Unit by Unit: Tight ends

The Denver Broncos tight end position is as strong as it has been since Shannon Sharpe retired after the 2003 season.

Starter - Daniel Graham. Backups - Tony Scheffler, Stephen Alexander, Nate Jackson, Chad Mustard.

This position is as strong as it has been since Shannon Sharpe retired after the 2003 season. Graham will be a great fit in Denver's offense. He won't catch a ton of passes - although the Broncos plan on using him in the passing game more than New England had - but having him in the lineup is like utilizing a third tackle because of his blocking skills.

Scheffler is a good complement to Graham because he has good speed and hands, but he broke his foot in an off-season practice, which set him back a bit. He could be ready for the start of training camp.

Alexander is a former starter and Jackson is a good receiver who has played a lot, so the Broncos have depth.
