is going through a NFL tour of teams at a rapid pace in the last few weeks leading up to the 2015 NFL Draft.

Beasley has already met with six or seven of the teams in the Top 10 of the upcoming draft.

The Oakland Raiders sent out a 4-man team including defensive coordinator Ken Norton, linebackers coach Sal Sunseri, defensive line coach Jethro Franklin to workout Beasley on Friday according to multiple reports.

The Raiders' two starting defensive ends in their 4-3 defense are currently Justin Tuck and Benson Mayowa. The Raider's front office loves speed and Beasley brings plenty of it on the defensive side of the ball.

The Raiders have the #4, #35, #68, #102, #140, #179, #221 overall draft picks in the 2015 NFL Draft. They will have to get him at #4 overall or do some wheeling and dealing on draft day to get the hot prospect in Beasley. The team has no problem picking defensive players high as they picked linebacker Khalil Mack last year at #5 overall.

Next week, Beasley has reported trips with the Washington Redskins and the New York Jets.

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.
