Broncos first pick in 2012 is Cincinnati's Derek Wolfe

Derek Wolfe, defensive tackle, Cincinnati (6-5, 300)

Wolfe is a guy who has been moving up draft boards in recent weeks. He’s a try-hard guy with a great motor and was getting a lot of pub as a potential 3-4 DE prospect. However, he will be asked to play inside for the Broncos and use his “plus” get off burst to win off the snap because he lacks the frame to consistently anchor at the point of attack vs. the run game.
