Beasley immediately slides in as the starter at Dan Quinn's all-important LEO position. His speed and explosion off the snap makes him close to a perfect fit, and he's drawn favorable comparisons to Von Miller and Cliff Avril. He'll have to beat the competition there, but he should be the starter over players like Stansly Maponga and O'Brien Schofield when all is said and done.
He vastly upgrades the Falcons' pass rush — a unit that ranked second to last in the league in sacks with just 22. On the other hand, Beasley's run defense leaves a bit to be desired. But with his pass rushing ability, the Falcons can live with that negative, and he should immediately step into a major role for a Falcons defense looking to deliver better results.
