Wayne Tribue will probably be alright if this whole “NFL thing” doesn’t work out. This 329-lb guard is far from the stereotypical football meathead.

Wayne Tribue has been studying to be a doctor.

“I took the MCATs about a month ago, so we’ll see,” Tribue told reporters last September. “That’s an option, but hopefully I’ll still be playing football.” Maybe he can play double-duty as the team’s medical trainer in 2012.

A veteran of four seasons at all three interior OL positions, Tribue found a home at right guard in 2011 and started there the entire season for the Owls. Before that, he moved around Temple’s interior OL, often splitting work between left guard and center in his four-year career. NFP called him “one of the most underrated offensive guard prospects in the nation” and raved about his quick initial step and willingness to finish in all aspects of his game.

Scouting Reports: NFP, DS, TU, Broncos

Camp Competition: Zane Beadles, Chris Kuper, Manny Ramirez, C.J. Davis, Austin Wuebbels

Camp Outlook: The road is uphill for all of the Broncos’ undrafted rookies, and the competition at guard is no exception, especially with impressive fellow UDFA Austin Wuebbels also vying for a spot. Where Wuebbels sounds raw, mean, and strong, scouting reports on Tribue suggest he is more the technician. Guard may be one of the more overlooked positions in training camp, but we’re truly excited to see how this camp battle pans out.

    With Beadles and Walton being such huge disappointments so far, I hope these guys will either push them up or push them out. Either way would be a win.

    I do love this time of year, filled with hope for the “new guys”.  We tend to forget most of the guys were the best in their schools, or their conferences and just how hard they worked just to have any team look their way.  I just gotta root for these kids.

    Guy has played all three inside positions. Sound techs, what’s not to like? Mean is great, but blocking correctly and finishing is better.

  • Monty

    Both have the smarts to back up their strengths too. Wuebblers was a four-time academic all-conference honors recipient, Tribue a freaking future doctor.

    I love hearing stories stories about these type of players.  This is what separates men from boys, players from HOF’s.  Broncos are looking more mature by the minute.  It sounds like Wuebblers and Tribue have the potential to be on their A game during tryouts.  I hope they work out.

    Your trippin if you think their disappointments their pretty good and now that the have to guard manning they’ll get better number 1 in the run game that doesn’t happen jus because of tebow and magahee
