5 Broncos whose jobs are in danger after the 2022 NFL Draft

2. Andrew Beck, TE/FB
A lot of Andrew Beck’s roster fit in Denver depends on whether or not the team wants to utilize a traditional fullback this season.
I feel like we’re going to see way more 12 personnel and 11 personnel this season than we are the traditional fullback, but Beck can also play tight end and special teams.
The issue is, the Broncos may have preferences elsewhere and money talks.
Beck was given just a $200,000 guarantee when he re-signed with the team this offseason. As much as some of the coaches and scouts on the team might love Beck, the Broncos also just gave an undrafted free agent a guarantee of $150,000.
I think a lot of people underrate Eric Tomlinson’s arrival. He was given $1.4 million in guarantees to sign with the Broncos this offseason.
We don’t know the extent of Eric Saubert’s deal yet, but Saubert can do many of the same things Beck can do and he’s probably a better tight end.
Then, the Broncos utilized the 80th overall pick in the 2022 NFL Draft on Greg Dulcich, further muddying the waters at this position group for guys like Beck on the back end.
Given he only got $200,000 in guarantees, we’re really going to need to see Beck make an impact as a traditional in-line tight end in order to make the final roster, otherwise I think we could see a tight end room of Albert Okwuegbunam, Greg Dulcich, Eric Tomlinson, and Eric Saubert.
