The Broncos added to the tight end room when they added Nick Vannett in free agency earlier this year. Vannett was a third-round pick out of Ohio State in 2016 but has never really played up to his potential. He was dealt to the Steelers last year and failed to make much of an impression. Vannett is huge, measuring in at 6-feet, 6-inches and he should be more of a threat because of that size. Instead, Vannett has been used more as a blocking tight end during his pro career. With only four touchdown grabs in four seasons, Vannett has not unlocked his game in the red zone either. The Broncos have a receiving tight end in starter Noah Fant. They needed a veteran presence like Vannett to back him up and serve as a blocking tight end. Essentially, the Broncos needed a tight end to replace Jeff Heuerman -- a college teammate of Vannett at Ohio State. Heuerman is still on the roster, so he and Vannett should basically be competing for the same spot. There's not much fantasy value here for Vannett in 2020. (May 10)
