WR. Missouri. Dorial Green-Beckham. 2. player. 35. 2nd round, Pick #8 (#40th overall)

Dorial Green-Beckham. DGB. University of Missouri, not University of Oklahoma.

Although the school doesn’t recognize Green-Beckham as one of their own, I think he does deserve at least some attention considering how important he was for the team’s 2013 SEC Championship run.

Green-Beckham may be one of the luckiest receivers from the draft, because he gets the honor to be on the receiving end of some Marcus Mariota passes.

I know the guy has off-the-field issues, but he’s said that those are behind him. He’s said that before, but let’s see if some money will motivate him to behave. Considering he has received comparison’s to receivers like Calvin Johnson and Randy Moss, it’s hard to find fault with the pick.

Mike Mayock weighed in on the Titan’s second selection:

"“He sat out last year after transferring from Missouri to Oklahoma. He has significant off-field issues. However, he is a freakish height-weight-speed guy. He looks like a young Randy Moss.”"

DGB slid in the draft and could have been an easy round one choice if it weren’t for his off the field issues during his time with the Missouri Tigers. It’ll be interesting to see if Green-Beckham gets his act together in the pros, and if he does, the Tennessee Titans got themselves a legitimate wide receiver in 2015 and beyond.
