Wolfe is still learning, Doom is ok against the run but not ideal in a 3-4.
the personnel we have is fit for a 4-3 and while we can run a hybrid front at times we can't run a 3-4 as a the base without overhauling the DL and LB positions.

also, Elway likes the draft to improve, look at the DT's we've passed on in FA.
You're underestimating the personal we have & overestimating the move to 3-4.
Doom & miller are both prototypical 3-4 OLBs. Both have 3-4 experience. As matter of fact quite a lot of the players we have at LB have 3-4 experience. Yes we have to draft a not but to say the personel on defense isn't suited for a 3-4 isn't correct.

BTW,although I prefer a 3-4 base over a 4-3 doesn't mean we change up what we are already doing on defense.
