Vic Beasley Jr. was brought in to do one thing. Rush the passer. Beasley’s first NFL regular season game will be on prime time television just like Coleman and will be expected to have a good game. Beasley is calling for 10 plus sacks in his rookie year and hopes to get off to a good start.

Beasley is going up some of the best tackles in his first few games, but has shown that he can go up against the best. Beasley will be under high scrutiny in 2015. The Falcons and the fan-base are relying on him to be the savior of thee pass rush and bring this Atlanta defense a lot of success.
