It should come as no surprise that Vic Beasley has been become a hot item on the NFL draft conjecture front.

NFL teams are ready to jump - and pay well - for quarterback-harassing defensive ends, and Beasley's combination of speed, strength and production - 10 sacks and 15 tackles for loss so far this season - look like a winning combination.

Especially when you consider how relatively young he is at his position.

NFLDraftInsider.com publisher Tony Pauline stoked the fire on Monday when he tweeted that Beasley, per unnamed sources, has indicated that he will declare himself eligible for the NFL draft after the season.

Beasley is a redshirt junior who spent his first two seasons bouncing among position trials before landing at defensive end and transforming himself into one of the nation's most dynamic pass rushers.

Again, no surprise; and definitely something worth keeping an eye on.

Very Good Year for Vic - except against the seminoles.
Another year at this position would probably be worth draft lift for the following year.

I thought this would happen, GMs are looking to draft pass rushers. If he continues to have a good year, he may as well leave early because his stock can not get any higher. Mel Kiper believes he is a top 25 pick right now. Selfishly I want him to stay in Tiger Town but he has to do what is best for him and it will be difficult for him to pass up the first round of the 2014 draft.

But where does he fit, best case a 3-4 OLB in a pressure scheme. Long story short he will need to learn how to cover, at least a little bit. With the right team Vic can do well. (Pittsburgh, Denver?) Kiper is a hack with a 50's hairstyle. With him it's all one big self promotion. Gruden all but ripped off the Emperor's clothes on the draft broadcast.
