Draft Scout Vic Beasley News
07/07/14 - Clemson's top NFL Draft-eligible prospects to watch in 2014: 1. DE Vic Beasley...Despite his natural ability as a pass rusher, Beasley does struggle against the run as he seems to lose track of the play at times and will take bad angles or even appear unmotivated when the play flows to the opposite side of the line, and when he takes on blockers too high, he's easily swept out of the play. He offers almost nothing in terms of ability to anchor or set the edge with power against the run, as he simply lacks the girth to hold position against tackles and even tight ends at times. Beasley may be a one-trick pony, but he's positioned to be considered the best in the '15 draft class at that one trick, and with some added bulk and a better showing against the run this season, look for him to be considered a top-15 prospect. - Derek Stephens, NFLDraftScout.com
07/07/14 - Clemson's top NFL Draft-eligible prospects to watch in 2014: 1. DE Vic Beasley...The ACC's leading sack tallier in 2013 (13), Beasley opted to return for his senior year after reportedly receiving a 2nd-round grade from the NFL Advisory Committee while considering a post-junior year exit. With 23 tackles for loss in addition to the elite sack production last season, Beasley makes a case for consideration as this year's top edge prospect. Though Beasley's lean frame has led some to question his legitimacy as an every-down end prospect for the next level, his electric first step, long arms and active hands have enabled him to routinely create and maintain space against bigger blockers, and he has consistently shown a knack for keeping opponents on their heels with quick change-of-direction ability. - Derek Stephens, NFLDraftScout.com
06/05/14 - ROB RANG'S MAY 15, 2014 TOP 32 BIG BOARD: 19. Vic Beasley, OLB, 6-2, 235, rSr., Clemson: Beasley only emerged as a full-time starter last year but exploded with 23 tackles for loss and 13 sacks and considered making the NFL leap. Reportedly given a second-round grade from the NFL Advisory Committee after his junior season, Beasley is a natural pass rusher with a lightning first step. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com

01/18/14 - Clemson All-American defensive end Vic Beasley said it was never more than a 50-50 chance he'd leave the Tigers for the NFL. And that made it easier for the Atlantic Coast Conference sacks leader to return to school to both improve his game and finish his degree. Beasley had received a second-round grade from the NFL draft advisory board and some analysts had him their first-round mock drafts, usually a green light for juniors to jump to the pros. Still, Beasley took his choice down to the wire, telling coach Dabo Swinney he'd come back only a few hours before Wednesday night's midnight deadline for eligible underclassmen to declare for the NFL draft. "You just have to know what's best for you," Beasley. Beasley sounded like he was already gone after Clemson's 40-35 victory over Ohio State at the Orange Bowl. He had a sack and four tackles and said then it was "good to leave Clemson University on a good note."
On Friday, Beasley said he had never fully given up on finishing his college career before heading off to the pros. "Nothing really changed" after the bowl game, Beasley said. "I was 50-50 going into the bowl game and after the bowl game. I literally made my decision Wednesday night." Beasley had 13 sacks this fall, tying for third overall nationally in the Football Bowl Subdivision. He has 21 sacks in his Clemson career and is eight away from breaking the school mark of 28, shared by Michael Dean Perry and the late Gaines Adams. Beasley acknowledged the NFL's lure was strong. "It was just hard for me to leave Clemson University without my degree and without being the best player that I know I can be," he said. - AP Sports
