Normally teams will praise a player to no ends in order to get said player to sign with them. With cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie the Denver Broncos took a different approach. Via The Bradenton Harlad  Rodgers-Cromartie says that it took the Broncos critiquing him to fully win him over. They told me about my flaws. Nobody had done that, and it impressed me,” Rodgers-Cromartie said Friday, wrapping up his three-day basketball camp at the Palmetto Boys and Girls Club. “They told me what I needed to work and how they would get me better instead of telling me about what I could do Rodgers-Cromartie was drafted in the first round by the Arizona Cardinals. After not showing the consistency of a first rounder he was traded to the Philadelphia Eagles and this past off season he signed with the Denver Broncos as a free agent. Rodgers-Cromartie has shown he has the skill necessary to be a top corner in the league. If the Broncos can get that Rodgers-Cromartie, the Broncos will see a vast improvement in their secondary that failed them in the final moments of regulation in last year’s playoffs. The Broncos are heading into the 2013 season as heavy favorites to not only win the AFC, but the Super Bowl as well. Need NFL Tickets?

DRC signed with Broncos because 'They told me about my flaws’

Recruiting typically focuses on the positive attributes of a player. The Denver Broncos recruitment of Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie did anything but that.

CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie says the Broncos defensive coaches, Peyton Manning are making him a better player: 'They told me about my flaws'

Denver Broncos cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie was used to coaches telling him about his talents, but in Denver they point out his flaws.
