Zane Beadles, G Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports (5 Years, $30M, 12.5 Guaranteed) Background Zane Beadles was drafted 45th overall in the 2010 draft by the Denver Broncos. He was a starter in 62 of 64 games he played and moved around from guard to tackle depending on injuries or quality of play. In 2012 Beadles was a Pro Bowl selection for the first and only time in his brief career. Pros Probably the best guard this year in free agency. Beadles is a great pass protector with outstanding athleticism, cerebral mind, and highly motivated. Coming off of a down year in 2013 after a Pro Bowl campaign in 2012, the Jaguars are hoping that 2012 will be his baseline for the team moving forward. Beadles has experience playing for a mobile quarterback in Tim Tebow and a pocket passer in Peyton Manning, which helps no matter the QB that is drafted by the Jaguars. Cons Beadles is not known for his power in the trenches for an aspiring power run team, which appears to be the way Gus Bradley is building the offense. In 2013, Beadles was the worst rated lineman on the Broncos, which included Chris Clark after Ryan Clady went down with a season ending injury. Overall Grade (B+) Beadles should be an instant starter and reliable blocker for the next several years. Might fit the Jaguars more in a zone based scheme that could take advantage of his athleticism and intelligence.
