Woodyard Shines In Jack Del Rio’s Broncos Defense
" DENVER (CBS4) – Broncos linebacker Wesley “The Lumberjack” Woodyard has been a beast on the field for Denver so far this season totaling double-digit tackles in each of the last four games. He says it’s all about defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio’s scheme.

“He allows us to fly around and make plays,” Woodyard said on Xfinity Monday Live! “We get guys together who believe and buy into his system, you know, we can’t be stopped.”

He said he has a little competition with his teammates on who will get the most tackles in a game.

“We usually keep track to see who is leading between us on the team,” Woodyard said. “We’ll occasionally look up at the scoreboard to check it out.”

Woodyard currently ranks fifth in the league with 75 total tackles and he says much of the credit goes to fellow linebacker Von Miller, who seems to be getting better every week.
