Broncos' Marshall: I'm the best coverage linebacker in the league

Denver's defense boasts some tough cover men in Chris Harris Jr. and Aqib Talib.

Brandon Marshall thinks his name should be on that list, too. The linebacker took to Twitter to rate his own coverage skills.

At first glance, that seems bold. But when healthy, Marshall actually is an amazing cover linebacker -- Pro Football Focus graded him as the best in the NFL this preseason. He had nine passes defensed and an interception last year, too.

Those numbers could be tough to come by again. Marshall will slide inside in Denver's new 3-4 defense, where he'll be asked to defend the run more than the pass.
