Von Miller impressed with Denver Broncos first round pick
The Denver Broncos selected Noah Fant in the first round of the 2019 NFL Draft and now he is impressing the team’s franchise player.
Von Miller is the franchise player and the team’s best player for the Denver Broncos. When he speaks his mind people will take notice. During his annual Football Camp, Miller mentioned that Noah Fant is the most impressive rookie to date.
Based on the physical stature and imposing features of Fant, it is really easy to see why. Fant is a explosive receiver and runner with the ball in his hands. With tight end still being a much larger need on the team than people think, it made 100 percent sense to address that position early this year.
Fant gives the Broncos much needed help for new quarterback Joe Flacco. Interestingly, every time Flacco has been in the league the team has spent their selection on a tight end. This is in large part due to the consistent success Flacco has targeting that position.
The skill player in Fant will be Flacco’s best friend. It is understandable why Fant is impressing at the same time. He represents the new wave of athletic tight end that’s taking over the NFL. Players like Travis Kelce, Evan Engram, Jimmy Graham, Zach Ertz and many others continue to dominate the game.
Because of Fant’s skill set, it makes the position rather impressive immediately. What once was a massive question mark is now a strong suit because of his addition. However, it is more of the talent Fant has to offer to the Broncos and entire league.
Again, it is not all impressive to see why Miller is blown away by Fant. With everything positive surrounding the first round pick, it seems there is a strong chance of success in first year. Maybe even Offensive Rookie of the Year consideration.
