Broncos' Bradley Roby: "I just hate to lose"

Elsa

Bradley Roby is going to fit right in to the Broncos' "win now" philosophy, and that is going to make a lot of fans, coaches and teammates very happy. Not to mention the GM.

The dust has settled,  the 2014 Broncos draft is over, and Denver Broncos first round draft pick Bradley Roby is going to make a lot of fans happy. Not just with his physicality, but with his mentality.

"I'm a winner. I like to win, hate to lose," said Roby during his first Broncos' press conference Friday. The cornerback from Ohio State believes he'll bring "an edge" and a "play-making ability" to the Broncos' D that can prevent, oh say, a 43-8 scenario again.

Music to Elway's ears. And the rest of Broncos Country.

In fact, that's partly why Roby ended up signing with the Buckeyes to play defense rather than playing wide receiver for the Vanderbilt Commodores.

"I just hate to lose. That's why I'll fit in here so much." - Bradley Roby, first-round pick, 2014 NFL Draft

"They just didn't win enough for me," Roby said, adding that Vandy has turned around and become a "very good" program. "I just hate to lose. That's why I'll fit in here so much."

And in addition to playing on the same side of the ball as veterans Chris Harris Jr. and Aquib Talib, Roby is looking forward to his practice foes - Peyton Manning and company.

"That's going to be the best thing for me honestly," Roby said of going against a man he's watched and admired playing football. "You win games in practice. You can't slack any day because they are bringing their A-game every day."

Roby is also looking forward to playing under Defensive Coordinator Jack Del Rio.

"Playing for a guy like that will make me better," Roby said. "He'll get me right."

"I'm going to do whatever I can to help this team," Roby added. "God put me where I need to be, and I'm just ready to play football now."

Oh, why can't August be here already?
