Roddy White and Andre Rison were our top two wide receivers. Time to move into the tight ends!

This isn't a position with an extremely proud history, though there are great players. I loved Alge Crumpler, of course, and Jim Mitchell was a fine player for many years for the Bartkowski-era Falcons. Then there's some guy named Tony.

A note, here: This is particularly tricky because Tony Gonzalez is, inarguably, the greatest tight end in Falcons history. It's just that he happened to play almost his entire career for the Kansas City Chiefs before coming to Atlanta. Still, his three excellent seasons put him close to the top of a very weak class of tight ends, so I've included him. Your call.

Vote!

QB: Matt Ryan
