Pro Football Focus thinks a Denver Broncos player is trending in the wrong direction during training camp.

PFF recently pointed out a “riser” and a “faller” on each NFL roster.

And George Stoia of the Denver Gazette went with tight end Greg Dulcich for the Broncos.

The reason Dulcich was chosen was mostly because of the hamstring issue he’s been battling.

Injuries are often unavoidable so I don’t think it’s necessarily fair to penalize Dulcich for missing time during training camp. He’s far from the only one right now that’s a little banged up.

But as far as the work he’s put in this summer, it’s been good. In fact, Broncos head coach Nathaniel Hackett recently noted that Dulich has been devouring the playbook and applying what he’s learned during training camp.

“He’s understanding the playbook because he’s been using so much mental time to understand it,” said Hackett last week. “But then to watch him go out there and make a natural play when he’s covered and kind of ran to get open and found the sweet spot.”

Dulcich should combine with fellow tight end Albert Okwuegbunam to replace the production of wide receiver Tim Patrick, who will miss the 2022 season with a torn ACL.
