Broncos selected Ohio State CB Bradley Roby with the No. 31 overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft.
Roby (5-foot-11 1/4, 194) started 37 games in Urban Meyer's secondary, intercepting eight passes with 7.5 tackles for loss. His 226 career interception-return yards rank third in Buckeyes history. Roby burned a 4.39 at the Combine, adding a 38 1/2-inch vertical and 10-foot-2 broad jump. Some draft analysts ripped Roby for getting beat on double moves by Wisconsin WR Jared Abbrederis last season, but NFL GMs and coaches are more concerned with attributes, and Roby has them in spades. He's a fluid, sudden mover with quick feet who plays with a lot of physicality, especially in the run game. If coached up properly, Roby could develop into a No. 1 corner. He should line up opposite Aqib Talib, keeping a rehabbing Chris Harris (ACL) in the slot.
