The Denver Broncos are heading into the 2012 NFL regular season with QB Peyton Manning under center, which additional pieces was Denver able to surround him with for next season? Short answer? Not many. With seven picks in the 2012 NFL Draft, the Denver Broncos added just three offensive players and only two might help out Manning in 2012. Bronco’s head coach John Fox, a defensive minded coach, led off the NFL Draft with the Broncos first selection, making a bit of a reach.
Denver selected Cincinnati DT Derek Wolfe at number 36 overall, considered by many to be a solid, yet unspectacular three-technique tackle.
