1. Larry Fitzgerald- 2004
How could this be anyone but Fitz at number one? The man embodies the word professional both on and off the field. He was selected third overall in the 2004 draft.
He is about to enter his 16th season in the NFL and doesn’t seem to have lost a thing. Well, maybe a step or two but there is still nothing wrong with the work ethic or his ability to catch a football.
He has finished with 100 or more receptions five times and is now third all-time in receptions with 1,303. He should surpass former NFL tight end Tony Gonzalez in 2019. Gonzalez is at 1,325 receptions.
Fitz tailed off a bit in 2018 production-wise but not by his own doing. He has managed to put up HOF numbers while continuing to usher in quarterback after quarterback.
He continues to come back not only to try and get that elusive Super Bowl ring but also because he loves the game. He is the face of the franchise.
