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.

Ohio State CB Bradley Roby has pleaded guilty to having "physical control" of a vehicle while under the influence.

It's a non-moving violation, and Roby will complete a three-day alcohol educational class this week to resolve the matter. Two weekends ago, Roby was arrested and charged with operating a vehicle while impaired. His blood-alcohol content was a mere .008. This is the last we should hear of the situation.

Ohio State CB Bradley Roby was arrested and charged with operating a vehicle while impaired in Columbus, Ohio last weekend.

It's a misdemeanor. According to Roby's agent, his blood-alcohol content was a "negligible .008," and he was "very quickly released on his own recognizance." It's a bigger issue than it otherwise might be because Roby was accused of battery last summer, though the charges were eventually dropped. Roby is a first-round talent who could slide to day two.

Ohio State CB Bradley Roby clocked an official forty time of 4.39 at the NFL Scouting Combine.

He weighed in at 5-foot-11 1/4 and 194 pounds earlier in the week. Roby surprisingly stayed in college following a standout 2013 season, and proceeded to endure a rough 2014 in pass coverage with several draft observers noting Roby took too many plays off and began to "cruise." Roby now may fall into the second round, but is widely regarded as a first-round talent.
