Not with Jockey.


The Broncos are signing their way down the draft-pick list, putting under contract second-round pick Zane Beadles tonight with a four-year deal.

Beadles, the 45th overall pick in the NFL draft, is Denver's highest selection signed for this season. First-rounders Demaryius Thomas and Tim Tebow were drafted higher and remain unsigned the Broncos' only draft picks still without contracts.

A left tackle his final two seasons at the University of Utah, Beadles finished the Broncos' offseason minicamp as the starting left guard on the team's depth chart.

Terms of the deal were not immediately known.

Zane Beadles
Guard, offensive tackle
Height: 6-4
Weight: 305
College: Utah
Drafted: Second round, 45th overall
FYI: Four-year starter who played in 51 games for the Utes. Started 12 games at left guard and 38 at left tackle. Intelligent player he has a degree in mechanical engineering who makes few mistakes.
Outlook: Received a look at tackle in offseason workouts but likely will be a guard in Denver's offense over the long haul.

Glad to have him. If (and it's a major if) Clady can get healthy, I feel pretty excited about an offensive line consisting of: Harris- Kuper- Walton- Beadles- Clady.

That's a young, talented, versatile, and smart line that should do well together for many years to come.

And it's awesome to only have two more signings to go! Hopefully they're done by the weekend!

I've been following the NBA too much. That doesn't even seem like a lot of money any longer.

I am glad we are getting the deals done. It will be great to see how Beadles is coming along in camp. With his versatility, he should be able to contribute very soon.

I have very high hopes for Beadles. The comps to Mankins really has me pumped. He could be a stud for us for several years!
