View Full Profile as a NFL prospect that has helped himself this past weekend.
Beasley is a flexible athlete with very easy COD (change of direction) skills, showing a strong plant foot to start outside before redirecting and bursting inside to the pocket. He is very active and aware, playing with little hesitation and processing information quickly. Beasley has strong hands and good arm length, using his limbs to attack the chest of blockers to force them on their heels. A lean-muscled rusher, he needs to spend more time in the weight room and get stronger to better convert speed to power off the edge and shed blocks once engulfed at the point. But when he goes up against blockers in space, it's not even fair. Beasley reminds me of a mix of Bruce Irvin and Barkevious Mingo, which is high praise as both are former first round picks, but he has flashed that type of potential as a pass rusher.
