Utah Utes football: 5 questions for the Zane Beadles
http://www.deseretnews.com/article/700027280/Utah-Utes-football-5-questions-for-the-Zane-Beadles.html

Zane Beadles' lifelong dream came true on Friday night. The former University of Utah All-American offensive tackle was picked in the second round of the NFL draft by the Denver Broncos. Beadles, a Hillcrest High product, discussed a few things with Deseret News sportswriter Andrew Aragon shortly after becoming a Denver Bronco.

Question: What was your reaction when Broncos coach Josh McDaniels called you, saying you were his pick?

Beadles: I kind of started shaking a little bit, I think. I was at a loss for words. I was excited. I'm excited to get to work and play some football. It's been a stressful time, with things not related to playing football just the whole draft process, (running) 40s, interviews, tests. The draft process was just different from playing football.


Question: What's the first thing you're going to buy when you sign your first pro contract?

Beadles: I've been thinking about this a little bit. I think I'm going to get a King Posturepedic mattress. Sleep is very important. I haven't even seen what they cost, but I think that's what I'm going to get.

Question: Any thoughts on being Tim Tebow's teammate? (Tebow, the former Florida QB, was picked by the Broncos in the first round)

Beadles: I don't know him very well. I met him at the Senior Bowl, and he was on the other team. Hopefully, I'll get a chance to get to know him. We're in the same draft class, on the same team. We're going to be going through some of the same things, being on the same team and in the same draft class. When you go through things together like that, as teammates and as a football team, you become friends through that.


Question: Who have been the biggest influences on your football career?

Beadles: My parents both of them (Brad Beadles and Jamie Legerski). My high school coach (the late Bruce Takeno) was a huge influence. He always taught me to be a rabid dog on the field, but to always be a gentlemen off the field. He always said to try my hardest to be someone to be proud of off the field. And then obviously, (Utes) coach (Kyle) Whittingham and my position coaches at Utah (Charlie Dickey and Blake Miller).

Question: What type of influence has your family had on your life and football career?

Beadles: It's been huge. I tell you what, the Denver Broncos just got a ton of new fans. I had at least eight people (family members) at every one of my games (as a Ute) home and away. I can't say enough about the time and money my family has put into supporting me. I just want to pay them back, not necessarily monetarily, but with being a good football player and being a good son.

I really like the Beadles pick. Some might think it was a reach, but my philosophy is, if a guy becomes a starter for ten years he's worth a top ten, first round pick and anything you gave up below that means you got a steal.

He would have been a reach for a tackle, but as a guard he's one of the top prospects. A great pick especially for his versatility.

Great pick. To me, our 2/3 picks balanced out this draft enough for me to be stoked about the whole thing.

Well I was very excited about getting him.....but didn't know he went to Hillcrest (Blah) a high school that's owned in sports by it's arch rival.....BRIGHTON! Go Bengals!

He is a good kid and is talented. A great pickup by the Broncos. So excited!

I guess I just remember watching what they showed on ESPN, because I watched some video. Beadles looked like he had extremely good feet and technique. The few clips were "highlight" clips, but I was impressed.

At least as far as pass blocking, he looked just as good as the other Tackles I saw, and light years ahead of a guys like Iupati. (Of course the primary reason you get a big Polynesian ain't pretty dancin').

That seems to be the direction we're headed in. For the most part, they guys we've drafted are just really likable guys.

Even if Tebow thinks I'm going to hell, he is a nice guy.

What I like most about the draft, aside from the value we got, was the high IQ players we got.

He's got some pulling speed for an OT. A good road blocker - he'll definitely play guard.

Good ****. THanks for posting.

The guy reminds me of Jon Runyan in the way he plays. Love his run blocking, efficient with his pass blocking. I wish he played with more bend though.

Looks like another solid prospect for the OL. I'm liking those additions.

lold at the bed comment

I think we reached for him because we value the versatility. I'm sure our goal is for him to play guard, but with Harris' injury issues and the general crappyness of our backup tackles, I'm sure we bumped this guy above other interior linemen because of his history at tackle.

Not sure he's real impressive in this clip. In fact, he gets beat pretty badly on one play where he's speed rushed to his outside shoulder.

That's why he's projected as a Guard.
