Falcons LB Vic Beasley says he's an every-down player
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer

Rookie linebacker Vic Beasley has the label of being a situational pass rusher, but he told NFL.com that he feels he can make a difference on every down for the Falcons, despite his youth. 

Beasley, the eighth overall pick in this year's draft, racked up 33 sacks during his time at Clemson, earning him the reputation as a big-time pass threat, but he wants to show the Atlanta coaching staff that he can play in all situations. 

"I think I'm an every-down player. I think that's just motivation for me to go out there and prove that I can be an every-down player," he said. 

Beasley will get a chance to live up to that statement, as the Falcons plan to throw the rookie into the fire to help a shaky linebacker corps.
