So what? Now go find the articles that states JDR pumped up other players who the Broncos didn't draft. Every coach is going to have an opinion, I'm willing to bet that Wolfe was not the ONLY defensive player he liked. Fact is, we simply don't know if the Broncos would have passed on Wolfe if JDR was not on the team. It helps he liked Wolfe, but that doesn't mean that the Broncos would have passed Wolfe up had JDR not been on the team.
