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 tow years ago. Apr 18 - 3:38 PM

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.

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.
