With many teams in the NFL going to a pass-heavy offense, big wide receivers are in high demand. Because of that, the position of cornerback is becoming more and more important each season.
The Broncos saw firsthand how a great defense can be built from the outside-in when they were dominated by the Seattle Seahawk's physical secondary.
Now, the Broncos appear ready to use that same approach.
Roby is a very fast, talented cornerback who can be effective in both man-to-man and zone coverages. If he can become a starter from the opening game, the Broncos could combine him with Chris Harris and Aqib Talib to form a very strong secondary.
Whether or not Roby is an immediate starter is a big question. To see flaws in Roby's game, just watch Jared Abbrederis of Wisconsin dominate him in the Badgers' game against Ohio State last season.
In Denver, Roby will have to show that he has improved his streaky play and won't give up the big play as often as he did in college, particularly in his last season.
Fortunately for Roby, he will see one of the league's best passing offenses on a daily basis, giving him plenty of practice.
Training Camp Goal: Shadow wide receivers Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders and show the coaching staff that he has the ability to stick with them.
2014 Season Goal: Roby should have plenty of opportunities to make an impact as a rookie, but he needs to crack the starting lineup, even if it isn't in Week 1. If Roby starts at one cornerback position opposite Talib, it will allow the Broncos to use Harris as a nickelback, where he can be most effective.
But that is only part of his goal. As a first-round pick, Roby will eventually be given the chance to start. On the field he needs to follow the model of veterans like Harris and Champ Bailey.
He needs to do this by being an aggressive cornerback who isn't afraid to lower his head and make a tackle. Roby should strive for four interceptions and 40-50 tackles during his rookie campaign.
