I didnt know Beasley has only been a true DE for only 2 years...Was a running back/ TE/ Athlete coming into Clemson.... 32 sacks in his last 36 games (wasnt a starter in his sophomore year.. a rotational guy but lead the team with 8 sacks) .. As a stater his last 2 years.... 25 sacks in his last 26 games .. And he set Clemson sack record

This dude is just scratching his potential

Listening to Dabo.. He is also freakishly strong to (the 35 reps show that) .. The guy just needs good coaching

Well I'll say this jbo... that's why i'm not that worked up about his ability to defend the run. Once he gets his technique down with the coaches he'll be solid imo...

With all this hype I'm worried you guys will be disappointed if he gets even 8-10ish sacks (which would have led Seattle's D last year, funnily enough)

I'm a huge Beasley fan but maybe we should temper expectations.

8-10 sacks is good

He plays the one of the best left tackles in football week 1 on national tv. Hype train will be at an alltime high if he produces.

I agree

He did say that he was going to get double digit sacks his rookie year though, I'm sure many on this board will hold him to that statement.

setting the edge starts from the bottom up, not upper body strength...

This interview must of taken place before day 3 when we took Grady. Would love to hear some tidbits about his game from Dabo too.

But 500 plus bench? 600 plus squat? Sounds like he will be able to play the run just fine LOL.

Don't get me wrong, I think he easily could. But people need to keep in mind it's what, 4 or 5 players who've ever done that their rookie year? In all of NFL history? There's a precedent set. On top of that, Seattle's defense hardly ever has double digit sack artists...I think the most they had last year was 7 for a player, and I'm pretty sure the year before no one was in the double digits either. I think he can do it, but I'm not going to be disappointed if he doesn't, as long as he improves the defense a good bit.

If he has double digit sacks, he's pretty much a lock for DROY. "Expecting" that is hard, even if Beasley himself is confident he can do it.

they're way deeper at pass rusher than we are though...at least on paper.

and 2 of those 4 came in this era...passing league, more drop backs, more sacks...
