The Denver Broncos might look at defense for their first round draft pick. But if the board does not fall their way, drafting T.J. Hockenson could help.
We are just a few short days away from the 2019 NFL Draft. This will be the time where writers and analysis will be throwing out their final mock drafts and thoughts on where each team will go in the draft.
Denver is in a bit of an enigma. There are so many positions that they could go. It is impossible to know exactly who they will draft. Will they go quarterback or defense? It is tough to tell at this time. One position that has not been discussed a whole lot is tight end.
Yes, Denver could wait until the later rounds to get their tight end. But what if a play making tight end happened to be there at number ten or becomes available if they decide to trade back?
Most draft boards at this point see two tight ends going in the first round. T.J. Hockenson and Noah Fant are the most sought after ones. But is a tight end in the first round a risk or a reward? It depends on who you are asking.
If the board does not work in Denver’s favor, or if John Elway decides against drafting defense in round one, I believe T.J. Hockenson would be a solid option. Here is why I believe so.
