ESPN’s Vaughn McClure reports that Clemson pass-rusher Vic Beasley is scheduled for an on-campus workout for the Atlanta Falcons today.
Beasley hails from Adairsville, Georgia, roughly an hour north of Atlanta and grew up a Falcons fan. Earlier this month, Beasley indicated that playing for his hometown team would be a “dream come true.”
Beasley potentially could play either defensive end or outside linebacker if selected by the Falcons, although he’s more likely to be considered for the former position. Beasley is a bit undersized by NFL standards, measuring in at 6’3″ and 245 pounds during the Combine. He was able to add an extra pound for his pro day in early March.
Beasley wowed at February’s Combine, scoring some of the best times and measurables in all the drills among his position group. Beasley clocked a 4.53-second 40-yard dash, lifted 225 pounds 35 times in the bench press, and kept 41 inches in the vertical jump.
Beasley was a two-year starter at Clemson, piling up huge production his last two years. Over that span, he recorded 78 tackles, 44.5 tackles for loss, 25 sacks and nine pass breakups. He also forced six fumbles and recovered two, both of which he returned for touchdowns. As a sophomore at Clemson, Beasley recorded 18 tackles, eight tackles for loss and eight sacks despite serving as a reserve.
