Former Clemson standout and Atlanta Falcons defensive end Vic Beasley was ranked on Monday as NFL.com's No. 1 Clemson draft pick since 2000.

"After his rookie season struggles, there were questions about whether the Falcons had made a wise selection in taking Beasley," NFL.com said. "There are questions no more. Beasley led the NFL in sacks in his second season with 15.5, helping the Falcons to an NFC title, and earning first-team All-Pro status."

In 2016, Beasley has 41 tackles, 15.5 sacks, six forced fumbles, a fumble recovery, and three pass deflections. For his career, he has 65 tackles, 19.5 sacks, eight forced fumbles, a fumble recovery, and five pass deflections.

The Falcons drafted Beasley out of Clemson in the first round (#8th overall) of the 2015 NFL Draft.

The top five draft picks out of Clemson listed in the article were Vic Beasley, DeAndre "Nuk" Hopkins, C.J. Spiller, Leroy Hill, and Dwayne Allen. Honorable mentions out of Clemson were Sammy Watkins and Justin Miller.
