2009 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Darry Beckwith, ILB, LSU

Beckwith completed his career at LSU and heads into the NFL with both a lot of positives and plenty of negatives. First of all, he has the experience to step in and make an immediate impact for some team at the next level (although surely not right away as a starter). The linebacker was one of two LSU true freshmen to see action in 2005 before stepping into a starting role as a sophomore. He started 23 games over his last two seasons in Baton Rouge, but what really makes scouts salivate is Beckwith's combination of size and speed (which has allowed--and will continue to allow--him to play either outside or inside). He is 6'1'' and 235 pounds and his 40 time registered at 4.65 at LSU's pro day; down from 4.77 at the NFL combine. Beckwith probably had visions of getting that time under 4.6, but it's still impressive stuff for a linebacker. The cause for concern is somewhat of a questionable past with injuries. He missed parts of every one of his last three college seasons, although no physical problem was major. A knee problem bit him in 2008 and forced two missed games during his senior campaign. Beckwith, who was Second-Team All-SEC performer as a senior, also struggles a bit in pass coverages. Right now he looks like he'll be hit-or-miss in the NFL, which probably means some team could be willing to take a chance on him as early as the third round. If Beckwith remains healthy, such a gamble could pay off.
