With the No. 31 overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, the Broncos selected Ohio State cornerback Bradley Roby.

An early first-round prospect on size, speed and physical upside alone, Roby's stock dropped due to slight character concerns and a disappointing 2013 season in which he was too often beaten in coverage.

Now that Aqib Talib is established as the Broncos' lockdown cornerback, Roby can be eased in as a slot corner. He also provides depth with Chris Harris returning from late-season ACL surgery.

Throw in T.J. Ward as a hard-hitting box safety, and the Broncos could rival the Packers and Patriots for the league's most improved secondary.
