Julius Thomas: B

Jacob Tamme: B+

Gerell Robinson: C-

Jameson Konz: C+

Cameron Morrah: C-

Overall: B-

The Broncos tight ends are better receivers than they are blockers. Julius Thomas should not be asked to block. Ever. He is a great receiver and valuable offensive weapon, which is how he broke onto the NFL scene in 2013. Jacob Tamme is reliable. Catching what is thrown his way and trusted to be where he needs to be. As a blocker he is underrated. Robinson, somehow, is a worse blocker than Julius is and not near as good of a receiver. With an injury, he is looking like a practice squad candidate. If the Broncos carry a fourth TE, odds are on Konz. Konz looks to be the second best blocking TE on the roster. In addition to that, he is a solid receiver, but struggles to get separation. Morrah looks on his way out. He did catch a touchdown, but it was on an easy catch and run. Outside of that he really stood out in a negative way.
