The Denver Broncos used their first sixth round draft pick to draft Andy Janovich from Nebraska University.
The Denver Broncos traded away their fifth round pick and their Mr. Irrelevant pick (No. 253) with the Tennessee Titans. In return, they got this draft pick and the Titans’ sixth round pick in 2017.
And with this pick, the Denver Broncos selected Andy Janovich, who is a fullback out of Nebraska. It is odd to see full backs in the NFL now and days, but with Kubiak running the zone blocking scheme, it makes all of the sense in the world.
He is a former wrestler at Nebraska and has won two state wrestling titles. He played running back and linebacker as well. Here are some of his measurements. He stands six foot, one inch. Weighs in at 238 pounds. Has a 31 and 5/8 arm length and hands at 9 ¾ inches.
This is a great move for the Denver Broncos. They are in the need of a true full back and I can see the Broncos using him as a tight end and in goal line situations as well.
Here is what Lance Zierlien had to say about Janovich.
Undersized H-Back with the ability to give teams a carry here and there and do enough as a blocker to warrant consideration on the roster. He is a productive special teams player and can prove himself to be a valuable pass catcher. Once he hits camp, he has a good shot at making the roster.
I like those odds, and I am glad that the Broncos addressed the fullback situation. It is going to be key in the zone blocking scheme.
Welcome to Denver Andy Janovich.
