Ryan Harris was bad at the start of the preseason, but he pretty much sat his whole rookie year so the rust wasn't unexpected. The fact is, by opening day he was ready to go and playing well... giving us upgrades at both tackle spots. Both Clady and Harris were perceived to be stronger pass protectors than run blockers when they came out of college, and based on what I've seen so far that appears to be the case.

Upgraded OL + Cutler's release + playcalling + good WR play (making blitzing less appealing) = few sacks

Shanny.

Shanny trumps any logic sometimes.

Denver Bronco99 hopes to escalate quickly but not get out of hand.

Has this been posted yet? Some flattering words for Clady:

By Matt Sohn
Oct. 7, 2008

A record eight offensive tackles were snagged in the first round last April, and seven of them honed their skills in one of the NCAA’s so-called “power conferences.” Led by Michigan’s Jake Long, the two-time Big Ten Lineman of the Year, the first 31 picks included Chris Williams (Vanderbilt), Branden Albert (Virginia), Gosder Cherilus (Boston College), Jeff Otah (Pittsburgh) and Duane Brown (Virginia Tech). So naturally, it has been the lone non-BCS representative that has emerged as the class of the first-round linemen.

On the one hand, the notion that Boise State’s Ryan Clady has surpassed all of his first-round brethren shouldn’t be classified as a major shock. After all, only Long was selected ahead of him. Nevertheless, there was perhaps more uncertainty regarding Clady than any of the others. Not only did he spend his collegiate career beating up on WAC opponents, there were also questions about his maturity. Then, when bench-pressing at the Indianapolis Scouting Combine, he suffered a pectoral injury that rendered him not much more than a Hulk-sized observer for most of the week in Indianapolis.

Thus far, he has quelled all concerns, emphatically. As outstanding as Jay Cutler and Brandon Marshall have been, a case could be made that Clady has been the best and most consistent cog in an offense racking up 415 yards per game. Maybe it’s the athleticism, maybe it’s the coaching, or maybe it’s the comfort that comes from being a Bronco during his collegiate career. Point is, he’s just getting it done.

Clady still hasn’t allowed a sack, and hasn’t so much as ticked his way to a false start — the next ball of yellow laundry thrown his way will be the first. Should he keep up his play, we could be seeing a rookie tackle strapping it up in Honolulu for the second consecutive season (Browns OLT Joe Thomas did the trick last year).

2. Broncos OT Ryan Clady (1-12)
Last week’s ranking: 5
If there was a Lineman of the Week award (which, given how oversaturated the NFL’s “award” list is, you figure there would be), Clady would’ve been a strong candidate for the weekend that was. Clady stonewalled Bucs 2007 top-five pick Gaines Adams throughout the afternoon, enabling the Broncos to do just enough in a surprisingly low-scoring victory.

Like I said when they took Clady: that scheme is great, it can turn average linemen into good ones and really good linemen into great ones.

I don't think the scheme really helps with pass blocking though. As far as I know, pass blocking is mostly the same no matter what scheme you're in(from a LT perspective, obviously it changes on the interior), it's all the same fundamentals. I think this has nothing to do with the system.

Clady was going to be a beast as a pass blocker, it was his run blocking that was the only issue I had with him as a prospect and that scheme does a great job covering lineman who lack the drive and overwhelming size/power for a power running scheme.

Well, back when I played in middle school, we had a LT (who covered my blind side) who was 130 pounds (max weight being 160) and he faced a lot of good defensive ends who were 155-160 and ran 4.9's and 5.0's (keep in mind the fastest guy was 4.8) and he won lineman of the year. When I asked him how in the worl he only allowed for me to be sacked once he said to me that the very first pass we threw I was sacked. Then he started holding a lot and got called for it.. then by the 2nd game he was a master at holding, no one saw him, only visible in the video session. But by the end of the year, he learned how to use his feet and hands properly and pass block without holding. Now he is still light, playing HS Varsity, and is a very good Tackle for his team.

Its all about making it as least visible as possible.

Didn't Marcus McNeill make the Pro Bowl as a rookie also? Wouldn't that make it 3 straight years instead of two?

Back when the Falcons might have been picking at spot 5 (thank for for winning that coin flip. we might not have ryan otherwise) I was down for taking Clady. I realized it was quite a reach, but I loved his tool set coming out of the draft. Quick feet, long arms.

He is what D'brick should be.
