Jimmy Graham gives Brees PLENTY of reasons to celebrate Mandatory Credit: Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sports

4. Jimmy Graham

Graham’s been in the news lately because of his failed attempt at being re-classified as a Wide Receiver. For what it’s worth, he should be classified as a receiver—but even more importantly the system should change to one that measures production and not one that measures snaps. Regardless of his position, he’s a dominant weapon on the field, and pretty much always has been. Starting with his second year in the league, he’s averaged 1100 yards, 90 receptions, and 12 TDs per season.  Graham has struggled a bit with the more physical matchups, famously getting shut out by corner Aqib Talib (Graham’s struggles with a corner prove he isn’t a TE, right?).  At 6’7” and 260 pounds, Graham creates mismatches all over the field; it’s part of the reason he rarely lines up on the line like traditional TEs. Graham has a serious case to make as the best…er, pass-catching big guy in the league.  Too bad it isn’t good enough to top this list.
