Featured Prospects

Round: 7
Pick (Overall): 44 (247)

Pick Analysis: The fact that Denver selected Beal could make his chances of making the team slimmer, as he was better suited for a 3-4, but the Broncos need all the help they can get on defense. They might find a place for him to fit.

Overview

Beal is an undersized college defensive end that will likely have to move to a 3-4 outside linebacker in the NFL. He explodes off the ball, shows good lean to get around the corner and has a vast repertoire of pass rushing moves. He has an outstanding motor and never gives up on plays. He is a fluid athlete that flashes the ability to play in space and he has a great feel for the game and should hold up in zone coverage. Beal lacks experience as a linebacker, but has the tools to play there and will likely hear his name on Day 2.


Strengths

Beal is thickly built with a quick first step. Possesses solid instincts, always keeps contain and quickly recognizes screens and draws. Relentless pass rusher that plays with good leverage and shows effective counter moves. Fluid in transition and flashes the ability to cover underneath routes in zone coverage.

Weaknesses

Lacks the closing burst to consistently get after the quarterback and make plays from the backside. Does not show the strength to anchor against the run. Will not be able to stick with running backs and tight ends in man coverage at the next level. Lacks the experience playing in a two point stance.

Grade

5.9
