If you are doing PL lifts, Sumo or Modified Sumo should be a better bet, relies on a lot more hip flexibility that you're likley to have as a close stance squatter. Neither of theses are deadlifts though. and furthermore, probably will not do much for your Olympic lifting.

As Mike points out, pulling while standing on a plate will correct all manner of Deadlift ills
