Denver Broncos training camp is progressing, and young players are starting to carve out their roles. Specifically, the rookie class for this year’s Broncos team is starting to get involved in the first team offense and defense, even if it’s from the most unlikely of sources.

Here’s a report on what some of this year’s rookies are up to at camp, how they are improving, and what we might expect from them going forward.


Bradley Roby

Cornerback, Ohio State

Roby has had an up-and-down camp. There was one really negative report from a radio personality in Denver that described Roby as one who looked like (and I’m paraphrasing here) someone who ran over a dog and then ran over it again. The reviews haven’t exactly been glowing, as far as Roby is concerned. That being said, Roby showed really well in run support in the Broncos’ first pre-season game, but it’s clear he’s going to need some seasoning if he’s going to make an impact in the defensive rotation as a rookie. Roby will certainly flash at times, but he can’t be expected to be overly consistent at one of the toughest positions to learn in all of the NFL. I’m not going to pass judgment on Roby just yet, but certainly there’s room for improvement.
