2021 Fantasy Outlook
After Denver's Week 5 bye, it appeared that there was a concerted effort to get Okwuegbunam involved in the passing game. The 2020 fourth-rounder recorded 10 catches on 14 targets, including four red zone targets, in the team's first three games after the bye. Part of that was due to an injury to Noah Fant, who missed the first game of the aforementioned stretch, but even when Fant returned in the following contest, Okwuegbunam put together his best performance, catching all seven of his targets for 60 yards. An ACL tear in Week 9 ended his rookie season early, but Okwuegbunam should be available for training camp and profiles as Denver's No. 2 tight end behind Fant. Read Past Outlooks

ANALYSIS
Okwuegbunam operated as the Broncos' No. 2 tight end in 2021, and he saw his role increase in his second year with the team. The 23-year-old played in 14 games this season, a big jump from the four games played in his rookie season. Though Noah Fant is the team's starter at the position, it's clear the team trusted Okwuegbunam to take a step forward based on his usage on 47 percent of Denver's offensive snaps this season. Both Okwuegbunam and Fant are still on their rookie contracts, so both tight ends will likely be with the team in 2022. The former has two more years on his deal, so it would not be surprising to see Okwuegbunam's role grow even more in 2022 with Fant set to become a free agent at the end of next season. The team may want to evaluate what it has in Okwuegbunam even further before determining if it will re-sign Fant in 2023. Nonetheless, the 6-foot-5, 258-pound Okwuegbunam would benefit from an upgrade at quarterback to give the entire passing game a boost for the upcoming season.

Denver's brass sought the opinion of Drew Lock before selecting his former teammate from Missouri. Okwuegbunam is an athletic marvel with 4.49-speed at nearly 260 pounds. He enjoyed his two best collegiate seasons while playing with Lock, amassing 17 receiving touchdowns, and figures to be TE3 with some red-zone upside in Year 1.
