2012 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Derek Wolfe, DT, Cincinnati

Wolfe projects as a possible 3-4 defensive end because of his height and girth. He has a good motor that uses his hands well to establish control and move defenders. Plays with a great pad level which is great for a player of his size.

Comes from a bit of a troubled home life, but seems to have found his way in recent years. His family life aside, the young man has a tremendous future on the football field. He does more things well than most other players. His athleticism and burst coming off the line of scrimmage are average, if that. He's not going to win any awards because of his first step agility or closing speed. What he does well is hold his ground and fight for position along the line. He uses his hands well to disengage. Wolfe's footwork can be improved on; he needs to learn to take shorter, choppy steps.

Wolfe plays with an edge and an attitude every snap. He's not a dirty player by any means, but he's willing to scrap. Against the run, he's tough to misdirect. He can take a block and manipulate a blocker where he doesn't want to go.
