Albert Okwuegbunam: More involved in 2021

Okwuegbunam finished the 2021 season with 33 catches for 330 yards and two touchdowns.

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. He 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 they have in Okwuegbunam even further before determining if they will re-sign Noah Fant in 2023. Nonetheless, the 6-foot-5, 258-pounder would benefit from an upgrade at quarterback to give the entire passing game a boost for the upcoming season.
