ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Greg Dulcich naturally attracts eyeballs on the practice field.
The Broncos rookie tight end made his first football appearance over the weekend for Denver’s two-day rookie minicamp and impressed – at least as much as you can in a no-pads environment where the menu consists of only the NFL’s very basics – with the way he ran, moved, accelerated naturally after the catch, yadda, yadda, yadda.
C’mon. What’s the real draw?
“Have you seen his hair? I mean, wow,” first-year head coach Nathaniel Hackett marveled after the first day. “Just watching him out here, it’s flowing in the wind.”
This, mind you, is not the first time Denver’s bald rookie head coach has complimented the extremely not-bald newcomer’s cascading, curly flow. In a video produced by the team showing Dulcich arriving at the team facility after the Broncos made him the No. 80 overall selection and the third tight end picked in last month’s draft, Dulcich walked into a room and Hackett quickly enveloped him in a hug, shouting, “Oh, my God, look at that hair. Oh, my God. It’s so beautiful – one of the primary reasons why you’re here.”
During a Friday post-practice news conference, the former UCLA standout said of the mane, “It’s staying forever. You can quote that,” and he’s keeping the mustache, too.
Noted. And can you explain the mid-thigh shorts?
“They’re called shorts for a reason, right?” Dulcich said.
Good enough for his offensive…
