Noah Fant looks to be a stud tight end looking to take his game to the next level if only the Broncos can get better QB play.

Noah Fant is one of the young players on this team that seems to have a very bright future. He’s shown that even with lackluster QB play, he is a playmaker.

The Good

Fant’s athleticism is his most impressive trait as a player. He’s really been a guy who has treated his body the right way and put himself in position to be stronger, faster, and better than the defenders he matches up against.

He has the speed to do serious damage up the seams and on the outside of the formation. He also utilizes his catch radius and body to keep defenders away from the catch.

The Bad

Noah Fant isn’t the best run-blocking TE on the team by far, but I’m not sure how much we really need to count that against him when that’s very clearly not what he’s here for. Modern NFL offenses use a TE like Fant to open up the passing game.

Final Word

Noah Fant is headed into the season as the clear starting Tight End. With a boost in passing from Teddy Bridgewater, we’ll likely see an even more impressive season from Fant. He looks like a guy that has the work ethic, God-given ability, and potential to have a breakout season for the Denver Broncos.
