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. Mar 30 - 10:42 AM

Football Outsiders' Playmaker Score disappointingly ranks WR Dorial Green-Beckham as the No. 13 receiver in the class and offers Jonathan Baldwin and Yatil Green as similar historical prospects.

We'll allow FO's Nathan Forster to explain. "Playmaker Score sometimes has trouble with players like Green-Beckham, who had limited college action and thus are less likely to produce a sample size sufficiently meaningful to forecast their futures," Forster wrote. "However, Green-Beckham was not particularly impressive in either of his two seasons of college football." Indeed, DGB had only had only 883 receiving yards during his sophomore season, the most productive of his two campaigns, even though Missouri passed 414 times that year. As Forster pointed out, L'Damian Washington (893 yards) was actually the team's No. 1 receiver that year: "In contrast to Green-Beckham's high draft grade this year, Washington went undrafted in 2014 and has been kicking around various practice squads. Granted, Washington didn't run a 4.49 40-yard dash at 6-5, 237 pounds, but the point is that Green-Beckham's lack of elite production is a red flag in our model."

Missouri HC Gary Pinkel called former Tiger WR Dorial Green-Beckham "a pretty good kid that made a very, very serious mistake."

"I just want to make sure (NFL teams) understand this is a pretty good kid that made a very, very serious mistake," Pinkel said. "He needed some help with some things. ... He's a good kid with a good heart. He made a very, very serious mistake. He'll learn from it and hopefully it's going to help him out." At the school's pro day on Thursday, Pinkel told the media he's been giving NFL personnel executives positive feedback about Green-Beckham. DGB was kicked off the Missouri team after two marijuana-related suspensions and a burglary investigation and pushing a woman down a staircase.

Prior to trading their first-round pick in the Jimmy Graham deal, the Seahawks were "digging into" Oklahoma WR Dorial Green-Beckham, according to Charles Robinson.

"If he slides to second-round, watch Seattle," Robinson tweeted. It is impossible to predict DGB's landing spot due to multiple off-field issues, but the idea of "culture" and landing spot will have a major impact on a team's decision. DGB fits Seattle's need at the position of receivers who can win contested, and we think there is a chance he is available in the second round.

Oklahoma WR Dorial Green-Beckham "will need some time to develop on the practice field before he can become an impact playmaker as a pro," according to NFL Media analyst Bucky Brooks.

The reality is, Green-Beckham has not played in the last year, and he'll need some time to get back to true form. The raw but talented prospect had an impressive outing in front of evaluators at the combine, and "displayed enough humility to alter the perception of his character flaws," Brooks added.

Oklahoma WR Dorial Green-Beckham will work out for scouts at the school's March 11 pro day.

The 6-foot-5, 237-pound Green-Beckham ran a 4.49 forty at the combine. "Along with seeing him run the full route tree and catch the ball, NFL teams are eager to see his interaction with the coaches and how he carries himself," noted CBS Sports' Dane Brugler. "Green-Beckham's talent isn't a question, but his reliability is and the receiver could help himself considerably by simply being on time, hustling and following through with every drill asked of him. The sky is the limit, but it's up to DGB to sell himself as a sound investment." Scouts figure to see the absolute best version of Green-Beckham on Wednesday. His behavior that day is a talking point, but it shouldn't be factored into his evaluation. Remember the last big job interview you had? Did you act better or worse than you do in normal life? Was that version of yourself indicative of anything outside of a good faith effort to show you were seriously interested in working that job?

An NFL scout told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that Oklahoma WR Dorial Green-Beckham "may even be better than (Amari) Cooper."

"He's the wild card of all of them," said one scout. "He's a first-round talent, no question. He may even be better than (Amari) Cooper. He's that talented. But is there a team that will take a chance on him there?" DGB caught 87 passes for 1,278 yards (14.7) and 17 scores across two seasons at Missouri. Of course, he was kicked out of school after his sophomore season and sat out as a transfer on Oklahoma's campus in 2014. The 6-foot-5, 237-pound Green-Beckham ran 4.49 forty at the combine.

ESPN's Mel Kiper cautions that Oklahoma WR Dorial Green-Beckham is not the same caliber an athlete as Calvin Johnson.

