Denver’s third-round draft pick in 2022, tight end Greg Dulcich, showed flashes of brilliance when healthy last season. Dulicich missed the first five games of the season and later missed the final two games of the year due to injury. In the 10-game window that he did play, Dulcich hauled in 33 receptions for 411 yards and two touchdowns. Broncos quarterback Russell Wilsons seemingly struggled to see the middle of the field in 2023, but when the QB did look to the middle, Dulcich was often open. If Wilson has a bounce-back year under QB-friendly coach Sean Payton this season, Dulcich could be a candidate to emerge as one of the QB’s favorite targets in the middle of the field.
This list only calls for one breakout candidate, but Broncos pass rusher Baron Browning will be worth tracking on defense as well. Coming off a five-sack campaign in 2022, Browning has all the physical tools necessary to emerge as a top pass rusher in his third season. – Jon Heath, Broncos Wire
