Titans selected Missouri WR Dorial Green-Beckham with the No. 40 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft.
Green-Beckham (6'5/237) went to Missouri as the nation's No. 1 overall recruit in 2012, posting a combined 87-1,278-17 receiving line as a true freshman and sophomore. He was kicked out of school last April amid domestic abuse allegations, and had two prior marijuana-related arrests. "DGB" spent 2014 redshirting at Oklahoma, where he never played. Equipped with 4.49 speed, excellent hands, and superb body control, Green-Beckham's weaknesses are his 33 1/2-inch vertical, off-field history, and an inconsistent compete level. Albeit a megatalent, DGB is a classic boom-or-bust prospect like new teammate Justin Hunter. The two of them ideally would play on the outside for Marcus Mariota with sure-handed Kendall Wright in the slot. May 1 - 7:49 PM

Oklahoma WR Dorial Green-Beckham is "worth the risk" for the Tennessee Titans with the 33rd pick, according to CBS Sports' Dane Brugler.

The Titans actually brought DGB in for an official team visit during the pre-draft process, and it's possible the Titans next pick, could be all about getting Marcus Mariota more weapons. The Titans currently have WR Justin Hunter, and teamed up with DGB, that would give the Titans two big targets on the outside with Kendall Wright in the slot.

ESPN NFL Insider Jon Gruden calls Oklahoma WR Dorial Green-Beckham "a mystery man."

"He has tremendous size. I just did not see him play to that size," Gruden said. "He lined up on the left all the time when he did play, and there were too many plays where he was getting pinned into the boundary and became an ineffective receiver." The former coach also sees route running as an issue. "I'm not quite satisfied with what I see on tape and what I'm hearing off the field," Gruden said. Green-Beckham doesn't have the on-field (or off-, obviously) resume of a first-rounder, but his possession of truly athletic gifts might cause an organization to roll the dice this evening.

Oklahoma WR Dorial Green-Beckham is "longer than Demaryius Thomas" but "not the freak athlete like Calvin Johnson," an anonymous NFL scout told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

"Huge threat in the red zone," he continued. "Oklahoma had to hold him out of some drills because he was just dominating practices. He was (abusing) their starters, It wasn't even close." On the downside, DGB was never a No. 1 WR in college, didn't play last year, has small hands (9''), had the poorest vertical jump (33½) of the top 25 receivers and has multiple character concerns. "He's so big and so fast," another scout said. "There's just a lot of unknowns with him. He's a train wreck." Concluded a third: "He's as talented as anybody in the group but I wouldn't draft him. The best predictor of future behavior is past behavior. He could become Josh Gordon. He's going to be a hit immediately for whoever drafts him and then he's going to be a problem."

Oklahoma WR Dorial Green-Beckham "will be great or a zero in the league," according to NFL Media draft analyst Lance Zierlein.

"Questions of maturity are real and could torpedo his draft stock more than some think, but what should also concern teams is that the year of football he missed last season puts him behind in his education in the game at that position. He will be great or a zero in the league in my opinion," Zierlein wrote. While some teams have DGB crossed off their list in the first round, it's possible that his upside may be too hard to pass on, if he drops to the second round. The Chiefs, Dolphins, Vikings, 49ers, Rams, Titans, Ravens, Bengals and the Cowboys have had DGB in for pre-draft visits.

The Seattle Seahawks would "love to grab" Oklahoma WR Dorial Green-Beckham if he’s available at No. 63, reports TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline.

At least Seattle is being realistic, as "they expect the receiver to be off the board during the initial fifteen picks of round two." DGB has taken all sorts of character shots this offseason, but we were interested in a recent Milwaukee Journal Sentinel report that stated the Oklahoma staff "vouches" for and "loved" Green-Beckham.

Bob McGinn spoke with one NFL scout who noted the Oklahoma staff "vouches" for WR Dorial Green-Beckham.

"They loved the kid," the scout said regarding the members of the Oklahoma football program. "At Missouri, everybody that I talked to loves the kid. From a football standpoint, they'd bring him back 100%. But from a university standpoint he had too many issues." The off-field issues, as the scout put it, include weed, drugs and an altercation with a girlfriend. Teams do value schools' opinions of prospects, especially ones with question marks.

Former Missouri and Oklahoma WR Dorial Green-Beckham is visiting the Chiefs on Tuesday, according to Ian Rapoport.

