Denver Broncos: C

Replacing both starting defensive tackles from a year ago, it wasn't a surprise that the club looked to this position with their first pick -- only that they traded out of the first and took Cincinnati's Derek Wolfe in the second round. Wolfe has the size and temperament that the coaches will love and could make an immediate impact, as could third-round pick Ronnie Hillman, an ultra-productive back whose speed and vision helped him break some of Marshall Faulk's records at San Diego State. Arizona State quarterback Brock Osweiler is a unique talent who would do well to sit and learn behind Peyton Manning. It could be another former Sun Devil, however, who sees the field first, as cornerback Omar Bolden had demonstrated the coverage and physicality necessary to earn a high selection prior to missing the entire 2011 season due to torn ACL. Watch out for third-day prospects Philip Blake (center) and Malik Jackson (defensive end) to also make impacts early in their career.
