    Miami (U) LB Beason will enter draft

    UM's Beason to enter NFL Draft

    By Jorge Milian

    Sunday, January 07, 2007

    CORAL GABLES University of Miami junior linebacker Jon Beason said Sunday he has decided to skip his senior season to enter the NFL Draft.

    Beason is the second junior to announce he is leaving UM early. Tight end Greg Olsen said last week that he was entering the draft.
    More on the Hurricanes

    Beason, 6-feet and 236 pounds, led the Hurricanes this season with 91 tackles, including 10 for loss. He finished his UM career with a game-high 10 tackles in the Hurricanes' 21-20 victory against Nevada in the MPC Computers Bowl on New Year's Eve.

    Fear of a serious injury caused Beason to decide to go pro. Beason sustained a right MCL injury against Florida International on Oct. 14 and was forced to sit out the next week against Duke.

    "It was definitely a tough decision," Beason said. "I thought about staying because there was still time and an opportunity to get stuff done and win a national championship. But injuries are the No. 1 thing. I've never been hurt before, but after being so close to a season-ending injury, it was scary."

    Good Decision IMO, weak LB class and could potentailly be a First Round pick.

    I am pissed about this move, becuase beason is the heart and soul of miami's defense(I'm only mad cause the canes are my team) beason is a vocal leader and a warrior, I wish him well in the nfl and hope he stays injury free

    He may be small, but when he's on the field he is everywhere, and his heart for the game is HUGE, if we could pick him up later I would in a heartbeat

    Is he a mlb? He sounds like a stud. Maybe he will drop because of his height. We had one short lb turn into s stud?

    Beason would be a fine pick in the 2nd who cares if he is short he is 240lbs. and plays LB for the U.
