BIOGRAPHY: Three-year starter awarded all-Conference during his junior season. Senior totals included 51/1/.5, when he missed time with
a knee injury. Totaled 65/6.5/1.5 as a junior after 65/4/2.5 during his sophomore campaign, when he was used at outside linebacker.
POSITIVES: Smart, instinctive linebacker who displays a terrific head for the game. Quickly diagnoses the action, remains disciplined
with assignments, and takes good angles to plays. Flows well laterally, cuts off the corners from running backs, and displays
a burst up the field on the blitz. Flashes on the scene, and plays with a good degree of explosion. Breaks down well, and
wraps up tackling.
NEGATIVES: Lacks top pursuit speed. Slow to shed blocks and easily knocked from his angle of attack.
ANALYSIS: Beckwith has been a real leader on the LSU defense and one of the more consistent linebackers in the nation. He gets the most
from his abilities, and he consistently put himself in a position to make a play on the ball. Beckwith does not possess great
upside, but he is a very consistent linebacker with starting potential for the next level.
