1. Vic Beasley Jr. Has to Become a Threat
Vic Beasley Jr. might just be the most maddening player the Atlanta Falcons have drafted in the last decade. He spent his first season as an expected bust, looking beaten and bullied often on the line of scrimmage.
Enter into the 2016 season and Beasley reached his potential becoming a terror for opposing quarterbacks. Vic piled up a League leading 15.5 sacks and impacted the pocket consistently.
Last season Beasley moved positions and rarely flashed on the screen as he did in 2016. This season he hasn’t been anywhere to be found. When he does show up it is rarely for the right reasons, it is because he was demolished by an opposing tackle or misses a key tackle in the hole.
Beasley has registered a single sack this season. For a pass rushing specialist that simply won’t cut it. Beasley needs to consistently apply pressure or drop back to outside linebacker. His current level of play simply won’t cut it as a starter.
