PLAYERS: John Elway
TEAMS: Denver Broncos

(AP Photo/Ben Liebenberg) The Denver Broncos have selected Derek Wolfe with the 36th pick of the 2012 NFL Draft. Defensive Tackle was a position the whole world saw as a need for the Broncos and in spite of the misdirection John Elway threw around in various interviews in the weeks leading up to the draft, the Denver Broncos were doing defensive line all the way.  The moves Elway made on Thursday night proved he wasn’t willing to spend such a high draft pick with so many tackles still left on the board at twenty-five.  Instead, he moved the Broncos back eleven spots to snag an extra mid-round draft pick and still got his guy. 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. What do the rest of you Bronco fans think?
