    Harris has arguably been the most consistent corner in this era. He is elite.

    Interceptions should never be the most important thing when evaluating a CB. Catches given up, yards, and touchdowns give you a better idea of what the player is.

    I think it's awesome and credit to Fangio and Ed Donatell....Bausby chose Denver, he had other offers but wanted to go where he had the best chance to succeed

    Pretty sure he would be more bronco ROF worthy than lynch was

    CHJ is totally ROF-worthy.

    I like Bausby's size and he has great speed too, according to his pro day measures. He has gotten well seasoned over the last few years in the NFL and certainly looked better than most at the AAF level.

    6'-2" ~180-190lbs 4.35, in the 40 ... has some experience with Fangio D. Should be decent competition in TC/Preseason, has a decent chance of making the team, maybe more?

    If CHJ finishes his career here in Denver (or at least plays another 3 seasons in Denver) he should deserve ROF honors. He has been one of the best CBs the last 5 years ... 3 All pro selections - 1 starter, 2 second team - and more Pro Bowls. In 2014 he led the league in least passing yards allowed and did not give up a touchdown pass all season long, earning him a Pro Bowl selection and second team AP All-Pro honors. In fact Harris didn't allow a touchdown reception in coverage from December 1, 2013 to December 15, 2015, a span that covered 35 games (including playoffs).

    I'm 33 so didn't get to see Foley or Harden. Do remember Braxton though. Love that guy.
    IDK how common it is for a good Corner to morph into a very good Safety during his career, but Denver has four: Billy Thompson; Steve Foley; Mike Harden; and, Tyrone Braxton. For those interested in candidates for Bronco ROF, Steve Foley, who holds Denver's record for most picks, is worthy of consideration; another is TE Riley Odoms.

    I guess we will find out if Fangio and the DC can coach up talented players like Bausby and Cravens. They have the talent, but the NFL is a different animal and it will feed on your weakest link. CHJ has certainly been worth the money he's been playing for. A great value the last few years and that's saying a lot with the ridiculous contracts being handed out now days. Will he be worth the big contract the next few years? IMO, no. He should be a RoF, but a HOF size contract is more then questionable.

    Harden and Braxton weren’t very good corners, but both were good safeties

    Never thought of 4 CBs turned Safety for the Broncos forgot about Harden changing and actually I always thought Thompson was a S. I did not realize that Foley is not in the ROF, that is unfair, especially considering Lynch is with what ... 4 years with the Broncos? NOT Fair.
    Good trivia Sam!

    Gotta keep expectations in check on this one. He's already played in the league for 4 years, he was repeatably cut, and was never more than a practice squad guy.

    Yes, maybe he's grown, or maybe he just never got his shot in the NFL. But, right now, looking at his NFL history, he's nothing more than a practice squad candidate.

    He has also shown the ability to play tight coverage....find the ball and make a play on the ball.

    Seems to be a very aggressive CB. I think Fangio's staff has the ability to do well with this kind of player.

    Some videos I have found.

    I hope this young man earns a spot. But I will wait to see how he does against NFL talent.

    Watched the clips and have to say those interceptions were more about horrible throws then his ability or savvy. QBs either should have never let the ball go or placement was regrettable. Not sure he has those same opportunities against NFL QBs. and WRs.

    Also finding some of the comments about his abilities a bit overhyped. For example, where did a poster get his 40 time as 4.35? His Pro Day is listed as 4.35 wind aided, 4.74 against the wind?

    I am encouraged that Fangio knows him and likely brought him in because he thinks he can contribute. But the young man has a lot to prove to make the roster. At this point, I would be thrilled if they found a hidden gem. They certainly need it.

    For what it's worth, twenty-five of Mike Harden's thirty-eight picks came when he was playing Corner, 1983-1987. All four of his pick sixes came during that time. Tyrone Braxton had eighteen picks during his first stint in Denver (seven years) from the Corner position. In his second stint (five years) he had a bunch of picks (sixteen) from the SS spot including nine picks in 1996 when he went to the Pro Bowl. That accomplishment came at age 32 for Tyrone.

    PFF has him as the league's 3rd best corner in 2016, 2017 and 2018. And those are just the years that I bothered to check.
