We hear that one of the many reasons the Broncos have played better of late is due to improvements by a couple of members of the offensive line. ORT Orlando Franklin, a rookie assigned to protect Tim Tebow's blind side, is still seen as a work in progress, but the second-round pick has been flagged only once since Week Nine — a false-start penalty in the noisy Metrodome in Week 13. Franklin's athleticism also comes in handy when Tebow moves out of the pocket, as he has the ability to get downfield and throw blocks when his quarterback is moving. OLG Zane Beadles also has emerged as an impact player in his second season in the league, also in large part to his athleticism. In the Broncos' read-option offense, the guards are asked to do a lot of pulling and running downfield, two skill-sets that Beadles has mastered.
