In passing situations the Connecticut offensive line better be aware of where Oklahoma’s top pass-rushing threat is coming from. Beal is one of the most athletic linemen in the nation with his elite speed. That top-end speed is why many predict a position change to outside linebacker is in store when he plays for pay. Whether standing up or with a hand on the ground, Beal will use his quick first step to get around the edge. Even if his first move doesn’t win the day, the Big 12 product keeps fighting until the whistle blows or he gets to the quarterback. Once he has the opposing signal caller in sight, not many collegians are blessed with Beal’s closing burst. His superb instincts ensure Beal will make an impact in Glendale.
