Cerebral and powerful at the same time. Every snap, it appears he understands what defenses are throwing his direction, and he processes that information with ease. Strong punch and great footwork help him control the line of scrimmage. Not very good from side-to-side. Labors to move laterally and it shows with pressures against quicker defenders and certain blitz packages. Measured with 31.5 inch arms at the combine, placing him in the bottom 10 percent of offensive lineman.

OVERVIEW: Known for his experience and anchoring ability with the Wildcats, Beebe was a physical and emotional leader on the Kansas State offensive line for three full seasons, starting in 2021. He finished his career with over 50 games of action, two Big 12 Offensive Lineman of the Year awards and consensus AP All-American honors. An unbelievable feat for an underrecruited prospect, and now an underrated draft prospect. Most of the questions around Beebe will stem from a jump needed in athleticism and his shorter arm length. 

COMPARISON: Jonah Jackson