Green-Beckham previously visited the Bengals, 49ers and Rams. He reportedly turned down a visit with the Cowboys. Perhaps DGB feels he will be off the board by the time the Cowboys select at 27. The Bengals are an interesting addition to the list, as the other teams have been linked to receivers.

Dorial Green-Beckham recently visited the Bengals and 49ers, according to Ian Rapoport.

As we always say, we have no idea if DGB will be selected int he first round or the second round. Green-Beckham is an easy mover who is fluid and will go up and get passes at the catch point. However, it is difficult to project his routes because he ran a limited tree... almost two years ago.

Oklahoma WR Dorial Green-Beckham "is a remarkable physical specimen, but an NFL team should weigh the risk/reward factor before offering Green-Beckham a big paycheck in a league intent on dolling out punishment at the hint of an impropriety," according to NFLDraftScout.com's Frank Cooney.

The analyst acknowledges that DGB has top-10 talent, but is spooked, as are many analysts, by the player's off-field transgressions. Green-Beckham didn't offer much on that subject when asked about it by reporters at the combine. "It's very tough for me. It's tough for me to stand up here and be able to speak in front of all you guys because I haven't spoken in the past year," Green-Beckham said. "It's very tough for me to just take that chance I had last year to sit out and not speak and be able to focus on the things that I needed to focus on off the field."

Oklahoma WR Dorial Green-Beckham "presents problems for defenses because of his size-speed combo (6-5, 237 pounds with a 4.49 40)," notes ESPN's Todd McShay.

"He doesn't gain much separation out of his cuts, but he doesn't have to," McShay wrote. "When the ball is in the air he can go up and get it, no matter how good the coverage is. He started to come into his own the last five games of his sophomore season." Green-Beckham had only 883 receiving yards during his sophomore season, the most productive of his two campaigns in college, even though Missouri passed 414 times that year. He's a boom-or-bust proposition.

CBS draft analysts are perfectly split on who the Texans will take at No. 16 overall.

Analyst Frank Cooney mentions Oklahoma WR Dorial Green-Beckham as a perfect fit in Houston. "The 6-5, 237-pound DGB boasts a Calvin Johnson-like skillset but could drop to the 16th pick due to off-field questions," Cooney wrote. "Even prior to his guiding Houston to an eight game improvement in 2014, Bill O'Brien showed remarkable coaching ability at Penn State in the wake of the Jerry Sandusky scandal. His ability to mentor could give Houston more confidence in gambling on a perceived character risk like Green-Beckham (or Washington cornerback Marcus Peters)." As for CBS' other projections, Rob Rang slots Houston Shane Ray (DE, Missouri), Dane Brugler gives them Malcom Brown (DT, Texas) and Pete Prisco projects Jaelen Strong (WR, Arizona State).

Oklahoma WR Dorial Green-Beckham visited the Ravens, according to Aaron Wilson.

The Ravens are unlikely to select Green-Beckham due to Ozzie Newsome's previous statements on not adding players with a (possible) history of domestic violence. DGB's draft projection is impossible to predict. He could be selected as early as the mid-first round or at the end of the second round. Expectations exist to result in disappointment, but Green-Beckham tested like an average athlete at the Combine.

ESPN's Kevin Weidl compares Oklahoma WR Dorial Green-Beckham to Demaryius Thomas.

"Green-Beckham compares well to Benjamin and Evans due to his freakish measurables and ability to create one-on-one mismatches in contested situations," Weidl wrote. "However, the player I see more of on tape is Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas. Green-Beckham is slightly taller but similar to Thomas coming out of Georgia Tech; both had raw athleticism but needed polish and weren't asked to run the entire route tree in college." On the basis of measurables and numbers, John Parolin of the Stats & Information Group sees Kelvin Benjamin and Mike Evans as comparables. "Beckham is 6-5 and 237 pounds with a 4.49 40 and 6.89 3-cone drill -- not an easy guy to compare other players to," he wrote. "He is Benjamin's height and weight (with smaller arms/hands/wingspan), with similar jumping numbers but faster (Benjamin was 4.61 in the 40) and quicker (Benjamin posted a 7.33 3-cone time). At almost 6-5 and 231 pounds, Evans' height-weight combination is similar but he

Oklahoma WR Dorial Green-Beckham is scheduled to visit the Vikings, according to Darren Wolfson.

There are many different layers of "troubled," and just like "character concerns" the term sits on a spectrum. Many teams likely feel DGB fits in both categories, but Mike Zimmer took on "red flag" players while with the Vikings. It is difficult to project where Green-Beckham is drafted, but expect him to not make it out of the second-round.
