DORIAL GREEN-BECKHAM (Second-Round Pick, 41st Overall in 2015 NFL Draft)
Dorial Green-Beckham was one of the more polarizing figures during his Tiger days. The wide receiver spent two seasons as MU’s biggest weapon, but off the field drama prevented him from going higher in the draft.
Green-Beckham was arrested on marijuana charges twice during his time in Columbia. He was suspended for the Tigers’ next game the first time he was arrested and the second time the marijuana was found to not belong to him.
The legal problems didn’t stop there, however, as Green-Beckham ultimately was dismissed from Missouri due to allegedly pushing a woman down a flight of stairs. Green-Beckham transferred to Oklahoma, where he didn’t play a single snap in the Sooners offense.
It is worth noting that in both of his NFL seasons, DGB has been catching passes from rookie quarterbacks.
The Missouri native entered the draft after the 2014 season, despite not playing at all, and was projected as a first round talent. The legal problems concerned teams though, and Green-Beckham slid all the way to the second round of the 2015 NFL Draft.
The Tennessee Titans decided he’d be a good fit for their rebuilding process, but the former Tiger didn’t do much in his one year with the Titans. He would later be traded to the Philadelphia Eagles, where he’d deliver even poorer results. He currently has totaled 68 receptions for 941 yards and six touchdowns in two seasons with two different teams.
It is worth noting that in both of his NFL seasons, DGB has been catching passes from rookie quarterbacks, but he’s still not the electric receiver that fans thought he’d be in the pros.
