Hunter Henry is the top tight end in this class, but it is a closer group at the top than many think. Henry has a very well-rounded skill-set, but there's a lot he still has to work on. With a high ceiling, but a not so low floor, Henry is probably the safest pick of the tight ends, which doesn’t hurt his draft stock. Whoever takes him will get a really solid player who can make in impact in all phases.
As for his fit with the Denver Broncos, Henry meshes perfectly with his skill-set. However, he likely will go higher than the Broncos would be willing to invest in another tight end. There is a need for additional depth, but Henry is looking like a early/mid second round pick, which would mean Denver uses a first round pick or trade up to get them.
