Still though big fat DT run out of gas at Mile High. Broncos always seem to go for the more athletic ones like Wolfe, the tweeners. I had Wolfe on my list of players Broncos would look at last yr and many people thought I was crazy.
But they like players like that, ones that can move around with really high motors.
So IMO if they go DT it will be a physically fit one with a trememdous reputation for playing hard every down. I haven't read up on this yrs draft to know who those guys are yet but IMO they won't be changing their way of thinking.
They will look for fast linebackers and athletic front 7 guys in general.
Sounds like Sheldon Richardson to me, though he may be gone before we pick.
