Albert Okwuegbunam | Broncos TE

The Broncos designated Albert Okwuegbunam (hamstring) for return.

Okwuegbunam now has his 21-day window activated. He has the three weeks to be added to the active roster, which should happen at some point. The big tight end will be a boost to the depth in the Denver offense when he returns.

The Broncos placed Albert Okwuegbunam (hamstring) on injured reserve.

Okwuegbunam will now miss at least the next three games, so Denver’s tight end depth takes a hit behind Noah Fant.

Albert Okwuegbunam is out for the season with a torn ACL, according to multiple reports.

This is a tough blow for the rookie tight end, as he was coming on strong and making an impact as of late. Okwuegbunam's rookie year ends with 11 receptions for 121 yards and one touchdown in four games. The college teammate of Broncos quarterback Drew Lock at Missouri, Okwuegbunam should have a nice role as a complementary tight end to Noah Fant in 2021.

The Broncos have selected Missouri tight end Albert Okwuegbunam with the No. 118 overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.

Based on tools, Okwuegbunam has as much upside as any tight end in the class (he ran a 4.49 40-yard dash at 258 pounds), but had a disappointing 2019 season that made him available for the Broncos on Day 3. A pairing of the rookie and Noah Fant gives Denver perhaps the most explosive tight end duo in the league, and the weapons clearly won't be an issue for Drew Lock in 2020 and beyond. It should also help that the incoming rookie was at his best for the Missouri Tigers when Lock was still there slinging the ball around. This will likely be a better real-life add when you consider fantasy outlook, but Okwuegbunam could potentially reach TE1 value in the future if Fant ever goes down.
