B1G Player Rankings: No. 6, Bradley Roby

We’re six days from the 2013 football season kicking off. Indiana (Indiana State) and Minnesota (UNLV) get things started for the Big Ten on Thursday, Aug. 29 on BTN/BTN2Go. To help count down the days to kickoff, BTN.com is ranking the top 25 players. Join us as we count it down, from 25-1, every day.

No. 6: Bradley Roby, CB, Ohio State

Ohio State boasts the Big Ten’s elite secondary, and cornerback Bradley Roby is the best of the decorated group. A junior fresh off a season in which he earned first-team All-Big Ten honors, Roby is exactly what you need in a cornerback. He’s tremendous in pass coverage, (17 breakups, two interceptions), and he’s a willing and able tackler (63 tackles). Add it all up, and it’s easy to see why the exciting Buckeye is a hot NFL prospect. Scary thing is, his numbers may only improve this fall – despite a suspension from a July incident that will keep him out Week 1 vs. Buffalo.

2011 stats:
47 tackles; 3.5 TFL; 3 INT; 6 BU; 9 PD; 1 FF
2012 stats:
63 tackles; 2 TFL; 1 sack; 2 INT; 17 BU; 19 PD; 1 FR

Roby may be the first B10 player taken in next years draft. I’m surprised he is not in top 3.
