    Beason gets look
    The Patriots are scheduled to put University of Miami linebacker Jon Beason through a private workout today in South Florida.

    Beason, a projected first-round pick, is considered one of the most athletic linebackers in the NFL Draft.

    At 6-feet, 236 pounds, he is not as big as Mississippi's Patrick Willis and Michigan's David Harris, who are considered traditional "mike" linebackers for a 3-4 defense. A team captain at Miami, Beason spoke last month at the NFL Combine about the possibility of playing in a 3-4.

    “I think it would be a challenge, because at UM we run a 4-3. I talked to some scouts and coaches and they see me as a 'mike', an inside backer in a 3-4," he said. "I don’t think it would be that different. It’s still a two-gap responsibility, so it’s a lot like what I do at 'will'.”

    Beason is represented by Marty Magid of MRM Sports & Entertainment, LLC, which is based in Conshohocken, Pa.

    IMO, this guy guy is too small to play ILB for the Pats. But then I think if Zach Thomas or London Fletcher could play ILB for us and I think that they could, quite well.

    this guy could easily put on 10~20lbs in a pro-style program

    better question is whether or not that extra weight would negatively impact his playing

    What I like best about this story is the fact that the Pats are showing interest in a LB that is projected as a R1 pick. We all know that BB has not shown a tendency to take LBs that high. I, for one, have regretted that for years. While the vets we've brought in have, for the most part, been good ones, we have also seen a great many outstanding LBs drafted in R1 over the past few years. It's about time we got one!

    I'm sure just by the fact the patriots have announced this interest in him will get him drafted before #24.

    Everyone thought Tedy was too small to play ILB also.

    Maybe that's the plan, so another player drops to 24?

    "Beason is considered to be one of the most athletic LB's in the draft".
    That basic quality has always been hallmark for BB.

    Is this any different from the two Beason threads that were merged on the draft forum? One which had the same title?

    I feel grumpy today.
