Found August 14, 2012 on DraftAce:

Denver Broncos rookie Derek Wolfe has been climbing the depth chart and has been receiving some playing time with the first-team defense, according to the Denver Post.

Wolfe primarily played tackle at Cincinnati, but has been lining up at end in the Broncos 4-3 defense. He would appear to be best suited as a run-stuffing end in their system, but managed to record two sacks in the Broncos preseason opener. While Elvis Dumervil has one starting spot locked up, the other end position is up for grabs, with Wolfe, Jason Hunter and potentially Robert Ayers all still in the mix.

Realistically, I would expect Wolfe to be used as part of the rotation, at least early in the season. Given the Broncos depth at the position, there’s no need to force Wolfe into a full-time role right from the start.
