Omar Bolden DB DEN 8 Months
The Broncos are considering moving S Omar Bolden to cornerback.
Bolden was a rotational safety with Denver last season, playing on a career-high 211 snaps. T.J. Ward, Rahim Moore, Quinton Carter, and Duke Ihenacho are locked in as the Broncos' top four safeties. Bolden's best chance at making the team could be as the No. 5 corner. A 2012 fourth-round pick, Bolden will remain a deep reserve if he keeps his roster spot.

According to the Denver Post, Broncos CB Omar Bolden has been converted to safety.
A 2012 fourth rounder, Bolden is in a fight for his roster spot. Bolden saw just 81 snaps on defense as a rookie, and was ineffective. Beat writer believes Bolden and veteran DB Quentin Jammer are squaring off for one roster spot.

Broncos secondary coach Corey Undlin hinted 2012 fourth-round CB Omar Bolden is competing just to keep his roster spot in 2013.
Champ Bailey, Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, and Chris Harris are locked in as Denver's top three corners. Tony Carter is No. 4, and they used a third-round pick on Kayvon Webster. "You draft a corner in Kayvon and then you bring in Aaron Hester, the free agent kid," noted Undlin. "You're in the middle of the depth chart right there. You're counting numbers and there's only so many spots."

Omar Bolden worked as the Broncos' nickel corner during offseason workouts.
A fourth-round pick in 2012, Bolden was limited to special teams and appeared in just seven games as a rookie. The Broncos are expected to give him an expanded role as their No. 3 corner this season. Quinten Jammer and Tony Carter should also see playing time in sub-defenses

Broncos VP of Football Operations John Elway anticipates 2012 fourth-round CB Omar Bolden competing for a starting job in 2013.
"You bet," Elway said. "He's a fighter. His comment to me was that he is going to come back for next season and take somebody's job." Bolden tore his ACL twice in college, but stayed healthy as a rookie while racking up ten special teams tackles. He'd battle Chris Harris and Tony Carter opposite Champ Bailey.

Broncos signed fourth-round CB Omar Bolden to a four-year contract.
Bolden is coming off his second ACL surgery, dropping his draft grade from potentially the late first round to No. 101 overall. Coach John Fox said the former Arizona State star "definitely looked like a first-round type of talent" in rookie minicamp. Bolden is expected to compete for return duties and subpackage work this season.

Broncos fourth-round pick CB Omar Bolden says he's all the way back from the torn ACL that cost him his senior season at Arizona State.
Bolden wasn't 100 percent as recently as the Combine, but has since made the final strides. Bolden is an excellent cover corner when healthy, but should see few, if any, defensive snaps as a rookie as he gets back up to football speed. An excellent kick returner for the Sun Devils, Bolden should be in the mix in the return game.
