It's decision day for Vic Beasley.
Clemson's All-America, junior defensive end has reached deadline day for declaring for early entry into the NFL draft.
Beasley has kept his options open, enrolling in and attending second semester classes, apparently comfortable waiting until deadline day to make a decision.
Beasley, who over the past two seasons has established himself as one of the nation's premier pass rushers, received a second-round grade from the NFL Draft Advisory Committee, but is being projected by some draft analysts as a likely late first-round pick.
Dabo Swinney said on Saturday that Beasley is torn about his decision.
Beasley's 23 tackles for losses this season ranked second nationally, and included 13 sacks, which ranked third nationally.
At 6-2, 235, he is undersized for an NFL defensive end, but likely a better fit for a pass-rushing outside linebacker in a 3-4 scheme.
Earlier, Clemson juniors Bashaud Breeland and Martavis Bryant joined Sammy Watkins in declaring for the draft. Prior to this year, Clemson had never had more than two players leave early for the NFL in one season.
Last year a record 74 underclassmen declared early for the draft, continuing a three-year trend as an increasing number of college players pass up their remaining college eligibility for the chance at NFL careers. . Prospects at least three years removed from high school are eligible to enter the draft.
NFL and NCAA policy allows a player to revoke the petition within three days of the NFL's draft declaration date. The NCAA allows college players to "test the waters" on one occasion. A player who has made an agreement to be represented by an agent, or accepts anything from an agent or anyone working for an agent, forfeits the option to change his mind.
