Broncos rookie Derek Wolfe proves a quick study

Derek Wolfe is a blur.

Whether it's making up for a lost offseason or slipping past offensive linemen, the Denver Broncos' top draft choice is giving opposing coordinators and quarterbacks more to worry about in 2012 than just Pro Bowl pass-rushers Elvis Dumervil and Von Miller.

The Broncos drafted Wolfe in the second round (36th overall) out of the University of Cincinnati. But an NCAA rule kept him from joining them until his class had graduated. So, he showed up at training camp with some catching up to do.

He quickly made up for lost time, whether it was playing inside at tackle or outside on the edge. When left defensive end Jason Hunter went down with a torn right triceps earlier this month, Wolfe moved into the starting lineup.
