Vic Beasley is a player who can get to the quarterback. He's also another case where fans need to look past how he fits into a system (3-4 or 4-3) and realize that coaches are capable of finding ways for disruptive pass-rushers to get on the field and make plays. The Bengals had arguably the worst pass rush in the NFL last season, so if a player like Beasley is available here -- whether you think he's capable of playing as a 4-3 DE or better standing up as a 3-4 OLB -- he's potentially a great get. All he's done for the last two seasons at Clemson is disrupt offenses with his quickness, ability to remove the hands of blockers and bend off the edge and relentless energy in pursuit that always makes him a threat even to mobile quarterbacks who like to work outside the pocket.
