Butt tore an ACL in the Orange Bowl. He has said he could be cleared to return anywhere from mid-July to mid-October. He will most likely start the season on the PUP list.


Jake Butt could have been a first-round pick in the 2017 NFL draft had it not been for a devastating knee injury he suffered in Michigan's bowl game. The Broncos scooped him up with the first pick in the fifth round due to his tremendous upside when healthy. There's no telling when Butt will be able to come back from this injury, and the possibility remains that he'll miss the 2017 season. Butt has dynasty upside and reminds many in the scouting community of Jason Witten (Cowboys) or Kyle Rudolph (Vikings). (July 10)
