Now, 10 games into the season, defensive tackle Brodrick Bunkley is exactly what Dawkins said he would be: a powerful presence in the middle of the defense and "just a great, great dude to be around."
The Broncos' defense continues to steadily climb out of the statistical abyss that was 2010, when Denver finished at, or near, the bottom of the NFL rankings in virtually every defensive category. During the makeover, the Broncos re-signed Champ Bailey, drafted linebacker Von Miller, got Elvis Dumervil back from injured reserve and, just as training camp opened, traded for Bunkley.
