Fullback (1)

James Casey

The full back is going to be a key part to the Denver Broncos if they are going to be running a zone blocking scheme for the offense. The last time that the team had a full back on the roster was back in 2012 when Chris Gronkowski and Jacob Hester were on the roster.

The only player that I see the Broncos having on the roster as the full back is former Philadelphia Eagles tight end James Casey. The Broncos signed James Casey as a free agent this season, but was listed as a tight end during the 2014 season. With the tight end situation all but resolved, it makes sense to have James Casey as the full back, because in all honesty that is probably the best way he will make the roster. However, James Casey can be used as a tight end in a pinch.

Joe Don Duncan is the other fullback on the roster, but as of now he is a developmental project. If he can impress at training camp, there is no doubt in my mind that he will make noise this season. However, for this article, he will earn one of the spots on the team’s practice squad.
