The Norman Transcript's John Shinn reports that Oklahoma receivers coach Jay Norvell believes sophomore WR Dorial Green-Beckham's past "will be looked at very closely" by the NFL.
"Everything he brings will be looked at very closely," Oklahoma wide receivers coach Jay Norvell told normantranscript.com. "There's no doubt the NFL is changing." With Green-Beckham dealing with an allegation of domestic violence in his recent past, it's possible that his stock could have taken a bigger hit due to the stance the NFL has taken on this sensitive matter. DGB was dismissed from Missouri after unlawfully forcing his way into an apartment seeking his girlfriend, and then pushing a different woman down stairs. He was never charged. Shin believes that Green-Beckham should "put another year of distance between that incident and entering the NFL draft," because "it would help his stock." Before transferring to Oklahoma, Green-Beckham hauled in 59 passes for 883 yards and 12 touchdowns at Missouri. Dec 22 - 2:18 PM

Oklahoma head coach Bob Stoops mentioned that redshirt sophomore WR Dorial Green-Beckham hasn’t made a decision on whether to enter the NFL draft, according to Tulsa World's Guerin Emig.

DGB was dismissed from Missouri after unlawfully forcing his way into an apartment seeking his girlfriend, and then pushing a different woman down stairs. He was never charged. ESPN's Mel Kiper has noted that "Even though he was kicked off the team at Missouri, his talent level may be too tantalizing to pass up." Kiper believes that if DGB "comes back (he's enrolled at Oklahoma now), stays out of trouble, and plays well, he's a first-rounder next year." It's possible, if Green-Beckham made the jump to the NFL now, his name could be in the first round discussion.

ESPN's Mel Kiper believes Oklahoma redshirt sophomore WR Dorial Green-Beckham would have challenged Amari Cooper as the top WR in the draft "if not for his significant off-field red flags."

"Even though he was kicked off the team at Missouri, his talent level may be too tantalizing to pass up," Kiper wrote. Many analysts rate DGB as the draft's most physically talented receiver, though it's difficult to ascertain at the moment how far NFL teams will drop him down their boards (if he stays on them at all) due to his well-documented problematic past. "There are other good wideouts in this draft, and Green-Beckham could get passed on," Kiper wrote. "If he comes back (he's enrolled at Oklahoma now), stays out of trouble, and plays well, he's a first-rounder next year." We think Green-Beckham would be in the Round 1 mix if he declares early.

ESPN's Steve Muench and Kevin Weidl wrote that Oklahoma redshirt sophomore WR Dorial Green-Beckham "may be the most talented [WR]" in their rankings, but that he must overcome his off-field issues.

Green-Beckham has been arrested twice for marijuana possession, but the much more concerning question on his resume is that of an alleged domestic abuse incident that led to a police investigation and Missouri's dismissal of the receiver in the spring. The investigation closed without an arrest. Given the NFL's recent domestic violence rule changes, teams will look long and hard at the incident in their evaluations. As a player, Green-Beckham is "a long strider with the top-end speed, frame and body control to become a dangerous vertical threat in the NFL," according to the ESPN analysts.

Oklahoma WR coach Jay Norvell says redshirt sophomore WR Dorial Green-Beckham is "like a different guy" during his off year.

"He's been working really hard and doing a lot of great things off the field too. ... He's growing and maturing," Norvell said. DGB dealt with a domestic abuse incident at Missouri, which was one reason he is no longer with the program. He is able to practice with the Sooners this season, and we still think there is a chance DGB never plays a down for Oklahoma and instead jumps to the NFL.

CBS Sports' Dane Brugler wonders how the Ray Rice situation will impact Oklahoma redshirt sophomore WR Dorial Green-Beckham if he decides to enter the 2015 draft.

The star receiver was dismissed from Missouri after pushing a woman down stairs (amongst other transgressions). He was never charged. In announcing a six-game ban for first-time domestic abuse offenders, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell sent a letter to each team which stated first-time offenders could be suspended longer if circumstances warranted it, including "a prior incident before joining the NFL." Wrote Brugler: "So if Green-Beckham is involved in a domestic abuse incident while on a NFL roster, he would be subject to a harsher penalty than just the expected six game suspension. It's very possible Green-Beckham stays out of trouble once in the NFL, but nonetheless, it's a factor for teams to consider when deciding whether or not to draft the super-talented pass catcher."

Oklahoma athletic director Joe Castiglione indicated that the school wouldn't repeat the decision to admit redshirt sophomore WR Dorial Green-Beckham if it had do the decision over.

"If someone presented a case like that now, I think you would be fair to say that he probably wouldn’t be at Oklahoma," Castiglione said, clarifying that Oklahoma didn’t regret admitting the receiver. The quote has less to do with Green-Beckham himself, and more to do with public perception. SI's The Inside Read column spoke with several college officials who said it "will be more difficult for schools to rely on the fact that a player wasn’t charged or preach that a player has 'learned his lesson.'" DGB was dismissed from Missouri after unlawfully forcing his way into an apartment seeking his girlfriend, and then pushing a different woman down stairs. He was never charged.

