has a workout scheduled with the Atlanta Falcons at Clemson on Monday according to ESPN.

The Falcons will be looking at Beasley's ability to drop into coverage as a linebacker as well as his superlative abilities in rushing the passer.

Beasley said during Clemson's Pro Day that he grew up a big fan of the Atlanta Falcons (grew up only 60 miles outside Atlanta). "It's a high possibility, and that would be like a dream come true," Beasley said. "But whatever team I go to, I'm going to be exceptionally happy and treat that team like it's the Falcons, like I grew up rooting for them."

"But as far as the Falcons, Dan Quinn is a great guy. I saw him build that defense in Seattle, and I think he plans to do the same in Atlanta."

The Falcons have the eighth pick in the 2015 NFL Draft.

Beasley accumulated 33 sacks, an amazing 52.5 tackles for loss at Clemson and was a two-time first-team All-American. He was also selected as the ACC Defensive Player of the Year in 2014.
