Putting the D back in defense

After years of reading everyone’s contributions I finally decided to author one of my own. This may be because I am really bored at work and cannot find the answer to my quandary anywhere else. Just to preface this question, I am in no way an expert on the X's and O's of football and rely mainly on the eye test when conducting my football analysis. On to the question, could Wesley Woodyard move back outside into the role vacated by Von's injury and jump start this defense? Now I know that there is simply no way to replace what an athlete of Von Miller's caliber brings to a team, and how forcing the opposing team to game plan to stop him makes the entire team better. However, with the emergence of Danny T, and the addition of Paris Lenon in the starting line up in a base formation, could WW be the missing link and a better player than say a Nate Irving who filled in for Von last week? This season has been rough on WW and the transition to MLB has been rough to say the least. Giving him the opportunity to move back outside and utilize his speed and play recognition without the burden of fighting of constant blocks could be just the medicine needed to reinvigorate a player that since his arrival has been a pleasant surprise. Also, by not having a singular stud pass rusher will we see JDR bring more exotic blitz schemes to fabricate a pass rush and keep this defense aggressive? I really would appreciate any feedback to this post and cannot wait to finally get the answer to this question that has perplexed me since Von went down. Happy Holidays and Go Broncos! DISCLAIMER: I am not an English Major and tried my best to ensure this post was easy to read.
