Falcons Rookie Vic Beasley Impresses on the First Day of Camp
FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) – New Falcons coach Dan Quinn isn’t surprised how Vic Beasley stands out among the team’s rookie class.
After watching his first rookie minicamp with Atlanta, Quinn was impressed with Beasley’s quick first step against the run and the pass.
Beasley, a former Clemson standout and the eighth overall pick of the NFL draft, will play defensive end and outside linebacker in Quinn’s 4-3 scheme.
Quinn spent the last two years as Seattle’s defensive coordinator, helping the Seahawks win a Super Bowl and two NFC championships.
Cornerback Jalen Collins, Atlanta’s second-round pick, was held out of Friday’s workout as a precaution. The former LSU standout had right foot surgery March 19 to repair a fracture, but Quinn doesn’t expect him to be sidelined very long.
