Sheldon Richardson, Kawann Short, and Sharrif Floyd fit that role IMO.
Playing Wolfe at DE isn't effective, becaue he can't get any pressure on the outside pass rush. He's too slow. Wolfe needs to replace Bannan at UT...that's where he got all his sacks. If they drafted Montgomery, they could generate a pass rush with just a 4 man line...they have to be able to do that, especially since they are going to have to play 2 deep Safeties now that Champ is slowing down. The Broncos couldn't generate a pass rush with a 4 man line against the Ravens and paid for it.

It should be Dumervil, Wolfe, Vickerson, and Montgomery (or another true strongside DE) in the Base Defense. What they were doing last year was a gimmick that they had to do because Jason Hunter tore a muscle, and Wolfe was just a rookie... too inexperienced (in their opinion) to be a full-time starter on the inside.
