Former Ohio State football player Bradley Roby was made the 31st pick in the first round by the Denver Broncos at the 2014 NFL Draft.

An ESPN All-American at cornerback in 2012, Roby was named to the All-Big Ten team in 2013 by both the coaches and the media, and he was named a third-team All American by Athlon Sports.

In his redshirt-junior season, Roby tied for second on the team in interceptions with three, and led the Buckeye defense in passes defensed with 16. His 120 interception yards in 2013 rank as the fifth-highest total in school history.

Roby, who redshirted the 2010 season, started all 37 games he played in his OSU career, missing only the first and last games of the 2013 season due to a suspension and injury, respectively.

After cutting ties with 12-time Pro Bowl cornerback Champ Bailey and 2009 Pro Bowl cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, the Broncos’ roster currently features just one cornerback drafted in the first round in Aqib Talib.

Denver is scheduled to begin the 2014 season Sept. 7 at home against the Indianapolis Colts.
