From Andrea Adelson of ESPN:

Coach Dabo Swinney referred to Beasley's move from linebacker to defensive end as a "science experiment" because coaches were not sure whether it would work. Now, Beasley is set to join the starting lineup, hoping to give the Tigers a consistent pass-rushing threat.

"I’m unaware why he called it a science experiment," Beasley said. As a follow-up, I asked Beasley why he made this transition work.

"I guess I just bought into what they were trying to get done, just went out there and gave my all and focused during practice and during meetings," he said. "I think it’s been a blessing overall because the things that I really learned at tight end, I could use at defensive end, too, so it’s all tied into each other. And from linebacker, my explosiveness I can use at the defensive end position."
