Blah, blah, blah, complain. Blah, blah, complain, blah, blah, blah.

I seriously wonder why you haven't been hired as a GM as much as you think you know. Clue: there isn't a person on earth, at this moment, who knows. But keep up the blah, blah complain. It's expected.

Mike Lombardi said he liked him way more than Worthy. Just TV guy opinions, but it's probably not totally divorced from FO opinions too. Either way, hope he can prove to be a solution at DT we haven't had in a while.

He was the most productive DT in the draft, and improved every year (4 sacks as a sophmore, 5 as a junior, 9.5 as a senior). He has a non-stop motor. Someone tell what isn't to love about this guy?
He can't handle double teams and sucks at clogging lanes against the run. He is a good interior pass rusher, but that was against Big East teams who are pretty talent poor. He also has the build of a 3-4 DE not a 4-3 DT. There is your explanation.

An inside pass rush would be huge.

Obviously the Broncos like him more than the other DTs.

I bet Wolfe has less than 2 sacks this year.

After the top four guys, there was a wide variance of opinion on how to group the rest of the DTs. I'd rather take a chance on a productive guy with a non-stop motor like Wolfe than someone like Worthy who doesn't always bring it.

We aren't going to use him as a two gap DT man. He'll be a UT, one gap, and try to generate interior pass rush.

I like him better than Worthy too, and Still. Wolfe has at least shown the ability to rush the passer in college, which the Broncos really haven't had such a DT in years who did that in college, much less the NFL.

Did Wolfe play in a 3-4 or 4-3 in Cincy and if it's the former will he learn the new system fast enough to start this year I seriosuly doubt it and if that's the case we better hope Ty Warren is ready to go.

Yep. Obviously. And it is obvious they are pretty stupid. Taking a 3rd/4th round player at the top of 2. PATHETIC.

Watch us take a QB @ 57.

Sounds like Plan A to me.

****ing not.

Derek Wolfe on being a starter immediately: "Absolutely. I'm not the type of guy to sit around and wait to get into the mix."
