The Broncos have added tight end Andrew Beck from the Patriots and center Corey Levin who was recently cut by the Tennessee Titans, according to 9News’ Mike Klis.

Beck is 6’3 256 and should see time as a tight end as well as fullback with Andy Janovich still recovering. He was the Patriots highest paid undrafted free agent after the 2019 NFL Draft.

The Draft Network’s Kyle Crabbs had this to say about his skillset last spring:

Andrew Beck projects as a potential TE2 in the NFL. Beck doesn’t have the athletic skill set to to “the man” in a tight end room but his effective blocking in both pass protection and in the run game will serve an NFL franchise kindly. Beck’s limited receiving upside will temper any demand for his services but Beck has the potential to carve out a notable NFL career as a depth player and a blocker in short yardage and goal to go situations.

While he was a tight end coming out, he spent Patriots camp learning fullback for Bill Belichick.

“It’s a little bit of what I did, kind of schematically, in college,” Beck said. “So, fortunately for me, I’ve got a great guy to learn behind in James Develin. It’s been kind of an easy transition with it being a little bit of what I’ve done in the past and coming in and watching someone like James do it.”

Levin was drafted by the Titans in the 6th round of the 2017 NFL draft by the Titans. NFL.com’s Lance Zierlein had this to say when Levin was coming out of Tennessee-Chattanooga

Levin would benefit from additional weight and muscle on his frame, but he does have tools to work with. He has enough athletic ability to fit with a team who wants to get their guards into space and he might have enough functional balance and core strength to hold up as a base blocker. If Levin can snap and give a team center/guard roster flexibility, he should increase his chances of sticking on a roster.

Things didn’t work out for Levin with the Titans, but he now has a chance to work under Mike Munchak and refine his game.
