Default Broncos to replace Beadles in-house if he walks?

According to good old Legwold, that may well be the plan.

He reckons we will move Franklin to LG and give Clark a shot at RT, Broncos are pretty high on Painter as well for depth at this point and a future starter at RT.

Kinda figured it'll go down like that. Could create a nasty interior o-line in the run game.

eddie mac first thought of this in his crazy draft/ FA game... (well maybe not first, but first place I saw it...)

AND I LOVE IT!!

Franklin will be great inside, and Clark had an amazing year. I think our OL can be even better next year

I was hoping they would do just this. Franklin to left guard I would love to see.

They are not going to move Franklin to G. He is one of the best RT's in the NFL.

As much as I love Beadles the guy.... and the player.... this seems like the best team move.

Beadles will command a pretty decent payday for a guard, and Clark filled in for Clady quite nicely.

I'd still prefer Clady-Beadles-Manram-Vasquez-Franklin....

But Clady-Franklin-Manram-Vasquez-Clark is adequate and way more cap friendly.

I just posted this earlier, I absolutely hate the idea of Franklin playing LG. The Superbowl exposed Clark for what he is, a back-up. It's so difficult to find good tackles in the NFL, and Franklin has really progressed well. Why move him to Guard, creating a hole at RT? There will be options available in free agency and the draft to play LG.

While Clark filled in admirably for Clady all year, he's not strong enough to play RT. he's under a reasonable contract, and you can't have enough quality depth, leave him as our swing tackle and depth. Leave Franklin at RT and find a LG in free agency or the draft.

it won't be Franklin moving inside. it is going to be Clark taking Beadles spot. Tackle is harder to replace than a Guard and Clark has the versatility to move inside. Add in this offense uses a pulling Guard a lot and Clark is better suited to do that than Franklin.

Not trying to be abrasive here, but Franklin got his ass handed to him all night. That was the #1 biggest surprise of the game for me - Franklin getting driven back into Manning's throwing space all game. Hopefully it was just a bad game because Orlando did an exceptional job this year, but he got whipped plain and simple.

Yeah he did, but he has really developed into a very good RT. it's unfortunate that he picked the biggest game of the year to have a bad game, but that's no reason to move him inside. Clark is not strong enough to play RT. He's under a reasonable contract and can be a quality back up.

Clark proved to be more than a back up IMO

I think he could play LT, but I don't want him at RT, and would prefer upgrade LG with a Guard.

Clark was the highest rated O-Lineman for us in the Super Bowl, according to PFF.

I'm not real high on the "move Franklin inside" idea either. He's been a very good RT and I'd be hesitant to fix what isn't broken.

Ideally, I'd let Clark, Kuper (if he is finally healed) and a draft pick fight for it. Let the best man win.

EDIT: Just saw the other thread with Kupesdad hinting that his son was going to retire. So much for my bright idea.

Me either, but then again it's PFF. They should be taken with a grain of salt.

Clark gave up a couple of early pressures but settled in nicely. Franklin and Beadles got their ass beat all night. Franklin needs to play in the phone booth. Clark deserves to start.

Your film watching has been impressive, but I can't believe you think Franklin hasn't transitioned well from a college guard to RT. I think he had one bad game and it's no reason to panic and move him inside.

Clark at RT is a bad idea, he's far too weak to maul on the right side in the run game.
