Default beadles moved to LG

per rotoworld per DP:

The Broncos have moved second-round pick Zane Beadles to left guard.
Beadles, the 45th overall pick in April, was initially practicing at right tackle with Ryan Harris (toe) sidelined. Left guard, however, gives him his best shot to win a starting job. Beadles' competition will be journeyman Russ Hochstein, who is 33 years old and coming off reconstructive knee surgery.

just as we expected, LG would be the biggest position battle this summer, along with nickel DB. it seems JD walton took the starting center position pretty quickly into OTAs.

What about the RT spot? How healthy is Harris right now, and who's backing him up? Can't recall...

Healthy enough to be in team drills, if he is not 100% by now it is very close. I imagine that Polumbus will back him up when Clady is on hand.

Good. That's where he can have the most success. He lacks the dexterity to be a starter at either tackle position, but his mass inside will be a boon for this, until recently, tiny offensive line.

I agree with Montrose that beadles and walton will start. Could be some growing pains having two rookies,but eventually it'll pay off. Beadles at LG is definitely where he has most upside.

Every scouting report I've read about this guy has said he'll never make it at the pro level as a tackle, but as a guard he could really contribute.

This is where he was gonna be from the get go. Good to hear things are somewhat falling into place.

Excellent to know that JD Walton is what we hoped he would be.

Go Broncs!

To me, this leads to two conclusions: First, Beadles must be impressing enough that they want to move him to the position where he has the best chance to earn a starting spot right away. Harris has barely returned to practice and Beadles would provide some insurance at the right tackle spot. But, moving him now to compete with Olsen tells me they really like what they see of him. Second, the team must have some confidence in Marinelli, which is the biggest surprise to me. Polumbus may ultimately be depth at both tackle spots but, given the health concerns of Clady and Harris, and Polumbus' generally poor performance at RT last year, that seems a bit risky. Unless, again, they feel good about Marinelli. Interesting...

Seth Olsen from Iowa will be starting...Give beadles time, he will be a good backup at the tackles and guard spots.

I'm all for optimism, but wow... Moving him away from tackle probably speaks more to the fact that they're not liking what they're seeing of him at the position, and wanted to move him back to a position where he can make the team. Or, I guess you could be right and it means he's so awesome as a tackle that they can't wait to move him somewhere else to be even more awesome.
