Drafted as a cornerback out of Ohio State, the Broncos are considering moving Roby to free safety, general manager John Elway said, via The Denver Post.
"He can tackle he's tough and that safety has to be a cover guy there," Elway said. "There are a lot of different combinations you need to play because the game is changing. Instead of having a strong safety, you want both of them to play center field."
Roby had 65 tackles and two interceptions as a rookie in 2014.
Roby is coming off a performance Sunday against the Jets in which he registered three tackles and a sack of Geno Smith. He believes he has found the groove.
"I'm kind of in a rhythm on how to prepare each week, how to prepare for different receivers and things like that," he told the team website. "I think I'm a lot better. I think I have a ways to go. ... From the first game ... I'm way ahead of where I was."
Roby has recorded six passes defensed and 23 tackles in five games, none of which he started.

Last year's No. 13 Fantasy DST should finish as a Top-10 unit this year. But the group might not mesh right away. And Sunday night's game against the Colts, with a whopping over/under of 55, is going to be a shootout.
Indy gave up the 11th-fewest Fantasy points to DSTs last year (7.56 per game). Sit the Broncos DST in Week 1, if you can, then start the unit Week 2 in a much more attractive matchup against Kansas City.
Roby started all 37 games played during his career at Ohio State, totaling eight interceptions and 44 passes defensed. He was named a first-team All-Big Ten Conference selection in 2013 after recording 69 tackles (54 solo), three interceptions and 16 passes defensed for the Buckeyes.
Roby is expected to compete for a starting spot for the Broncos this season.
