1. Who will be the Denver Broncos’ TE1 when the dust settles?
There seem to be a lot of people out there who think the tight end position in Russell Wilson’s offense will be irrelevant, but that couldn’t be further from the truth.
The Denver Broncos will need multiple players at tight end that can take advantage of the attention the receivers will be getting in coverage, and as of right now, they are clearly planning on a youth movement at the position.
Noah Fant, who led the team in receptions last year, is gone.
Throughout OTAs, Dulcich was the talk of the town.
Near the end of OTAs, he suffered an injury and was limited to work on the side field, and we’ll have to wait and see if his workload at camp is going to be on a pitch count, so to speak.
Both of these players are athletic. Both players are able to stretch the field.
Both players have a chance to make a massive impact in the passing game but both have question marks as blockers.
That’s where players like Eric Tomlinson and Eric Saubert can come into the mix, but neither of those guys seem to be factors as a potential TE1 at this point.
The competition will come down to Okwuegbunam and Dulcich, and the Broncos need to see consistency from both guys.
Could the Denver Broncos and Miami Dolphins come together on a trade in 2022? Let's take a look through some of the possibilities.
You love the athletic upside you have at this position but having multiple guys that play like TE2s as opposed to one or two guys that can give you TE1 type of production in the passing game could make a massive difference on this offense over time.
