I think Broncos still need to look for that big ugly badass to lead the inside of our front 7. I think it could come in the form of either a nasty middle linebacker, or a big nasty DT. But we sort of lack explosion in the middle of our front 7. Vickerson, Bannan, Wolfe decent but none of them strike fear like Miller or Doom, or a Bailey in the secondary etc etc. We need to get a game changing player the patrols the middle of the defense. We are a little soft there.
I think next year will be about LBer in the first round. I like Denver's DT right now Vickerson and Bannon have been playing pretty well.

Yeah well I don't think he's going to be our starting DE next year. He will slide down to DT next year full time.

PFF is good in some ways, but I personally feel that grading interior defensive linemen is somewhat unfair. Wolfe draws in o lineman. That is his job. He has a high motor and follows the ball. He will grow--HE IS A ROOKIE, and granted he is not Von Miller; however, he is starting for us and is producing. He will continue to grow and expand on that production.

wolf not at 15 sacks and 40 tackles for loss yet lul another amateur move by Elway you never trust a player to be a gm they are dumb and Pat Bowlen's drunk ass is to blame for this mess. add this to a long list of dumb moves like signing a broke neck qb.

He also missed mini camps because of his school graduation date.

It's crazy around here, no one seems to know what the word progression means. I already see people making final judgements on what he is and will be.

He's a rookie... I'm not sure there was any rookie dlineman that was ever effective against double teams. Matter of fact, almost ALL dlineman in the league aren't effective against double teams...

Didn't they say Kuper was the worst starting left guard on the Broncos last year?

I think this has to do with his straight line ability. He is not overly athletic like a JJ Watt. I don't mind he gives a good push when asked to get after the QB

Yep. Wolfe isn't an athletic freak like Watt. Watt is 300 lbs. and runs a 4.8 forty, and a 6.88 three-cone... plus he's strong (34 bench reps)...that is unheard of.

I don't know that there has EVER been a player like J.J. Watt in the NFL.



Wolfe runs a 5.0 forty...so yeah, he will never be able to generate outside pass rush pressure. He has quick feet (for a DT), good strength, great grappling skills, and unquestioned determination. We need a guy at UT to get 50 tackles, and 7 sacks per year. Wolfe is our man. His sack against the Chargers, double-teamed, in crunch-time, was epic. Exactly the type of plays we need, to get to the SuperBowl.
