Yes, Patrick Mahomes Believes Travis Kelce Is Better Than Rob Gronkowski

00:00 FOXBORO, Mass.
— Patrick Mahomes only can be so diplomatic.
During a conference call with New England media Wednesday, the Kansas City Chiefs quarterback was asked where he’d rank Travis Kelce among the NFL’s best tight ends.
But the young QB wasn’t about to pick against his guy.
“On my list, I would rank Kelce the best tight end in football,” Mahomes said.
“I know Gronk has been a great tight end for a long time, but I mean, I haven’t gotten to play with Gronk.
To be clear, we wouldn’t expect Mahomes to say anything different.
Patriots head coach Bill Belichick also gushed about Kelce in his press conference Wednesday, insisting the 29-year-old is “good at everything.” “He’s got good speed,” Belichick said.
Those fans would have a point, too: While Kelce rivals his Patriots counterpart in pass-catching ability, most pundits agree Gronkowski easily is the superior blocker.
He’s also found the end zone at an unrivaled rate, with 78 touchdowns in 107 career games (0.73 TDs per game) compared to Kelce’s 25 touchdowns in 69 contests (0.36 TDs per game).

“I’ve played with Kelce, and I’ve never seen anyone be able to do the things that he’s done.”

Mahomes apparently has an ally in ESPN’s Booger McFarland, who insisted on…
