CLEMSON, South Carolina — Clemson All-American defensive end Vic Beasley put on another stellar show for NFL personnel.

The school's all-time sacks leader worked out at his familiar defensive line spot, and then with linebackers during the Tigers pro day.

Beasley was a NFL combine headliner last month, running a 4.53-second time in the 40-yard dash and lifting the 225-pound weight 35 times — both top showings among defensive linemen and linebackers in Indianapolis.

While Beasley didn't run or lift Thursday, he went through extended drill sessions at both positions in front of 72 evaluators from all 32 NFL teams, including New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick.

Beasley's stock has risen since the combine, from being projected as a late first-rounder to possibly being a top-10 pick in several mock NFL drafts.
