 George Kittle, San Francisco 49ers

Everyone knows George Kittle with his energetic persona and play. Kittle loves football and fans can see it from his persona and playstyle. He gives 100% of his energy on every down and is so good at his position that he may be Canton-bound shortly.

Kittle may be the best all-around tight end in the NFL, which many fans will not argue with. Some fans compare him to Rob Gronkowski, Kittle may not be as dominant as Gronk, but Kittle has similar attributes as being an elite blocker, pass catcher, and RAC (run-after-catch) ability. The only thing that's holding Kittle back is the many talented players around him, which gives Kittle fewer targets but more opportunities for those talented players around him. 

Sean McDermott knows that this will probably be the most talented offense he will face this season, and Kittle being a part of that offense makes things harder to gameplan. All of the talent on that 49ers team, and with Kittle being a part of it, this could be the hardest tight end to gameplan this season.
