For the first day of mandatory minicamp today, the Broncos made some depth-chart changes.

Zane Beadles, the second-round pick from Utah who had been working at right tackle, has shifted to first-string left guard. The move was made with the limited return of right tackle Ryan Harris from toe surgery. Harris still is taking only a few snaps and in his stead, veteran D’Anthony Batiste has been taking first-team, right tackle reps.

The changes have pushed second-year guard Seth Olsen, a fourth-round pick in 2009 from Iowa, to second team.

On defense, projected starting outside linebackers Elvis Dumervil and Robert Ayers aren’t with the first team. Dumervil isn’t practicing live in hopes of getting a multiyear contract. He is expected to sign his $3.168 million tender by Monday.
