ZANE BEADLES: Utah, 6043 307 5.35. Four-year starter. Plays left tackle, but is projected to move inside to guard. Plays in a spread offense. Smooth footwork in pass protection with good body quickness, change of direction, and the ability to redirect and recover. Starts in a preset two-point stance. Plays with good arm extension. Physical, blue collar player that will maul a defender in the running game at times. Plays with a good base in both the running game and pass protection. Quick enough to cut off an inside slant move. Smooth feet in transition on twist or “x” stunts. Flashes an explosive punch. Can run the pass rusher up the field and around the quarterback. Asked to cut block in the spread formation. Rarely overextends as a run blocker. Brings his feet with him. A forced knee bender that stays engaged. Locks on the breast plate and steers the defender. A technique savvy player that is a strong run blocker. Ties up pass rushers. Effective in pass pro to mirror and slide his feet. Plays square to defender. Value comes with his intelligence and ability to be a guard and an emergency tackle. A 4-for-1 player. Did not work out at the Combine due to a right hamstring strain. Third/fourth round. (A- 33 3/4, H-9 3/4, BP-27, 10-1.85).
