Vic Beasley was the perfect draft pick for Dan Quinn’s scheme and is ready to make his presence known. Beasley will be used as a defensive end/outside linebacker but his job is simple, harass the quarterback. This will be his only objective and will work out of the 9-technique or 7-technique.

Beasley is a more talented Bruce Irvin who played under Quinn and will give the Falcons a much needed pass rush in 2015.
