Bottom Line

They say that Shane Ray is going to run a 4.4-40 at the combine and that would be impressive. But he does’t get around the corner to the quarterback any faster than Beasley does. As a mater of fact, Beasley gets there faster because he gets a better and much more consistent jump off the snap.

He also has better pass-rush moves and does a better job of creating turnovers for his team. I actually see him as the best edge-rusher prospect, but Ray gets love for his speed and Randy Gregory of Nebraska for his length over Beasley. At some point, you have to say, “This guy just knows how to get to the quarterback.” And he has blazing speed himself.

I cracked up as scouts compare him to Von Miller, then say Miller was 6’3″, 246 pounds. Miller did weigh that at the combine but at the Senior Bowl he weighed 237 pounds. So Beasley has time to get his weight up and I would say that 242 would be a good  weight for him because he’s only 6’2″.

He’s very strong for his weight already so the NFL personnel world may see that anyway.

On the field, Beasley looks like a Top-10 pick!
