#1 back that up with the Blues spoilt for choice in the ba von riluowanying123 21.03.2018 11:52

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. -- Vic Beasley heard the grumbling. He was a wasted pick in the first round. He wasnt going to be able to play every down in the NFL.No ones talking that way anymore.Beasley has made a huge leap in his second season with Atlanta, giving the Falcons something they havent had in years: a fearsome pass rusher.He already has 10.5 sacks, ranking No. 2 in the league behind Denvers Von Miller. Its the most sacks by a Falcons player since John Abraham had 13 in 2010.Beasley wants more.Im not satisfied, he said this week, standing at his locker before practice. Theres more out there for me. I feel like Im just now grasping my potential.Beasley started every game as a rookie but hardly had the sort of impact the Falcons (7-5) were expecting when they drafted him No. 8 overall.At 6-foot-3 and 246 pounds, he was caught in between -- a bit too small to be a traditional defensive end, a bit too large to play outside linebacker. Some projected him as merely a situational player, coming in on obvious passing downs with the single-minded objective to get pressure on the quarterback.The Falcons, who are tied for first in the NFC South heading into Sundays game at Los Angeles against the Rams, thought he could be more. Coach Dan Quinn saw a hybrid player who would fit as an outside linebacker in the base defense, or was capable of lining up as a defensive end in the nickel package.It didnt happen right away. As a rookie, Beasley managed only four sacks on a team that had just 19 overall.Youve got to understand that youre brought here for a reason, he said. I didnt want to let one year get me down.Still, the criticism weighed on him. Beasley returned for Year 2 with a new drive and focus.Quinn noticed the change.Its the work ethic that, honestly, he came back with that set him off in terms of, `I want to go for it, the coach said. Those are the things that dont show up on the stat sheet.Beasley is more than just a pass rusher.As an undersized D-end, hes doing a good job in the run game, Quinn said. Hes light, but hes strong. Hes able to get his hands on guys and he can shed tight ends.It also helped that the Falcons brought in 15-year veteran Dwight Freeney, who has served as a mentor to Beasley and other young players on a defense that has started as many as four rookies.Hes shown an eagerness to learn, Freeney said of Beasley. Mentally, his football IQ is starting to grow, which tends to happen from a first-year to a second-year player. Hes starting to realize more. I try to help him out wherever I can.Beasleys first step is the thing that sets him apart. Hes so quick off the edge, its difficult for someone to block him alone. Offenses usually have to assign an extra blocker, or at least hope the tight end can get a bit a piece of Beasley to slow him down.I come off the ball pretty well, he said. Some things they can teach you. Some things are just God-given.After recording only one sack in the first four games, Beasley had a breakout performance at Denver with 3.5 sacks -- nearly matching the total for his entire career to that point.Since then, hes had two more multi-sack games.Yep, the Falcons do have a pass rusher.Finally.Hes in a good place, Quinn said. Mentally with his game, in his preparation, in his routine, hes really locked in.Game notes The Falcons announced a four-year contract extension for CB Robert Alford. Quinn said the team wants to work out a similar deal with its best corner, Desmond Trufant, who is out for the year with a pectoral injury. Tru totally embodies all the things were looking for, the coach said. Were hopeful that hell be with it for the long term as well. ... WR Julio Jones (turf toe), OT Jake Mattews (knee) and WR Mohamed Sanu (groin) missed another day of practice. Quinn said Jones would do some light drills and hoped to get limited reps on Friday.---Follow Paul Newberry on Twitter at www.twitter.com/pnewberry1963 .

NSW penpix ahead of Wednesdays State of Origin III rugby league match against Queensland at ANZ Stadium.Fullback - James TedescoAge: 23 Origins: DebutTedescos stunning NRL form forced Laurie Daley to pick him. Now its up to him to prove he is the future of the Blues.Wing - Blake FergusonAge: 26 Origins: 3Has had little impact on both games so far. Lucky to retain his spot. Is playing for his Blues future.Centre - Michael JenningsAge: 28 Origins:17Had an absolute shocker in game two in attack and defence. Has been an important player for the Blues but could be playing his final Origin game.Centre - Josh DuganAge: 26 Origins: 9NSWs player of the series last year plays his first match this year after missing games I and II due to injury. His battle with Greg Inglis will be crucial.Wing - Josh MansourAge: 26 Origins: 2The tackle-busting Panther has not looked out of place in Origin and has been great working the ball out of yardage for the Blues. Needs to get more involved in attack.Five-eighth - Jack BirdAge: 21 Origins: 1A huge challenge for the Sharks utility coming up against Cooper Cronk and Johnathan Thurston in the halves. But his unpredictability and versatility could be key for NSW.Halfback - James MaloneyAge: 30 Origins: 5One of NSWs best in another losing series. Looks genuinely capable of breaking the Maroons line almost every time he has the ball. Will be NSWs chief organiser with Adam Reynolds gone.Prop - Aaron WoodsAge: 25 Origins: 10His battle up front with Maroons forward leader Matt Scott has been one of the features of the series. Needs to get the better of him this time if the Blues are to avoid a whitewash.Hooker - Robbie FarahAge: 32 Origins: 15Holds his spot in the Blues side duue to the lack of an obvious successor as much as anything else.dddddddddddd Another long-term Blue for whom this could be his last game.Prop - Paul Gallen (capt)Age: 34 Origins: 22Granted the Origin farewell he has craved even if some say he doesnt deserve it. Will be keen to go out on a high but leaves behind a legacy of lost series after lost series despite his best efforts.Second row - Wade GrahamAge: 25 Origins: DebutFinally gets his debut after missing game two due to suspension. Should add a lot of variety to the Blues attack with his ball playing and kicking skills.Second row - Josh JacksonAge: 25 Origins: 5Has really come of age as an Origin player with two impressive efforts in the series so far. One player the Blues can build a future around.Lock - Tyson FrizellAge: 24 Origins: 1Enjoyed a wow of a debut, the challenge now is to back that up with the Blues spoilt for choice in the back-row next year.Interchange:Matt MoylanAge: 25 Origins: 2Has struggled to impose himself in Origin so far from fullback, but could do that with his ball playing skills from the bench against a tiring Maroons defence.James TamouAge: 27 Origins: 11Was barely sighted in Origin II in his worst game in the Blues jersey. Owes it to his teammates to atone for that performance.David KlemmerAge: 22 Origins: 5Hasnt had the impact he would have liked to this series. But he remains a key part of the Blues go forward.Andrew FifitaAge: 27 Origins: 5Has threatened in attack across the both Origins this year but never broken a game apart. Could do that with a new-look Blues attack in game three.
