Green was Colin Kapernick's primary threat at Nevada but developed into a blocker and special teams contributor for the Broncos. With Julius Thomas and Peyton Manning gone, Green will earn a chance to display his pass-catching skills in Denver. His athletic ability is among the best ever measured at the NFL Combine. If he wins the starting role, he has TE1 upside.

Summary

Green had a career-high last year with 12 catches. He's a better receiver than his numbers indicate, and this may finally be the year that Green gets used the right way. He came out of Nevada in the 2011 NFL draft known as a great receiver and a work-in-progress as a blocker. Green has worked hard to become one of the best blocking TEs in the game today. With Owen Daniels released earlier this year, the Broncos could be turning to Green more than ever in 2016. We'll see if Green can beat out Jeff Heuerman for the starting TE spot in 2016. Green is currently recovering from finger surgery and will miss most of OTAs according to head coach Gary Kubiak. (May 25)

Broncos | Three Broncos cleared for camp (Wed Jul 27, 04:12 PM) - Denver Broncos TE Jeff Heuerman (hamstring, knee), TE Virgil Green (finger) and LB Brandon M. Marshall (finger) have been cleared to participate during training camp.

Our View: Marshall is good to go and should see his normal amount of work. Heuerman and Green are both going to be eased into action as camp rolls along.
