Overview

Beadles is a four-year starter that played guard in 2006 but has been Utah’s starting left tackle for the past three years. He will require some re-tooling becuase he is used to playing out of a two point stance and needs to line up with a hand on the ground in the NFL. He is an adequate athlete that would struggle with the kind of speed coming off the edge in the NFL and needs to move back inside to guard. He understands angles and blocking schemes and should be a quick study at the next level.

Analysis

Strengths

Beadles was a four-year starter with a ton of games experience and great understanding of the game. Plays with an extremely high level of intensity and fire. Doesn’t stop until the whistle. Possesses very good football intelligence. Plays with quick hands. Exhibits really nice body control.

Weaknesses

Is a projection prospect who spent the last three years as a tackle out of a two point stance. Beadles lacks top lateral range. Will let his footwork get sloppy at times. Is not used to playing with a hand on the ground and needs more experience firing off the ball.
