Beachum is very quick off the ball and has an obvious sense of urgency to his play. He has a good first step to get out in front and gain position. When working up field, he has very impressive short area quickness and footwork. He is able to throttle down his weight instantly to fit on moving linebackers, and he really impressed in the limited exposure he had working in space while playing tackle. Beachum shows smooth, controlled lateral agility when engaging his pass set.


Beachum is a soft prospect after putting four years on film. Although he comes off the ball and moves quickly, he is a non-explosive type who struggles to generate push on his man off the snap. He struggles in the run blocking game, which doesn't bode well for his development and projected move inside to guard. He didn't get many opportunities to showcase classic run blocking within SMU's scheme, and for NFL teams it will be somewhat of a crap shoot in terms of projecting his ability to effectively move to guard. Kelvin is a mirror and patty cake blocker who was effective and productive at SMU, but he has questionable NFL-transferable skills.
