shows first round potential for the 2015 NFL Draft. He praises his rare athletic traits and his outstanding acceleration while he still questions his size and strength for the next level.

"Vic Beasley is a rare athletic specimen. He gets off the football, flattens the quarterback," Mayock said. "He's what the NFL is looking for. I think if he takes advantage of the Senior Bowl and shows nobody can block him, he's got a real chance to be a first-round pick in next year's draft."

"He's got rare athletic traits, he can accelerate off the ball and run the arc to the quarterback," Mayock said. "Teams are going to question his size and his strength. The problem he has is sometimes at the point of attack. That big tackle gets on him, both in the run and pass game, he doesn't have the length or the strength to get off of him."
