Green is a superb combination of size, speed, and quickness. The Broncos pegged him as a blocker to Julius Thomas' receiving prowess when they were both rookies from the same draft class. Green was Colin Kaepernick's primary option at Nevada, so don't sleep on Green if the creaky Owen Daniels gets hurt again.

Summary

Green was known more for his blocking during his stint in Denver under a rookie contract, but they re-signed him this year with a very TE friendly offensive head coach - Gary Kubiak - taking the reins. Old Kubiak hand Owen Daniels is also in town and the #1 fantasy tight end, but Green has some great athletic ability to harness if the Broncos call on him as a receiver. He could be relevant by the end of the season and Green should be on your waiver wire watch list. (May 22)

Broncos | Virgil Green wants to improve (Tue Aug 18, 04:57 PM) - Denver Broncos TE Virgil Green said he needs to improve his protection after the Broncos' preseason opener against the Seattle Seahawks last week. Green said he has high expectations for his blocking and that it wasn't good at all versus Seattle. Green did succeed in the passing game, however, catching five passes, including a touchdown, in his limited playing time. Green said his route-running is better, he understands coverages better and he is having fun.
