7 major takeaways for Denver Broncos as OTAs come to a conclusion
Denver Broncos OTA takeaway no. 3: Greg Dulcich hype train chugging
The Greg Dulcich hype train has barely slowed down since the young stud tight end out of UCLA was selected in the 2022 NFL Draft.
Dulcich is a big body with outstanding speed and the ability to get downfield after the catch.
He proved as much in his time at UCLA and has been really impressing the Denver Broncos’ coaches and players alike.
In order to acquire Russell Wilson, the Broncos had to give up a valuable young piece of the offense in tight end Noah Fant. I think for the majority of the offseason, people assumed that Albert Okwuegbunam would be the TE1 without question, but Dulcich’s arrival has changed that.
Now, it truly feels like Dulcich could win the TE1 job outright going into training camp.
He’s proving to the coaching staff and quarterback Russell Wilson that he can pick up the offense quickly and he’s already gotten plenty of work with the top offense.
During the final portion of OTAs, Dulcich was an observer. The Broncos have exercised caution with their players dealing with dings here and there, and there’s no reason to risk long-term injury for any of these guys by forcing them out there.
Dulcich will undoubtedly be part of the next round of throwing sessions in July at Russell Wilson’s San Diego chalet and as he gains trust from QB1, he could end up being the team’s TE1 sooner than later.
