which is tied for the most all-time. More importantly, Gonzalez owns almost every other NFL record among tight ends, including receptions and yards.
