RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2014

Wolfe suffered from seizure-like symptoms in January last season, forcing the team to place him on injured reserve during the playoffs. He's back to full health again and he'll likely spend training camp trying to fight off Malik Jackson for a starting job on the defensive line opposite DeMarcus Ware. Wolfe had four sacks in 11 games last year, but three of them came in his final four games. If Ware and Von Miller become the focus for opposing offenses, Wolfe could find some extra space to get to the quarterback this season.

2013

After recording six sacks in his rookie season, Wolfe should start at defensive opposite Robert Ayers in 2013.

2012

Wolfe is a major boom-or-bust player, but his upside is undeniably high on paper for 2012. He will likely start from Week 1 after the Broncos spent the 36th overall selection on him in the 2012 draft, and he just doesn't have much competition for snaps in Denver. Wolfe is a big, strong tackle who plays with good leverage and good side-to-side range. He totaled 70 tackles (37 solo), 9.5 sacks and 21.5 tackles for loss in just 13 games for Cincinnati last year.
