Broncos’ rookie cornerback Omar Bolden has to love the situation he is in. Denver’s fourth round draft selection, Bolden, will be competing for a starting gig in Denver this summer and has been learning the tricks of the trades from one of the best in the game — Champ Bailey.
Had the opportunity to learn a few things from Champ today just by speaking with him on the field. This will be 1 incredible journey!

Bolden, who was once considered a second round prospect before a knee injury caused him to miss his entire senior season, will be learning under veterans Bailey, Tracy Porter and Drayton Florence. That’s good company.
Along with Cassius Vaughn, Chris Harris and Syd’Quan Thompson, Bolden is just one of the young corners on Denver’s roster that will be learning under a veteran presence in the Broncos’ secondary. Hopefully the young bucks will follow in Bailey’s footsteps — emulating Champ’s 1999 rookie season in which he benefited from learning under Hall of Famers Deion Sanders and Darrell Green in Washington.
