The Broncos have signed second-round OL Zane Beadles. As per club policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed though numerous reports say that the deal is for four years and $4.2 million.
Beadles was a four-year starter at Utah, where he earned All-Mountain West Conference honors three times and was named a first-team All-American as a senior in 2009. He started 50 games for his career —38 at left tackle and 12 at left guard.
Personnel analyst Nolan Nawrocki wrote in PFW's 2010 Draft Preview that the 6-4, 305-pound Beadles "does not have the length or foot quickness to stay outside and lacks ideal bulk and playing temperament for the inside."
