Bradley Scott Beckman (December 31, 1964 – December 18, 1989) was an American football tight end in the National Football League for the New York Giants and the Atlanta Falcons. He played college football at the University of Nebraska at Omaha and was drafted in the seventh round of the 1988 NFL Draft by the Minnesota Vikings. Beckman was killed in an automobile accident when he fell asleep on an I-85 near Lilburn in icy conditions on December 18, 1989. His death was the second one for the Falcons that year, and the third in the space of two years. Four weeks prior, offensive tackle Ralph Norwood died in a separate traffic collision; a year before, cornerback David Croudip died of a cocaine overdose. At the time of his death, the Falcons had played 15 out of 16 games in the season. Beckman had played in all 15 games for the Falcons up to that point, starting in two of them.
