Orlando Franklin could play on Tebow's blindside

Second-rounder Orlando Franklin is expected to remain at right tackle even if left-handed passer Tim Tebow wins the starting quarterback job this year.
Like the Jags with Mark Brunell and Tony Boselli and the Bengals with Anthony Munoz and Boomer Esiason, the Broncos will keep Ryan Clady at left tackle. Regarded as a dominant run blocker, the long-armed Franklin is expected to jump right into the starting lineup on the other side. His pass protection is still a work in progress, so Tebow will have to deal with the growing pains.
