All The Vic Beasley Love Is Highly Disturbing


Recommended Posts

He is nothing but a work-out warrior, shades of Vernon Gholston. Before the combine he was a late 1st rounder and all of a sudden he is a top 5 pick? Please. Nothing changes the fact that he is a severely flawed prospect. And a significantly lesser prospect than Ray, Gregory, Fowler. Whoever takes him is going to be very, very disappointed. Hopefully it's not the Falcons.

The main thing dropping him was his weight, so when he went to the combine 10 pounds heavier than listed and still put up the best numbers, he shot up boards instantly because his film was already good. He's still pretty bad in run defense but that won't keep him out of the top 10... or top 5 for that matter.

I'm not a Beasley fan' but calling him a Gholston-esque "workout warrior" is just idiotic. Beasley had a TON of collegiate production to back up his Combine numbers.

I believe that he is fairly likely to be limited to a third down pass rusher specialist role in the NFL, but even that isn't a sure thing.

I think my Dupree advocacy is well documented. But even I have to laugh at a post like this. Beasley is a heck of a player, and if we get him I will not be (majorly) disappointed.

Weight was a factor but definitly not his main problem. He is a one trick pony that gets snuffed out very easily. Combine that with his atrocious run D and he is very underwhelming. Nothing but hype. The combine changed nothing. He is nothing but your proto-typical workout warrior.

I honestly don't think you know what a prototypical workout warrior is.

I think Dupree is the workout warrior of this class tbh.

No. Beasley shows an elite first step, and some pass rushing moves including a spin move that is underutilized but very effective. Beastley's knock is tackling, which Dan Quinn can correct.

If you believe Quinn can improve Beasley's tackling, do you believe he can instill a spin and a dip&rip into Dupree's repertoire? And if he can (as I believe), wouldn't that make Dupree, at 270 pounds and better in coverage, the better prospect?

both are for me but Dupree is worst

Thus proving you both completely dismissable and irrelevant. Both have a LOT of production to justify their draft status even without the Combine.

This.

They are both workout warriors. Problem is Beasley is being touted as a top 5 pick which is laughable to say the least.

Beasley has at least shown to have moves, including a lethal inside spin move. Dupree is just meh on the field right now. If we take him, I hope the simplistic scheme and Quinn's coaching helps him develop FAST.

Idk bro. I honestly haven't watched much of Dupree but his measures led are definitely off the chart. I wouldn't be disappointed picking Dupree but, if possible would prefer a trade down for him because I feel he can be had later than 8

I vote we turn this thread into a sexy Beasley gif thread where we can also talk about what we want for dinner. I'm thinking about just a snack night, homemade guac and chips, mozzarella sticks.

Might even make up some fruit salad. Have some leftover pineapple I cut up.

I'm willing to bend the rules a bit for a snack day, same way Beasley bends the corner all smooth-like. Maybe break out a Belgian triple or two and just relax on the futon. That'd be a nice spin on things.

What are you all in the mood for?

Show the one where he's powering thru the defenders to reach the qb i.e bull rush, or the one where he's beating a nfl caliber tackle

Beasley was the 2nd rated pass rusher behind Gregory at the start of the season and for whatever reason, probably doubts about his athleticism and size, he fell behind the likes of Fowler and Shane Ray. There was never any doubt about his talent on the field and after the combine his stock has shot back up again.

Glad you asked! smile.png

Crushing bull rush to sack the QB in around 2 seconds:

Beasley nailing his speed rush and finishing with a rip on Cam Erving, who will likely go in the mid-late first:

Beating a double team against Erving and the RB with a mixture of strength, lateral agility, and sheer athleticism:

Any more? The detractors are goofy, dude has to literally do it all apparently.

Do you have a gif of him saving orphans from a burning building?
