8. Tight End

When healthy and at full potential, this position group is a top three position group on the Broncos’ roster.

As I have written and pointed out before, all of the Broncos’ top four tight ends —

Jeff Heuerman
Jake Butt
Troy Fumagalli
Noah Fant

— are former first-team All-Big Ten selections.

These guys have talent, but health has limited their effectiveness, consistency, and overall production.

The Broncos need someone to emerge this offseason, but if all four guys can stay healthy? This position group easily moves into the top three.
