Editor’s Note: The eighth and final part in a series previewing each Broncos status group entering training camp begins Tuesday.

In his second NFL season, Broncos tight end Noah Fant increased his reception total from 40 to 62.

But something was missing and it became the basis of his off-season focus.

“Consistency,” said Fant. “I think that’s the biggest thing. If I can get those catches[and]make those blocks and do that consistently throughout the season and do that throughout the year and at my highest level of play If I live, the sky is the limit.

In 2019, the Broncos’ first round (20th overall), Fant is a fashionable choice to break out in his third season even with the quarterback uncertain.

Fant didn’t have a 100-yard receiving game last year but came out strong, catching 18 passes in the last three games.

The key to Fant would be to get him into more big-game situations.

Even though his catch total increased to 22, he only had 111 more yards (562 to 673).

Discounted from New England after the ’19 season, Beck has carved a niche as a combo fullback/tight end/special team player. He was limited to 10 matches last year (hamstrings).
