Player Overview

With increasingly sophisticated passing attacks all the rage in the NFL, teams are more willing than ever to gamble on pass-rushers. In Beasley, who leads the country with 8.0 sacks, scouts see a speed-rusher in much the same mold as Seahawks' 2012 first round pick Bruce Irvin.

Beasley faced a solid opponent in Syracuse LT Sean Hickey, a 6-5, 290-pound junior who is already earning his own attention from scouts. Nonetheless, Beasely beat Hickey for two sacks in this contest, including one in the third quarter that demonstrated his unique athleticism. Beasley lined up opposite Hickey and TE Beckett Wales on the snap and was surprised to see Wales release into a route and the LT block down, giving Beasley an open lane. Showing incredible body control to regain himself as well as excellent closing speed, Beasley caught the highly athletic QB from behind for a sack. (10/11/13)

12/04/2014 - 2014 ACC DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE YEAR (MEDIA): The 6-foot-3, 235-pound native of Adairsville, Georgia, holds the Clemson school record and leads all active FBS players with 32 career sacks. A finalist for the Bednarik Award and Lombardi Trophy, Beasley's 52 career tackles for loss have accounted for 292 negative yards, also the most of any active FBS player. "He came back for his senior year to graduate, and to have a great season and improve as an all-around player," Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney said of Beasley. "He has done that - he is a complete player. He is a big reason we currently rank number-one in the nation in total defense and many other areas. He is the best defensive player in the ACC, and I really feel he is the best defensive player in the nation." - ACC football
