2010 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Zane Beadles, OT, Utah
The versatile Beadles played both tackle and guard for Utah during his four year career. A starter since early in his freshman year (started 12 out of 13 games), the 6-foot-5 mauler quickly became a fixture along the Utes' flex offensive line. Beadles established himself as the line's anchor following spring practices where the coaching staff moved him to T. He had an outstanding sophomore campaign where he dominated the under appreciated MW Conference. He had an even bigger junior season in 2008, averaging 71.4 plays per game, tops in the team and tenth in the nation. Beadles finished his collegiate career with a decent senior year. Following the year, Beadle went on to earn several invitations to postseason games (Senior Bowl and East-West Shrine Classic). Good run block skills. Consistently leads blocks effectively on the outside. Better than average speed (5.14 est.) allows him to adjust in the second level. Shows quick footwork getting out of his stand during pass plays. Has heavy hands and he knows how to use them. Strong at the point of attack. Mobile. Can chip defensive tackles and reach the second level quickly. Has experience playing both sides of the line. While he had sufficient strength to drive blockers on the side, he will have trouble using his strength against NFL linemen. Shows inconsistent technique. Does not show the explosiveness a player with his speed should have. Tends to play too upright. Lacks true staying power. Is not a top flight athlete. Despite speed, he is not agile and doesn't move well laterally. A better college player than pro prospect, Beadles projects as a possible NFL backup at best. He does not possess enough physical skills to merit anything more than a Day Two flier.
