WATCH: Robert Beal Jr.’s best highlights from University of Georgia
Robert Beal Jr. could prove to be one of the San Francisco 49ers’ best picks in their 2023 draft class but will need to find a way to buy himself some playing time before fans can get a good look at his talent.
He was a standout on the University of Georgia’s defense last year, playing a key role on the Bulldogs’ defensive line. Beal’s athleticism should translate well to the NFL, and with some luck, he could factor into the 49ers’ plans sooner than some expect.
Check out his best college highlights below to get more familiar with Beal’s game ahead of the 2023 season:

49ers make a good upside pick with Robert Beal Jr. Was a rotation player at Georgia but would have been best defensive player at a lot of other schools. Explosive athlete who gets involved against run. Closing speed is wild: pic.twitter.com/VN8PJKOEYE

Robert Beal Jr. played a lot of football in five seasons with Georgia and has the length to become a decent rotational pass rusher for the 49ers. 48 pressures and 9 sacks over the last two years. pic.twitter.com/61cWZYnx9M

Robert Beal Jr is all of 6’4 250. Watch #33 drag the double team and disrupt the QB forcing an incomplete pass
Beal will be an interesting project. Has the upside and the raw strength, just needs to refine some technical things to reach his full potential. #DraftTwitter pic.twitter.com/HXgZB4ye9d
