5. Vic Beasley, defensive end/pass rusher, Atlanta Falcons (Round 1, pick No. 8): I liked Beasley more than most last year and was impressed at the pop he can provide at his size. He started off strong, but like the rest of the Falcons, endured the rigors of an up-and-down season. The torn labrum he played with probably didn't help matters, either. While Atlanta did not do as much as, say, Jacksonville to improve the perception of its defense, the team is still running a version of the best scheme in the NFL. Atlanta's defense (like Jacksonville's, Seattle's, etc.) is adaptive instead of reactive, meaning that the goal is to force the offense to adjust. This is meant to eliminate extraneous responsibilities and an extended learning curve, which can help a fast player like Beasley play even faster.

Sounds good.
