Here’s a good gauge of how absurdly deep the Broncos’ defense is: Denver’s third-best cornerback Bradley Roby just won AFC Defensive Player of the Week honors.
Roby, making his first start of the year in place of the injured Aqib Talib, recorded an interception, which he returned 51 yards for a touchdown, seven tackles and two pass breakups. Look at this beauty:
Roby has played 58 percent of the Broncos’ defensive snaps this season. He’s a versatile third option behind Chris Harris and Talib. Roby is capable of matching up against bigger receivers outside, or smaller, speedier guys inside.
Denver took him 31st overall in the 2014 NFL Draft.
Roby’s game against San Diego was a good example of the embarrassment of riches Denver has defensively.
