Champ Bailey: A
Champ Bailey is still one of the best cornerbacks in the NFL. Despite just two interceptions, the same number he has had three seasons in a row now, Bailey still comes up to put his helmet on a ball carrier and opposing teams still throw the other way more often than not.
Bailey was rewarded with a 12th Pro Bowl selection, an NFL record for defensive backs.
Chris Harris: A-
This is a guy who is ready to be a breakout player. Due to Tracy Porter not being able to suit up multiple times this year, Harris was given extended work and the coaching staff probably won't go back on it.
Harris had 61 tackles, three interceptions and 2.5 sacks on the season. He returned an interception 98 yards in Denver's win over Baltimore, recording the longest interception return for a touchdown in franchise history.
Tracy Porter: C-
Agreeing to a one-year contract in the offseason, Porter was one of the first free agents Denver signed. It looked like a brilliant move in the season opener against Pittsburgh when Porter intercepted a ball thrown by Ben Roethlisberger and ran it in for a 43-yard touchdown to seal the victory.
But, that may be the lone highlight in Porter's tenure as a Bronco, as he has missed 10 games this year due to various injuries.
Porter has been one of the few disappointments this season and as a result, might be looking for a new team next year.
Rahim Moore: B
Moore still needs to work on his pass coverage, but he is slowly turning into the player Denver hoped he would.
Moore finished the year with 72 tackles, one sack and one interception to go along with seven pass deflections. He is becoming the type of hard-nosed safety Denver thought they were getting when they drafted him out of UCLA. Aside from Beadles, Moore may be the next most improved player on the team.
Mike Adams: B+
With Quinton Carter going down early in the year with a season-ending injury, Adams, another free agent signing, stepped in and played very well.
Adams' 80 tackles was second most on the team and he found a way to be effective both against the pass and the run. Adams routinely came up from his safety spot to make tackles on running backs and was also good at dropping back to defend the pass, coming up with 11 pass deflections.
