Atlanta Falcons Defensive Line Coach Bryan Cox (a former NFL linebacker), is not real fired up about Vic Beasley. The Falcons Coach acknowledged that Beasley is an exceptional athlete… but still has to prove himself worthy of the comparisons to Denver Broncos star outside linebacker Von Miller. Check out his statement and share your thoughts by commenting.
Bryan Cox on Vic Beasley
“He’s showing the first-step quickness and the closing speed,” Cox said. “For sure, he’s stronger in the pass rush then he is in the run game. But this is gym class. We’ll see when we put the pads on how it goes. I’m not real fired up or real eager to say how well a guy is doing in shorts. To me, this is not real football. We’ll cross that bridge when we get to training camp.
“You see the potential. All the things that got him drafted, you see. But now you’re going to have to see the other part. When the pads come on, that’s where there’s separation.”
