Jeremy Beal
Round 7, Pick 247
Position: DE
Class:  4Sr
School: Oklahoma
Conference: Big 12
HT: 6-2.5
WT: 262
40 Time: 5.14
Biography: "Three-year starter awarded all-Conference honors as a senior after totaling 72/19/8.5 and breaking up seven passes. All-Conference an all-American as a junior after numbers of 70/19/11, one interception and pass break-ups. Sophomore totals included 61/15.54/8.5."

Positives: "Productive college defensive end with poor size/speed numbers for the next level. Explosive off the snap, quickly gets his hands into defenders, and shows an array of moves working to get off blocks. Breaks down well, is fluid in space, and plays with constant leverage. Forceful up the field, quick moving in every direction, and rarely off his feet. Keeps his feet moving on contact, fights to hold his ground, and displays good movement skills."

Negatives: Lacks natural bulk and strength and can be turned off the line by tight ends. Possesses a short burst of speed and does not have to pursue from the back side. Needs to be more physical.

Analysis: Beal was a productive pass rusher who consistently made plays behind the line of scrimmage since his sophomore season. He?s limited athletically and lacks great size for defensive end as well as the speed to play outside linebacker. Beal could be a situational pass rusher on third-down used out of a three-point stance and may also get looks as a middle linebacker.

Projection: 5-6
