On my way home from work yesterday, I was listening to 104.3 the FAN in Denver. I was listening to “the Drive” with DMac and Big Al Williams.
It was all about the Denver Broncos and training camp. Both radio hosts were present at the team’s practices yesterday. Big Al was a member of the Broncos’ back-to-back Super Bowl Champion teams. He knows his stuff. Well, not always, but most of the time. At any rate, he knows football.
One nugget that jumped out to me was that Kayvon Webster, not Bradley Roby, was running with the first team defense, in Chris Harris, Jr’s absence.
Big Al thought that Webster looked great. That he looked confident. This is great news. Webster has the size and skill-set to be a dominant corner in the NFL.
Provided he can get through the learning curve, he could end up impacting the team in the same way as a Danny Trevathan. Everyone assumed that Roby, as a 1st round pick, would be running with the first team and playing in the nickel.
It’s still early, but apparently, the Broncos want to give Webster a long look there first, whilst Roby navigates the pitfalls of the rookie learning curve.
In today’s NFL, you can never have too many good cornerbacks. With the news that Jerome Murphy and Louis Young were tearing it up yesterday, this is shaping up to be an interesting camp at the cornerback position.
The Broncos will resume training camp today at 10:30am.
