Denver Broncos: 3 players George Paton could trade up for in 2021
Kyle Pitts, TE, Florida
I understand that the Broncos have plenty of options for Drew Lock as it stands now, including last 2019’s first-round pick in Noah Fant. However, adding a guy such as Kyle Pitts would be so much fun and could help Lock out tremendously.
Having a two-tight end set with Fant and Pitts would absolutely be dominant if the quarterback play makes a leap.
Pitts is by far the best tight end in this draft class, with his 6-foot-5, 245-pound frame. Any offense would be fortunate to have Pitts, who is listed as a tight end but really could play at wide receiver, too.
Fant was the second-most targeted player in the passing game for the Denver Broncos in 2020. Adding another security blanket for Lock could be a smart move for his growth and development.
5 former Denver Broncos still looking for work in 2021
The Denver Broncos have several former players still looking for a place to call home in 2021. How many of them will find one?
If the team is confident in keeping Lock as the starter, I feel like considering Pitts in a trade-up would be a smart move.
