BIOGRAPHY: All-Conference choice the past two seasons and named as an All-American after his senior campaign. Started extensively at both guard and center last year.
POSITIVES: Explosive, thick-bodied blocker who plays with a nasty attitude. Quick off the snap, gets his hands into defenders and fights hard throughout the action. Built low to the ground and plays with natural leverage. Solid position blocker who controls opponent.
NEGATIVES: Not dominant in the middle of the field, and must learn to finish blocks. Does not play with great balance.
ANALYSIS: A durable lineman with the versatility to be used at several interior blocking positions, Beekman offers starting potential at the next level.
