ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - This is exactly what Zane Beadles visualized a year ago when he first started seeing a sports psychologist to help him blossom in the NFL.
The Denver Broncos' left guard is coming off a Pro Bowl appearance as he heads into his fourth season in the pros, and he now sees himself as a leader of Peyton Manning's protectors, too.
After his breakout season last year ended with a trip to Honolulu alongside Manning, Beadles has enhanced the mind games he's employed to become a better football player.
He's now using computer-generated 3D imaging to help him prepare for what he trusts will be an even better season in 2013.
