was picked with the #13 overall pick by the New Orleans Saints in ESPN's Todd McShay's 2015 NFL Mock Draft 4.0.

"The Saints' biggest need areas are outside linebacker and offensive line, and they could also look at a cornerback, pass-catcher or nose tackle Danny Shelton, were he still on the board," McShay wrote. "I'll have them go with Beasley. I'm a little concerned by the fact that I don't see much power to his game when I study his tape, but the fact that he bulked up to 246 pounds and put up a linebacker-best 35 bench-press reps is encouraging. There's no questioning his explosive first step or college production, either."

Beasley accumulated 33 sacks, an amazing 52.5 tackles for loss at Clemson and was a two-time first-team All-American. He was also selected as the ACC Defensive Player of the Year in 2014.

McShay had several defensive end pass-rushers going ahead of Beasley including Dante Fowler Jr. (#5 to the Redskins), Randy Gregory (#6 to the Jets) and Shane Ray (#8 to the Falcons).

Other ACC players included in McShay's mock draft include FSU's Jameis Winston (#1), Louisville's DeVante Parker (#10), FSU's Cameron Erving (#18), Miami's Ereck Flowers (#19), Pitt's T.J. Clemmings (#25), FSU's Eddie Goldman (#27), UVA's Eli Harold (#29) and WF's Kevin Johnson (#31).
