I agree that playing with Orton and then Tebow didn't help his protection numbers, but what about his 40 yards of penalties last year? And Tebow had was a big reason the run game looked so good.
Beadles has always had the talent. He'd have stretches where he'd look really good, but then he'd have occasional huge mental lapses when he'd just let a guy through. He is definitely playing better this year.
The only thing I remember him doing consistently well over the last years is pulling, we have run that power single back run to right guard a lot with Beadles pulling and he really has done that well for a long time.
Beadles was a cerebral guy coming out we all knew it, he is short armed which doesn't always help him and he was a bit of a finesse guy who has really grown into his body and made big strides in terms of power and technique.
If they can keep the current line in tact with Clady, Beadles, Walton, Kuper and Franklin we can have a dominant line for many years to come - potentially even reaching the level of the Chiefs lines in the early 2000's with Roaf, Shields, Wiegman, Waters and Tait.
