Denver Broncos Draft CB Roby in First Round

Posted May 8, 2014

With the 31st overall selection in the 2014 NFL Draft, the Broncos picked Ohio State cornerback Bradley Roby.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- For the fourth consecutive draft, the Broncos have gone defense with their first pick.

With the 31st overall selection in the 2014 NFL Draft, the Broncos took Ohio State cornerback Bradley Roby.

The 5-foot-11, 194-pound defensive back was a starter in all 37 games he played throughout his tenure with the Buckeyes.

For his career, he intercepted eight passes and broke up 36 more, ranking third in school history with 226 interception return yards. He returned two of those for touchdowns and scored a total of five touchdowns on defense and special teams.

At the NFL Scouting Combine, he registered a 4.39-second 40-yard dash, and told reporters that he "definitely" believes he can be a shutdown corner at the next level.

"I think that’s something I bring to the table to any team and I plan to show that to whatever team drafts me," Roby said.

He was named All-Big Ten by coaches and media and a third-team All-American by Athlons in his final collegiate season after notching 69 tackles, 16 passes defensed -- including three interceptions -- and two blocked punts.

He joins Aqib Talib as the second cornerback the Broncos have added this offseason.

After the pick, Executive Vice President of Football Operations/General Manager John Elway gave his thoughts on the newest Bronco.
