Prospect Profiles: LB / DE Vic Beasley


Summary: After graduating in August, Beasley moved to the top of the class of Clemson's edge rushers, finishing his career atop the school's sacks list (33) and fourth in tackles for loss (52.5). The two-time All-America selection is tied for seventh with seven career forced fumbles. Beasley consistently produced, recording at least one sack in eight consecutive games (2013-14) and at least one tackle for loss in his final 15 games.

Stacking up: After the combine, NFL Media analyst Mike Mayock ranked Beasley as the third-best "edge rusher" in the field. Counterpart Bucky Brooks lists Beasley as his top outside linebacker, calling him the "most explosive pass rusher in the draft."

Quote of note: "He displays exceptional first-step quickness and acceleration, while also showing the balance and body control to "run the hump" off the edge. Following his impressive display of speed, strength and power at a heavier weight at the NFL Scouting Combine, Beasley is a strong candidate to come off the board as a top-15 selection." — Bucky Brooks
