just signed a 4-year deal worth $14.50 million on Friday with the Atlanta Falcons.

The following is a best case scenario for Vic Beasley according to NFL.com. "Beasley thrives as the Falcons' designated pass rusher -- the role for which he was handpicked by new coach Dan Quinn, due to his explosive combination of speed, quickness and burst off the edge," said NFl.com. "With his electric rush skills, Beasley notches 10-plus sacks as a rookie despite his inexperience and slender frame."

Here is what NFL.com thinks could be Beasley's worst case scenario - "Beasley's build and questionable run-stopping skills make him a liability on the edge," said NFL.com. "Opponents elect to run the ball extensively at Beasley, forcing Quinn to choose between defending the run or having Beasley's pass-rush skills on the field in key moments."

Final projection was 35 tackles, eight sacks and four forced fumbles. Beasley's eight sack projection is the most of any defensive player on the list.

Beasley accumulated 33 sacks (25 sacks in his final 26 games) and left Clemson as the all-time sack leader and had an amazing 52.5 tackles for loss at Clemson. He was also a two-time first-team All-American and was selected as the ACC Defensive Player of the Year in 2014.