Comparing DGB to Johnson has become more popular recently, but Kiper points out why that's a mistake. "Yes, DGB has the body type of Calvin Johnson, at 6-5 and 237 pounds," Kiper wrote. "But let's remember Megatron ran a 4.35 with a 1.52 10-yard split at 6-5 and 239 pounds. Johnson also had a 42.5-inch vertical. DGB is plenty athletic, with a 4.49 40 time and a 33.5-inch vertical. But he also has off-field questions to answer. Still, the size and skill set (while raw) is tantalizing." Green-Beckham "has the ability to be a similar pro prospect as A.J. Green and earn top-10 grades" based purely on skill, CBS Sports' Dane Brugler believes.

NFL Media's Bucky Brooks believes Oklahoma WR Dorial Green-Beckham "has the ability to develop into a Plaxico Burress-type playmaker as a pro."

"Green-Beckham's immense talent and potential will lead several teams to overlook his character issues on draft day," Brooks wrote. The analyst is undoubtedly right, though some teams will refuse to draft him based on those concerns. Earlier this week, for example, Ravens GM Ozzie Newsome announced he won't select any player with a domestic-abuse background.

Ravens GM Ozzie Newsome announced he won't draft anyone with a domestic-abuse background.

All such players have been eliminated from Baltimore's draft board. Ravens fans praying that WR Dorial Green-Beckham would fall to the Ravens at No. 26 overall now must turn their attention to other prospects. If the Ravens tab a receiver in Round 1, a prospect like Jaelen Strong would make sense. Baltimore released KR/WR Jacoby Jones on Wednesday, have Steve Smith Sr. turning 36 in May, and are trying to re-sign free agent Torrey Smith.

Oklahoma WR Dorial Green-Beckham is the "best deep threat in the draft," according to Fox Sports' Joel Klatt.

Klatt moved DGB up to No. 23 from No. 45 on his personal rankings. "Listing him at 23 is not an indication of overall skill, as I am still a bit nervous about his off-field problems and overall maturity," Klatt writes. Green-Beckham is a big framed receiver with good straight-line speed for his size, but by no means is he an athletic specimen.

Oklahoma WR Dorial Green-Beckham ran an "unofficial" 4.49 forty with a 10 yard split of 1.61.

This is at 6'5" and 237 lbs with 32 1/2" arms and 9" hands. DGB is a specimen who wins in contested situations, but also has nice yards after catch ability for his size. There are so many layers to green-Beckham's evaluation: off-field question, sitting out of football for a season, route running hangups. He still has a chance to be a top 15 selection.

Chiefs GM John Dorsey said he's done plenty of homework on Oklahoma WR Dorial Green-Beckham.

"Physically, we think he has all the gifts in the world," Dorsey said. "We've all admired him. All of us who have been in the state of Missouri and the Kansas City area have seen him afar, have admired his physical traits. ... We will be meeting him in the next couple days and I look forward to it." Green-Beckham measured in at 6-foot-5, 237 pounds at the NFL Combine, similar dimensions to Calvin Johnson and Kelvin Benjamin. DGB's game is far different than those two, however.

Oklahoma WR Dorial Green-Beckham measured in at 6'5" and 237 lbs at the NFL Combine.

DGB also has 32 1/2" arms and 9" hands. Green-Beckham is similar to Calvin Johnson and Kelvin Benjamin from a height/weight perspective, but the comparisons should end there. He is not Calvin Johnson on the field (no one really is), and DGB wins in a few different ways than Kelvin.

Oklahoma WR Dorial Green-Beckham "might be the most physically gifted wide receiver in this class," ESPN's Todd McShay believes.

"Even though he's raw and has had off-field issues, he still could be a late-first-round pick," McShay wrote. "What he's going to have to answer for are two marijuana-related charges while at Missouri, and an incident that caused him to be investigated for burglary and assault last offseason and subsequently kicked off the team." Zierlein recently interviewed an NFC director of personnel who didn't believe Green-Beckham should be taken prior to the fourth-round. "I think the consistent problems for Josh Gordon are going to leak over and hurt (Green-Beckham's) draft stock," the executive said. "He's tall and fast and has good hands, but he can't be trusted. Why would you take a guy like that before the third day?" The 6-foot-6, 225-pounder "has the ability to be a similar pro prospect as A.J. Green and earn top-10 grades" based purely on skill, wrote CBS Sports' Dane Brugler.
