Utah offensive lineman Zane Beadles took the podium just a few minutes ago. Beadles worked out at guard at the Senior Bowl and had a pretty good game. He said he’s most comfortable at tackle, but is versatile and could play guard and center as well.
Beadles said the Seahawks are not one of the teams he’s talked to so far, but he’s comfortable playing in a zone blocking scheme, having played in that scheme at Utah.
Beadles said he gave up one sack last season, to BYU defensive lineman Jan Jorgensen.

“To show my athleticism when we get out on the field,” Beadles said. “I think my athleticism is a little underrated. And then my interviews I think are going to be huge for me. I see myself as an intelligent player, and I’m looking forward to getting on the board with some coaches showing people I have a good grip on the game and a good understanding of it, and hopefully that will help elevate my stock.”
CBS Sports projects Beadles as a fifth round pick and the No. 7 ranked offensive guard in the draft.
