The Denver Broncos received a Compensatory pick as a gift by the league and they used it on Jeremy Beal with the 247th overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft. The 6'2", 262 lb. Defensive End out of Oklahoma isn't the fastest player (5.14 in the 40), but he has terrific lateral agility, which may project him to a Linebacker spot. Still, even though he won't win any speed contests, Jeremy brings a steady and productive game. Just look at his numbers.
It all starts with watching film," he said at the combine. "You have to know when they’re going to throw the ball short or make a quick pass. If a team does that a lot, you’re not going to get to the quarterback, so you have to get your hands up and get the pass."
Jeremy was a 1st-Team All-Big 12 selection in each of his 3 years as a starter and was the first player in Sooners history with at least 8.5 sacks in three different seasons. He is the first Sooner to accumulate more than 200 yards lost on sacks.
He is a solid tackler, stays low and gives full effort to grab ballcarriers. He has a tendency to cause turnovers with his hard hitting style and tries to strip the ball when the impact doesn't cause a fumble.
