With Sean Payton and George Paton’s third pick in the 2023 NFL Draft, the Denver Broncos selected defensive back Riley Moss out of Iowa. Payton stated after the draft that Moss will play corner in Vance Joseph’s defense. Is that the right call? Where does Moss fit in with the Broncos cornerback room this year? Can he compete with Damarri Mathis for the team’s starting cornerback role opposite Pat Surtain II? What about his long-term future with the team? Do the Broncos deserve an A grade for drafting the talented and productive defensive back?
