For a guy the Broncos were initially widely criticized for trading down into the second round to select, Derek Wolfe is turning into one of the main bright spots of training camp and preseason.
Wolfe has had a solid camp and in the team's first preseason game against Chicago, he picked up two quarterback sacks.
The Broncos don't have a ton of depth at the defensive tackle position so Wolfe is a guy who could come in and be a major contributor right off the bat.
“That’s why we selected him where we did. I like his progress so far in this camp with us. He’s a fabulous young man, brings a lot of toughness. The way he prepares is contagious. He’s a big, physical body, and he’s got a great skill set at rushing the passer", said an obviously impressed head coach John Fox.
Wolfe is young, but he could help give this defense the kind of demeanor it has long been searching for.
