Last season, the Broncos’ cornerback position was decimated by injuries, and they all came at different times. Champ Bailey came into the season with a foot injury, and the Broncos wound up at some point losing Chris Harris, Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, Kayvon Webster, and Tony Carter.

Needless to say, a unit that looked like one of the best in the league going into the season turned into a real bummer of a situation. If the Broncos weren’t missing one guy, they were missing another and could have used whichever one was one the sidelines for whatever reason.

Now, John Elway and company have invested their two most precious assets — money and a 1st round draft pick — into the cornerback position to give the Broncos some much needed depth and youth at the position. Here’s a look at the Broncos’ top cornerbacks and some guys who will be competing for roster spots this year as well.
