    Also, guys, do you think he'll be a better Iowa guard than the Raiders' Robert Gallery?
    I dont think Gallery is bad but he is just in a bad system with a bad offencive line. The thing about Iowa lineman is they are not the best in the nfl but they are all solid starters. a few are Weigmann, Yanda from Baltimore, Eric Steinbach from the Browns

    Comparison

    LT- Clady 6'6 325 Light 6'4 305
    LG- Hamilton 6'4 290 Mankins 6'4 310
    C- Weigmann 6'2 285 Koppen 6'2 295
    RG- Kuper 6'4 305 Yates 6'2 305
    RT- Harris 6'5 305 Kaczur 6'4 315


    They all mayb slightly heavier except on the LT but there not power blockers like the Eagles or Cowboys they averager over 315 pounds on each one of there offencive lineman.
    Don't let size fool you. Even though our lineman are similar in build as New England's lineman, our lineman specialize in athleticism and quickness while sacrificing strength. New England's offensive lineman are more of power-blockers, even though they aren't gigantic like the Cowboys lineman or the Eagles line.

    The Broncos may use zone blocking for now, but McDaniels is likely to move away from it as he brings in linemen that can power block.

Why must we be moving away from the ZBS, when we kept Dennison and Turner, and all evidence points toward a desire to keep it (McDaniels stated that he wants to keep it, we kept all our 2008 linemen, and we drafted a one-cut back in Moreno)? We'll be augmenting it with more pulling/trapping and power blocking, but we won't be ditching the ZBS any time soon.

    Yeah, I think everything we've seen this year (including early in the year interviews) pointed towards not only sticking with zone blocking, but bringing all new facets to it. McD said he loved our scheme and couldn't wait to put it together with his own. I think it's just the reporter looking for filler in his article.

    Good on Olsen, I'll never dispute signing Oline.

    I still think Hamilton could be the surprise cut this training camp.
    Hamilton isn't going anywhere.

    But I believe this will be his last year with the Broncos because his contract expires, and we have Lichtensteiger and Olsen to fight for his Left Guard spot.

    But Hamilton will not be cut. Even though we was the "weak link", he only gave up 2.5 sacks, which is very very very damn good, and the entire year and our offensive line was ranked as one of the tops when running to the left side, and that wasn't all Clady.

    That's what I was thinking too.

    A power blocker from Iowa, the Broncos' pick of Olsen is more evidence that they're moving away from their old zone-blocking scheme. Olsen was a two-year starter at right guard for Kirk Ferentz. He'll be a backup as a rookie.

    Olsen comes from Iowa that produces good linemen and he blocked for Shonn Greene. Sounds good to me. And he is not that big for a guard, I think he could fit the ZBS mold.
