Gronk and Graham won't get the nod over Witten. He will be eligible for the HoF probably before those guys retire. He has been in the league 7 years longer than those guys. It won't be a choice between either Witten and Gronk/Graham. It will probably be a choice between Witten and Gates as they are contemporaries.
I don't think Vernon Davis has a chance. It is not too early to speculate about his chance at the HoF. He is already 7 years into his career and is only 2 years younger than Witten. His production is far off the pace of Witten and is not likely to improve dramatically with the 49ers.