Oklahoma HC Bob Stoops seemed to indicate that redshirt sophomore WR Dorial Green-Beckham intends to return and play for the school in 2015.

"That isn’t something that’s been decided," Stoops said of DGB. "Right now it seems that he wants to do that and is heading that way and we want to support him in every possible way." Green-Beckham will be eligible to practice and attend classes all year despite his eligibility appeal being denied. We still think it is 50-50, at best, that DGB actually stays and plays for the Sooners in 2015. His talent is incredible.

CBS Sports' Rob Rang ranks Oklahoma redshirt sophomore WR Dorial Green-Beckham as the No. 15 overall prospect.

"The character concerns which prompted Green-Beckham's transfer from Missouri will certainly require investigating but there is no denying his blend of size, acceleration and ball-skills," Rang wrote. "The skill-set is so rare, in fact, that DGB is likely to earn first round consideration in 2015 even though the NCAA ruled the junior ineligible to play this year." ESPN's Todd McShay calls DGB the draft's biggest boom-or-bust prospect. We probably won't know until January whether he'll bolt for the draft or return to play a season for the Sooners.

Oklahoma redshirt sophomore WR Dorial Green-Beckham "could easily be the top-rated wide receiver prospect" based on talent alone, writes ESPN's Todd McShay.

According to the analyst, DGB is the draft's biggest boom-or-bust prospect. "He's still an unfinished product on the field and he has some serious red flags off the field," McShay wrote. "He was dismissed from the Missouri football program in April after allegedly forcing his way into an apartment and pushing a woman down stairs (he was not arrested and is not facing charges), after some previous run-ins with the law during his time there. What he brings as a player is an elite combination of height, bulk and straight-line speed; he possesses good separation skills, a massive catch radius with good body control and overall ball skills, and excellent big-play ability." McShay wrote this analysis before Green-Beckham's appeal for immediate eligibility was denied. We might not know until January whether DGB will bolt for the 2015 draft or return to play a season for the Sooners. NFLDraftScout.com ranks Green-Beckham as the No. 39 overall player in the 2015 class.

Oklahoma redshirt sophomore WR Dorial Green-Beckham "has the ability to be a similar pro prospect as A.J. Green," writes CBS Sports' Dane Brugler.

Green-Beckham's appeal for immediate eligibility was denied last week, so the ex-Missouri Tiger now must decide if he'll jump into the spring draft or return to play for the Sooners in 2015. NFLDraftScout.com ranks Green-Beckham as the No. 39 overall player in the 2015 class. "Factoring in the character concerns, it would be unfair to stamp him with a [first] round projection this early in the process," Brugler wrote. "Green-Beckham has until mid-January to make a final decision on whether he will be a part of the 2015 NFL Draft class, so stay tuned to this situation."

Oklahoma redshirt sophomore WR Dorial Green-Beckham's appeal for immediate eligibility has been denied.

The school released the news via twitter, adding it accepts the decision. Green-Beckham transferred from Missouri this offseason, following a recent off-field issue. The Sooner prospect applied for a waiver appeal from the NCAA almost two weeks ago, but with the recent denial, it's possible he could enter the 2015 draft. In fact, we expect him to leave Oklahoma without playing a down for the team. He will be allowed to practice with the Sooners all season.

Oklahoma has officially applied for junior WR Dorial Green-Beckham's waiver appeal from the NCAA.

It is now up to the NCAA to grant or deny the appeal. Green-Beckham transferred from Missouri this offseason following a recent off-field issue. The Missouri program has wished him the best and Oklahoma is reportedly optimistic about the possibility of the NCAA granting approval. The decision could be the difference in DGB never playing a snap for the Sooners, as we think he would still enter the 2015 draft if declared ineligible. He will be able to practice with Oklahoma either way.

Out of 12 WRs watched, Josh Norris ranked Oklahoma junior (or redshirt sophomore) Dorial Green-Beckham as the top prospect at his position.

Rotoworld's own Josh Norris compares Green-Beckham to AJ Green because of his ability to get down field and body control to come down with contested catches. Louisville's DeVante Parker is the other name that landed a first-round tag to go along with DGB. Norris seems very interested in tight end to receiver convert Devin Funchess, but notes the Michigan prospect needs to be more consistent when facing tight coverage.

Oklahoma is "very confident" junior (or redshirt sophomore) WR Dorial Green-Beckham will be awarded immediate eligibility, according to The Oklahoman.

"Green-Beckham’s appeal will center around the fact that he was never charged in the incident that ultimately got him kicked off Missouri’s football team," according to beat writer Jason Kersey. This was the same incident where DGB reportedly broke into a home and pushed a woman down stairs. The Oklahoman adds Oklahoma will pursue a "run-off" waiver, which refers to players that were removed from programs for reasons "beyond their control." Oklahoma has not filed their waiver appeal at this time, as they are waiting for more paperwork from Missouri.
