Kelvin Beachum College And Professional Career
At Southern Methodist University, Beachum played left tackle for the offensive team. He started all four seasons for the Mustangs and was a member of their team that played in the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl. In those games, he played with Josh LeRibeus, who the Redskins would eventually select in the third round of the NFL Draft.
When Beachum was graduating from college, the majority of football analysts predicted that he would either be taken in the seventh round or become a priority undrafted free agent. Despite the fact that he played tackle in college, he was regarded as the 24th best offensive guard in the country.
Because of his height, many analysts and scouts had mixed feelings about where he should play. Beachum was eligible to participate in all of the activities and positional workouts at the NFL Combine, for which he had received an invitation as an offensive tackle.
