CENTENNIAL, Colo. (CBS4) – Many players on the Broncos roster talk a big game, but linebacker Danny Trevathan might take the cake for being the most intimidating.

The team’s leading tackler in 2013 was drafted a year earlier in the sixth round, and he hinted to CBS4’s Vic Lombardi on Xfinity Monday Live that he’s always had a bit of a chip on his shoulder about that.

Trevathan missed most of last season due to leg injuries, but he’s getting healthy again and preparing for a new season with a new head coach and new defensive coordinator. And that swagger he so often displayed during his fantastic 2013 season is back. See it on display in these eight very short video clips from Xfinity Monday Live:

What position would you choose to play in the NFL if you weren’t a linebacker?

What kind of leadership do you bring to the Broncos defense?

Any particular thoughts about facing former coaches Jack Del Rio and John Fox this season?

Do the Broncos face a stiff test when the Patriots come to play in Denver in Week 12 of the regular season?

Oh yeah?

Are you excited about the new defense the Broncos are transitioning to under new defensive coordinator Wade Phillips?

Will you be making the calls on the field for the defense?

What was it like when you were finally drafted after waiting through five rounds?
