In this edition of Brick, Mortar and Scrap, we take a look at the tight end position to see who can help the Broncos in 2020 and beyond.

Tight end is funny position. Depending on the team, it can be considered anything from an all-star position to just an extension of the offensive line.

For the Broncos, I think this position could be known more for the former, thanks to the first-round selection of Noah Fant in 2019. After that, there's not a ton of pizzazz behind him in the group.

Today, we take a look at the entire tight end position group and see who can add something to the team in 2020.

Let's get started.

Noah Fant

Fant's analysis is going to be short and sweet. That's because his status for 2020 is the easiest to put down.

The first round pick in 2019 had himself a fine rookie year, finishing with 40 catches for 562 yards and 3 TD's. Considering the carousel of QB's aiming the ball his way, that's not too shabby of a stat line.

If there was ever going to be a brick in this group, it would be him. Aside from the sterling draft status, Fant showed enough promise in his rookie year for Broncos Country to believe that he'll be leading this group for many years to come.

2020 Status: Brick
