Charles Robinson of Yahoo Sports reports that Missouri WR Dorial Green-Beckham could be the name to watch in terms of the second tier of receiver prospects.
Evaluators around the league reportedly feel as though he has the talent to be among the first tier, but the obvious off-field concerns will likely factor into his draft status.
According to Robinson, Green-Beckham has been removed from a lot of draft boards. However, Robinson mentions that there are a few teams that have gotten the green light from ownership to take him after extensive background work.
Robinson specifically mentions that Texans at No. 16 and the Bengals at No. 21 as two teams to watch for DGB.
There are obvious concerns regarding Green-Beckham after his arrests for possession of marijuana, and the incident in which he reportedly forced his way into Missouri student’s apartment and pushed her down a set of stairs.
During his two years at Missouri, Green-Beckham caught 87 passes for 1,278 yards receiving and 17 touchdowns.
We have the Chiefs taking Green-Beckham at No. 49 overall in our recently updated two-round NFL Mock Draft.
