Here are some notes that caught my eye:
Cincinnati DT Derek Wolfe displayed impressive quickness off the snap and appeared to shock some of the opposing blockers with his burst. In 1-on-1 drills Wolfe even beat Mike Adams off the edge at one point and was the only player to get the best of Kevin Zeitler. Wolfe is also stronger than he looks.
Wolfe is the guy I've been watching the last few days (3 games so far.)
He checks in at 6'4-1/2 and 286 lbs.
Good length and hands.
NFLDraftscout projects him as a 5th-6th rounder but Scouts Inc. sees him as a 2nd-3rd.)
He plays mostly 34 DE and 43 DT but also lines up at NT from time to time.
Good college production.
He looks like a good fit for our scheme.
I'm still evaluating him, but a 4th round grade is probably the lowest I'd give him.
He would be of great value there, I think (at the moment.)
