Bottom Line

More from With the First Pick

Yes, Beasley did show out at the NFL Scouting Combine but he’s actually always been the best edge prospect. His aforementioned 33 career sacks in college show that he has been consistent. But the problem is the NFL scouting world had questions about his size and strength as he was listed at 235 pounds.

He answered those questions emphatically by coming in at 246 pounds and his bench press workout dropped jaws. Then in the athletic portion and in drills, he proved that he could move around as he always could. The media is calling him a combine sensation to cover up for being wrong about how they rated him.

So now, they have a reason to move him up or if he’s picked earlier than they thought, they can say it was because of the combine. But Beasley isn’t one of these guys that all of the sudden is someone because of what he did at the combine. The combine just simply showed why he has more sacks than anyone coming out in the draft, making him the best edge prospect.
