I think somewhere in this crop of players, the Broncos will be able to find a guy who can come in and be an asset rushing the passer in his first year. I don't think we are going to get a Pro-Bowler off the bat, but not everybody is a Von Miller. Derek Wolfe accomplished big things last year as a first year player and I'm willing to bet there is a player with schematic / positional versatility in this years draft who has a unique skill set to help us get after the passer.
