Beyer has a great deal of talent as an outside linebacker/defensive end hybrid. He ought to be perfect for the weakside end position at Michigan and looks almost like a clone of junior defensive end Craig Roh. He has some weight and strength to add, but the base level of athleticism is there to make an impact at the college level.
Unfortunately, it's tough to do much as a 215 lb. defensive end in the Big Ten. You can see in the above photograph that Beyer is just about the skinniest guy within sight, despite the fact that he's headed to a big-time football program. I would expect that Beyer will be heavier than 215 lbs. by the time he hits campus, but probably not enough to make his mark in 2011. There's an outside chance that he can contribute on the punt unit or as a third- or fourth-string end behind Roh and sophomore Jibreel Black, but the best thing for him to do would probably be to lift weights and eat eat eat.
