Clemson may not be having the season they had last year, but Vic Beasley is. Beasley is averaging a sack every game this season.
Clemson is known for having stand out pass rushers. The next in line, is Vic Beasley. Look at Vic Beasley has been extremely productive for Clemson. Since he has become a starter in 2012, he has had 29 sacks, including 8 this season. He is averaging 10 sacks per season, since 2012, which would be a good number to have in the NFL.
When Clemson played FSU, possibly their toughest game this year, Vic Beasley came up with 2 sacks and 1 pass defensed. Against Georgia, Beasley came up with 1 sack and 1 pass break up. Against NC State, he came up 1 sack, 1 hurry, and a fumble recovery for a TD.
Beasley showed good playmaking ability to make plays, and consistently get after the QB. He faced two QBs with impressive size in Jacoby Brissett, and Jameis Winston. If he wasn’t able to get to the QB, he got his hands in the air to bat the pass down, and take the QB’s vision away. He also came up with the ultimate play with a sack, strip, fumble recovery, and a TD.
Vic Beasley is a little undersized at 6’3 235 but he knows how to use his speed, to get off blocks. Beasley’s future in the NFL looks to be a situational pass rusher. With his speed and ability to bend around the corner, he should have success getting after the QB on 3rd downs. Look for Beasley to go on day 2, probably in the 3rd.
