Beasley was earlier named a first-team preseason All-American by Lindy’s, Athlon and Sporting news. Lindy’s ranked Beasley as the number-one defensive end in the nation and Sporting News listed him as the preseason ACC Defensive Player of the Year.

Last year Beasley had 23 tackles for loss and 13 sacks and was a consensus first-team All-American as he helped the Tigers to an 11-2 record and number-seven final ranking in the USA Today Poll. Beasley is one of three returning consensus All-Americans in college football for 2014. The others are Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston and Stanford receiver Ty Montgomery.
