Denver Broncos Draft Ohio State Tight End Jeff Heuerman in Third Round of 2015 NFL Draft

With the 92nd pick in the 2015 NFL Draft, the Denver Broncos selected Ohio State tight end Jeff Heuerman. While he never put up gaudy numbers as a Buckeye, he’s certainly a reliable and dangerous threat on the field. Not only is he a great receiver, but a great blocker too. Heuerman will now be catching passes and blocking for one of the all-time great quarterbacks, Peyton Mannings. It’s certainly a great situation for Heuerman and he should make an impact for Denver this season. Heuerman is the second Buckeye drafted tonight, as the New York Jets drafted wide receiver Devin Smith earlier in the night. In 2014 he caught 17 passes for 207 yards and two touchdowns, but as I said the numbers don’t tell the story of Heuerman’s potential. Keep in mind he also played with an injured foot all season too. Here’s a look at your newest receiving threat, Broncos fans:

Heuerman has yet to comment on being drafted by the Broncos, but he left this sincere message back in April to Buckeye Nation. He’ll certainly be missed:

His now former coach, Urban Meyer weighed in on Heuerman being drafted:

Broncos head honcho and legendary quarterback John Elway explains why they chose to pick the Buckeye tight end:

As I said above Heuerman will be missed by Buckeye Nation. I think he’ll quickly become one of Manning’s favorite targets and should be a great addition to Denver’s offense.
