The Denver Broncos gave up a lot of draft capital in the trade for Russell Wilson; a first, second, and fifth round pick, while also acquiring a fourth rounder in this year’s draft. This may look like a small price to pay if Wilson provides the elite QB play that has eluded the Broncos since 2016. Going into the 2022 NFL Draft the biggest needs for the Broncos were an edge defender, offensive tackle, and tight end. Two of the three were addressed with their first two picks in rounds two and three.
Best Selection: Greg Dulcich
Nick Bonitto and Damarri Mathis were very high on the list, but thinking of the moves the Broncos have made over the offseason, the best selection had to be Greg Dulcich. Dulcich finished as a finalist for the John Mackey award for the nation’s top tight end. With Noah Fant being part of the Russell Wilson trade, the Broncos were in need of a tight end that could go up the seams. That is essentially all Dulcic did in college over the last two seasons.
He racked up 1,242 yards and 10 touchdowns averaging 18.3 yards per reception in the process. Russell Wilson has always enjoyed sure-handed tight ends in the red zone, so don’t be surprised if we hear Dulcich’s name often this upcoming season.
