He also had a career-high three interceptions against the Virginia Tech Hokies. He finished 1994 with 57 tackles, a then school-record eighteen deflected passes, and three tackles for a loss. In 1995, Beasley was recognized as a consensus first-team All-American and was a Jim Thorpe Award semifinalist.

The Jacksonville Jaguars selected Beasley in the third round (63rd pick overall) of the 1996 NFL Draft, and he played for the Jaguars from 1996 to 2001. His 1999 season for the Jaguars was his most impressive statistically, when he started all sixteen regular season games and amassed six interceptions, 200 interception return yards, and two interceptions for touchdowns, one of which against the San Francisco 49ers set the team record for the longest interception return at 93 yards. He also played for the New York Jets from 2002 to 2003 and the Atlanta Falcons in 2004. In his nine-season NFL career, he played in 121 games (105 as a starter) and compiled 423 tackles, 24 interceptions, ten forced fumbles and 8.5 quarterback sacks.
