Overview:

Beckwith had a highly productive career at LSU, with 263 tackles, 24.5 for loss, and 7.5 sacks. He is a disruptive defender, a play maker, s hard hitter, and gets good pressure on the QB. He is also a sure fire tackler, and has great instincts. He does not have the best speed, but that does not hamper his game. He also is coming off an injury which kept out of LSUs Bowl Game. Beckwith, if he checks out medically, is a clear early day 2 pick, if not, he should be selected somewhere in the 3rd round area based on talent skills. But if he does not check out medically, I can see him slipping due to the torn ACL he has, as that will be a big deal right now, but if he checks out medically, and can be ready, he is a day 2 pick for sure.
