Draft Scout Vic Beasley News
03/05/15 - Clemson All-American defensive end Vic Beasley put on another stellar show for NFL personnel. The school's all-time sacks leader worked out at his familiar defensive line spot, and then with linebackers during the Tigers pro day. Beasley was a NFL combine headliner last month, running a 4.53-second time in the 40-yard dash and lifting the 225-pound weight 35 times - both top showings among defensive linemen and linebackers in Indianapolis. While Beasley didn't run or lift at Clemson's indoor practice facility, he went through extended drill sessions at both positions in front of 72 evaluators from all 32 NFL teams, including New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick. "I came out here with the right mind set and I wanted to show these teams that I can play in space and drop back as a linebacker," Beasley said.
The lightning quick Beasley, at 6-foot-3 and 246 pounds, was always looked at as too small to play a down line spot in the NFL. He was more than up to that challenge with the Tigers, going from an out of position running back when recruited to the Tigers career leader with 33 sacks. Beasley's stock has risen since the combine, from being projected as a late first-rounder to possibly being a top-10 pick in several mock NFL drafts. But most outlooks have him as an outside linebacker who teams can turn loose on passing downs. Beasley wants to prove he belongs in games for more than just third-and-long. "I felt like I've elevated my level as a linebacker," he said. - AP Sports
02/24/15 - Five Takeaways from the NFL Combine DL/LB Drills: 5. Beasley is a beast. The 6-foot-3, 246 pound Beasley enjoyed one of the great Combine workouts in recent memory, leading all linebackers in the 40-yard dash (4.53 seconds) and bench press (35 repetitions of 225 pounds) and finishing among the top five in the 3 cone drill (6.91 seconds), short shuttle (4.15), the vertical (41") and broad jumps (10'10"). Unlike some of the other workout warriors in these and other position groups, Beasley is also a verified productive player, leaving the Tigers as the program's all-time leader with 29 career sacks. Boasting as explosive a first-step as any pass rusher in this class, Beasley is a first round cinch and could be wind up in the top 10. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com

02/22/15 - Clemson linebacker Vic Beasley and Southern California defensive lineman Leonard Williams came up big winners Sunday in Indianapolis. Florida State defensive lineman Mario Williams Jr. was almost as good. On the third day of workouts at the annual NFL scouting combine, Beasley pulled off an impressive double - posting the fastest 40-yard dash time of the day at 4.53 seconds and sharing the title of most bench press reps at 225 pounds with 35. Beasley did that despite weighing in at 246 pounds. The 302-pound Williams, who played defensive tackle in college, did nearly as well. Though he did not lift Sunday, Williams was clocked at 4.97 seconds in the 40 - the same time posted by Jameis Winston on Saturday and matching the fastest time turned in by an offensive lineman on Friday. - AP Sports
02/17/15 - 2015 DRAFT SCOUT PRE-COMBINE TOP 64 DRAFT PROSPECTS: 15/2. Vic Beasley, OLB, Clemson, 6-2, 235, 4.58, 1...Beasley doesn't pass the eyeball test until the ball is snapped and he shows the surprising up-field moves that netted 33 quarterback sacks and elicited comparisons to the NFL's Von Miller. But before that snap, Beasley looks too slight to be an effective defensive player on the front seven. His frame does not appear sturdy enough to pile on more muscle to create even the illusion of an every-down defender. However, in an NFL era ever more conducive to quarterbacks bloating their passing stats, the cry for anti-air attack weaponry is loud. So even if Beasley is a one-trick pony, his one trick is prized. He leverages a blink-quick first step into an effective array of pass rushes. If a blocker steps out to take on the up-field rush, Beasley darts inside. Or vice versa. Although he seems to have abilities to play sideline-to-sideline, Beasley appears lost doing something other than chasing down somebody in the backfield. - Frank Cooney, The Sports Xchange
