Butt has a playing style similar to a young Heath Miller when Miller starred for the Steelers. He can win against tight man coverage, but he's at his best finding open zones.

Summary

Jake Butt was a fifth-round pick in the 2017 NFL draft but he had first-round tools. A knee injury suffered in his final game at Michigan caused his draft stock to slide, and the Broncos got a potential steal when they added Butt last year. They thought he might be able to get back on the field as a rookie, but he did not make enough progress during the season to be activated and eventually landed on Injured Reserve. Butt has some Kyle Rudolph (Vikings) to his game and should become a favorite target for QB Case Keenum. Veteran Jeff Heuerman sits atop the depth chart right now for Denver, but we could see Butt take over at some point (perhaps even early) this season. (June 4)
