2016 NFL Draft: Video highlights of Denver Broncos 6th round pick Andy Janovich, a fullback out of Nebraska who also plays special teams…
The Denver Broncos have a fullback in Nebraska’s Andy Janovich, but he can do much more than just block. This is a player who can be an explosive runner when given the opportunity, and he’s also going to contribute on special teams. Here are some video highlights
My initial reactions to this guy —
This is an old-school thumper and effective inside runner that can make plays on special teams as well. I know you don’t typically like to take such a specialized position in the draft when you can typically find just as good of players after it, but the Broncos aren’t really worried about that.
This guy is a great fit for what they want to do offensively, and he can provide them yet another weapon out of the backfield. The Broncos now have a traditional fullback, an in-line TE (Jeff Heuerman), a seam-stretching TE (Virgil Green), and a number of gifted receivers that can play all over the formation.
Janovich will certainly provide the Broncos with a better inside running game, an area they really struggled in last year as they attempted using an additional offensive lineman whenever they went into bigger sets offensively. Janovich will allow them to punish teams late in games running the football.
This guy looks like he gives every ounce of effort he has on every play, and is willing to do anything to help the team win. One area where the Broncos were depleted by some of their free agent departures this year was special teams, and Janovich had 13 special teams tackles this past year.
