    Our TEs are a big question mark health wise, but they are all inline TEs....Fant gives us exactly what we needed and that is a weapon that teams are going to have a hard time covering with a LB or S.

    Such a great pick! And really a good sign that our other TEs are on the right path as well.....mainly because Fant is such a different TE then what's on our roster now.

    The good news is that Munchak is on board. Blocking is a skill that can be taught. Natural talent isn't.

    Broncos selected Iowa TE Noah Fant with the No. 20 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft.

    Denver traded down with the Steelers from No. 10 to here at 20, picking up the 52nd pick in the draft and a 2020 third-rounder. Fant (6í4/249) and T.J. Hockenson formed one of the top tight end tandems in NCAA history, the former setting an Iowa record in TDs (19) at the position despite going pro early. Fant was a consensus 2018 first-team B1G pick and finished his career with 78 receptions for 1,083 yards, averaging 13.9 yards per catch. An athletic phenom, Fant destroyed the forty (4.50), vertical (39 Ĺ"), and three cone (6.81) in Indy after measuring in with an 80-inch wingspan. "He runs by everybody when you watch him," NFL Netís Daniel Jeremiah observed. Fantís inconsistent blocking and hands are his drawbacks after dropping 11-of-80 catchable targets over the past two years. Otherwise, Fantís on-field skill set is reminiscent of Aaron Hernandez.

    When was the last time we spent a high pick on a TE? Huerman is the highest I can recall and he was a late 3rd round pick.

    I think we need to disregard all other reporters next year.
    Woody probably has a direct source in the building, if not a direct line to the FO

    I hoping for the best from Fant but he reminds me of an Eric ebron. Athletically gifted but has some stone hands. 14% drop rate scares me by if they can find a way to fix that than he could be solid but teaching a guy to catch at this point will take some good coaching.

    Uh, how? This coming season is Flacco's only year of guaranteed money left on his deal. He can be cut loose after the year with no dead cap hit.
