Summary: Jeremy Beal is an interesting prospect in that while coming out of Oklahoma's hybrid defensive scheme can be a plus, where does he fit in the NFL on a team running either the 3-4 or 4-3? He was just good enough to be productive in a lot of areas at the collegiate level, but professionals are going to shut down a lot of what he was able to accomplish in Norman. For example, he is not really fast enough to make a smooth transition to outside linebacker and not really big enough to hold his down as a defensive end. His intangibles are his greatest asset because the team drafting him is going to do so because of his potential to overcome these obstacles.
Player Comparison: LaMarr Woodley. I hate to saddle Beal with a comparison like this, but in a lot of ways it fits. Woodley was another "tweener" coming into the draft with question marks about his speed and ability to convert to a 3-4 outside linebacker. He also has a similar frame. Beal would obviously love it if his career took the same path.
Exactly and now they also have trade assets. Grasu could get a pick from a center needy team, Kush can back up Whitehair. Glennon can head to AZ for a pick when Palmer gets hurt or continues his poor play. Someone may want to gamble on Kyle Fuller and give up a late pick if he doesnt impress the Bears staff. Amos or HJQ could get a 6 or 7 from a safety needy team.
I was waiting for this comment. Im not saying that their gonna have the same careers as these dudes. Thats imposible. I compare them to who they have similar games to. Just so people can get an idea how these people play. All fun. I got the best mock out you better take it seriously.
