When it comes to the best tight end in the NFL, many would say it would come down to Rob Gronkowski and Travis Kelce, but not according to Delanie Walker of the Titans.

He believes he's the best tight end in the entire league.

“Honestly, I feel like I’m the best tight end in the league in all phases,” Walker said, via the Tennessean. “Blocking, run blocking, catching the ball, breaking tackles, stuff like that. At the end of the day, if you don’t feel like that you shouldn’t be in the league.”

He added: “Every year I try something new. I don’t eat pork, I don’t drink alcohol. That’s been helping me, keeping me fit and in shape. Just go out here and I try to bust my butt every day in the weight room, on the field, and it’s tended to work so I’m going to stick to that regimen.”

Walker finished last season with 74 catches for 807 yards and three touchdowns, while Gronkowski had 69 catches for 1,084 yards and eight touchdowns and Kelce totaled 83 catches for 1,038 yards and eight touchdowns.

While Walker may believe what he said, the numbers say otherwise.
