I was actually quite impressed with Zane's play towards the end of the year after he was able to settle in at guard. I'm really looking forward to his improvement for a long time to come.

Haven't you heard? He's probably our new starting right tackle...Tebow's blind side in other words.

This needs to be discussed.

Congrats to him, things are looking up.

I dearly hope we can leave Beadles where he is and not move him back to tackle to replace Harris. We've already seen how dramatic the confusion is when you start moving young guys around on the line who don't really know their own position yet, let alone another one. We need continuity for the whole line, including Clady. Clady's injury accounts for some of his performance this year but I think it hurt him having different line mates next to him as well. So that brings us to this question;

How high in the draft do we try to find an OT? I know we have to address this defensive line but we need to think about protecting Tebow also. Or do we try to find a trade or FA signing that makes sense?

rookie honors? yay! knowson had how many rookie of the week honors?
nfl rookie honors have about the same value as "best new artist grammy"

Or just name who we passed on on that list, or who we traded a first for a second for on that list, **cough** Thomas **cough** thanks McNumbnuts....

Zane Beadles? Good fire off the snap, just don't ask him to move around. If looking worse than Stanley Daniels at LG gets you on the All-Rookie team, it must have been a very poor year for rookies. F'in Zane Beadles?

He's just going to love playing more ZBS next year.

I thought both Beadles And Walton played well down the stretch. Allowing them to start as rookies was rocky...but, the experience was invaluable. They should be much improved next year. I like our Oline...they need to resign Harris...and we have one of the youngest and best Olines in the business.

Wow this proves they have to pick someone at every position.

Why does everyone assume it's a forgone conclusion that Harris is going to be gone? Did I miss something?

It just doesn't make sense anymore not to re-sign him if they really are going back to a zone scheme.

You do realize that Thomas didn't play much because of health reasons right? In the games the he played he looked pretty damn good for a rookie.

Good for you Zane - keep up the good work!

Harris and Clady were both hurt this yr but I think they can come back strong. We don't really know why Kuper struggled at times but it could have been from having a rookie center and a hurt RT or a replacement RT all season.

I think more of a worry is if the 2 rookies get better and Clady gets back to his old form. Still though I won't be a bit surprised to see the Broncos look for a vet center.

If you were coming in as a new coach and had the lack of depth, and lack of a proven starter at center, wouldn't you think about that?

I'm glad Beadles got this honor...I think he played extremely well even while switching positions on the oline! Looking forward to seeing him improve over an already good rookie season!

Yep. I think the future is exceptionally bright for this young offensive line as a whole. It's a strength for this team (even if everyone can't quite see it yet).

I am still very skeptical about Walton, Beadles seemed to do well but Walton just doesn't seem quick enough off of his snap to make a good block. Every time pressure comes up the middle it is right over JD Walton

Beadles was actually quite effective towards the end of the season at LG.

Excellent points, agree on all accounts.
