2010 NFL Draft, Pick 45: Broncos Select OT Zane Beadles

With the 45th pick in the 2010 NFL draft, the Broncos select...

Utah OT Zane Beadles

Beadles is an interesting pick but makes sense for the Broncos, who value versatile players. Beadles can play tackle or guard but played mostly tackle in college.

He was a highly touted prospect his senior season at Utah.

Some immediate reaction from our Broncos blog, Mile High Report:

The Denver Broncos continue to think outside the box in this draft, selecting Zane Beadles with the 13th pick in the second round.  Beadles spent the last two-plus seasons at offensive tackle for Utah, but he'll likely move into a guard spot at the next level.  By most accounts, that transition should be a smooth one for him and it elevates his ceiling considerably.  At 6'5", 310 pounds, Zane is yet another young, talented big body to plug in along the offensive line.  He is known for - surprise! - his toughness, leadership, versatility and work ethic.

For all things Broncos, stay tuned to Mile High Report.
