Zane Dae Beadles (born November 19, 1986) is an American football guard and tackle for the Denver Broncos of the National Football League (NFL). He played college football for the University of Utah and received All-American honors. Beadles was chosen by the Denver Broncos in the 2nd round of the 2010 NFL Draft.[1][2]

High school career

Beadles attended Hillcrest High School in Midvale, Utah, where he was a three-year starter and did not miss a game during his high school career. A two-way lineman, Beadles recorded 93 tackles, six sacks and an interception for the defense and did not allow a quarterback sack as an offensive tackle as a senior. He earned first team all-state and all-region honors.

Considered only a two-star recruit by both and, Beadles was not ranked among the nation's best offensive tackle prospects.[3][4] He chose Utah over Wyoming, the alma mater of both of his parents.

College career

After redshirting his initial year at Utah, Beadles played in all 13 games and started 12 at left guard (he came off the bench against BYU after missing practice with a concussion). He totaled 10 pancake blocks, 10 cut blocks and 19 knockdowns. In his sophomore year, Beadles was moved from guard to tackle in Utah's preseason camp and started all 13 games at left tackle. He registered 22 pancake blocks, 37 knockdowns and 17 cuts, and earned a second team All-MWC selection.

In his junior season, Beadles led Utah with 40 knockdowns, while also having 42 pancake blocks and 27 cuts. He played and started in 12 games and earned first team All-MWC honors, helping the Utes reach a BCS bowl, an unbeaten 13–0 season and a No. 2 national ranking in the final AP Poll.

For the 2009 season, Beadles was named to the preseason watch list for the Outland Trophy and the Lombardi Award.[5][6] He was also listed at No. 6 on′s preseason offensive tackle power ranking.[7] He also was a First-team All-American by the FWAA.

Professional career

2010 NFL Draft

Beadles was considered one of the best offensive linemen available for the 2010 NFL Draft. Analysts projected him as either an offensive tackle or guard.[1][8] He has been compared to former Ute All-American Jordan Gross.[8] He scored 36 on the Wonderlic intelligence test.[9]
