Scouting Report
A first-team All-American as a senior, Beeler was part of an offensive line that allowed star quarterback Andrew Luck to be sacked just six times in 2010. Despite his excellent pedigree, Beeler - who began his career at Oklahoma before transferring to Stanford - wasn't invited to the NFL scouting combine. A lot of that has to do with his size. Beeler is relatively light to be playing on the interior of an offensive line, so he could use some time in the weight room to bulk up. A cerebral player who made two appearances on the second-team Pac-10 All-Academic team, Beeler has a solid first step off the snap but doesn't display great balance and isn't a standout drive blocker. He shows solid lateral movement in pass protection but isn't very good snapping out of the shotgun, something that could be a big red flag to teams. Beeler also tends to be a bit slow in recognizing zone blitzes, another obstacle he'll have to overcome if he plans on making it at the next level. The tools for success and the accolades are certainly there for Beeler, but he'll definitely need to add some weight to play on Sundays. Look for him to go somewhere between the fifth and seventh rounds.
