The Broncos drafted Derek Wolfe as a defensive tackle, but during the first five days of training camp, most of his work came as a second-team defensive end. From that position he generated some edge pressure while adjusting to the fact that his bull-rush moves will rarely work in the pros.
During Monday night's walk-through session, the Broncos threw another wrinkle at Wolfe, lining him up at defensive tackle in the team's first-string nickel package.
Another wrinkle thrown into the pass-defense set was a change at linebacker, with Wesley Woodyard working next to Danny Trevathan. Joe Mays and Trevathan had taken the bulk of the snaps in the package in recent days.
Tweaks like these appear to be part of new defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio's desire to experiment with different combinations to determine what he'd like to utilize going forward.
"Right now you can't put too much stock in the depth chart," Del Rio said on Saturday. "I'm new to this staff. I'm coming in with an open mind. I'm looking to see certain things from our unit and the guys that exhibit those traits consistently will win spots in the lineup."
