"When I was a receiver in high school and the little leagues, my coaches used to send me on crackbacks and I used to just lay people out," Broncos first-round pick
"I want to keep bringing that edge to the defense because I think every defense needs a guy like that."
Though Roby hasn't yet heard how the coaches' plan to use him in their defensive scheme, he sees himself as a strong fit when Denver deploys press-man coverage.
In addition to his aggressiveness -- a trait that also shined through with his work on special teams in college -- Roby isn't lacking for confidence.
"I think I was the best guy at my position this year (in the Draft), honestly. I'm not taking anything away from the other guys, but I think I was the best."
"It's going to make me work harder to prove that throughout this year."
Roby will be able to get started on that plan quickly, with his first day on the field for the Broncos just a week away. The Broncos' rookies will convene for a three-day minicamp starting Friday, May 16.
And Roby is already looking forward to refining the other parts of his game when the veterans arrive for the remaining camp.
