was picked with the #8 overall pick by the Atlanta Falcons in Sports Illustrated 2015 NFL Mock Draft 1.0.

Beasley injected himself into the top-10 conversation with a strong combine showing, where he weighed in at 245, ripped off 37 reps in the bench press and ran a crisp 4.53 in the 40. Atlanta is looking for a sizable defensive improvement under new head coach Dan Quinn. (via SI.com)

Other ACC players picked in the first round of the mock draft included FSU QB Jameis Winston (#1), Louisville WR Devante Parker (#12), Pittsburgh OT T.J. Clemmings (#16), FSU DT Eddie Goldman (#23), Miami OT Ereck Flowers (#25) and FSU C/G Cameron Erving (#32).

The record-breaking Clemson defender was projected to the Chargers (#17 overall) earlier on Tuesday by a mock draft by USA TODAY.

A few mock drafts had Beasley slipping out of the first round before his display at the 2015 NFL Combine.

Beasley wowed scouts at the NFL Combine with his the following stats - 40-yard dash time of 4.53, broad jump of 10-10, 20-yard shuttle of 4.15 seconds, three-cone drill time of 6.91 and 35 bench press reps of 225 pounds. He measured in at 6-3 246 pounds with 32 1/2" arms and 9 3/8" hands at the NFL combine on Friday morning.

Beasley accumulated 33 sacks and an amazing 52.5 tackles for loss at Clemson.
