Much has been written about New England's dynamic duo at tight end. There was even a push to give Aaron Hernandez and Rob Gronkowski a collective nickname late last season.
But is there any pair in the AFC quite as prolific as the Patriots' pass catchers?
In a recent piece ranking the AFC's best duos (note: Insider content), Scouts, Inc.'s Gary Horton says there is not, ranking Gronkowski and Hernandez as the AFC's best one-two punch.
There are a few surprises on the list, including a pair of offensive linemen for an AFC South team. But the Patriots check in with two duos on the list, with quarterback Tom Brady and wide receiver Wes Welker ranked No. 5 in the AFC by Horton.
