The Broncos selected Cincinnati DL Derek Wolfe with their first pick in the draft. Wolfe, a 6-foot-2, 295-pounder, can play three- or five-technique along the defensive line, but was a surprising pick given that DTs like Michigan State's Jerel Worthy and Penn State's Devon Still remained on the board.

SBNation:

This pick fills a need for the Broncos, who lost Brodrick Bunkley to the New Orleans Saints in free agency. He'll play in a rotation that includes Kevin Vickerson, Ty Warren, Justin Bannan and Mitch Unrein. He certainly could be the young anchor on the line, especially if Ty Warren's injury-prone nature creeps up again.

Hopefully, Wolfe turns out to be an important piece of the puzzle that sets a potential championship run into motion. Adding a stout defender in the middle of the defense could be exactly what this defense needs to rise to the next level.
