The Broncos are one of the few NFL teams that still flirts with the idea of a fullback in today’s age. Beck is a guy that also is able to flex out and play tight end as well.
#83 Andrew Beck
Position: FB / TE
Height: 6’ 3”
Experience: 4th year
Beck was signed by the New England Patriots as an undrafted college free agent in 2019. When he was waived at the start of the season, the Broncos picked him up off waivers to replace injured Andy Janovich.
In the 2019 season Beck was suited up for 16 games, got a smattering of plays that didn’t really amount to much, but has since stuck around making the Broncos roster for three straight years.
How he fits with the Broncos
Beck is a versatile player who brings physicality to the team. Should Hackett want to bring back a smattering of 21 personnel along with his outside zone scheme, Beck is going be setting the tone for the running game up front.
I’ve always wondered about a guy like Beck making a splash with the ball in his hands, but to date that just hasn’t been in the cards. After 2019, coaches have consistently wanted other tight ends or backs to carry the rock.
Beck making the team is honestly going to be more about what Nathaniel Hackett wants to do from a personnel standpoint than it is going to be about what Beck does in training camp. While there’s always hope that Beck can make an impact as a tight end, I don’t see that really happening given the moves that the Broncos have made drafting Dulcich.
