Denver Broncos Defense: Super Bowl 50 vs 2018
Chris Harris Jr. leads a group of cornerbacks that consists of a bunch of young guys. The oldest guy in the bunch is Brock, who is just 29-years old. Harris is a top cornerback in the league. He is a top-three corner in my book.

He should be in yours, as well. In his seven seasons, he has intercepted passes 16 times.
The best stat, however, is the one that is not recorded: How often quarterbacks choose to stay away from Harris’ zone. You know, the “No Fly Zone”.
Roby will fill the void left by Aqib Talib on the opposite side of the field from Harris Jr. Hopefully, Harris Jr. pushes Roby to be the best he can be so that the Broncos don’t lose a beat.
There will be a lot of competition in training camp for the remaining roster spots at the cornerback position. Will the Broncos choose to keep five corners? That is certainly a possibility. They could also choose to keep six.
Rios played for the Broncos last season, so I expect him to be highly considered as a guy who will make the team.
Whoever the Broncos choose to keep at the cornerback position, the production should be there. The depth at cornerback is incredible, even with the absence of Talib and I fully expect them to be the best in the league in 2018.
