Prospect Profiles: WR Dorial Green-Beckham


Summary: Green-Beckham entered college amid tremendous fanfare. He was ranked as the No. 1 prospect of 2012 at any position by Rivals and No. 3 overall by ESPN, named the national player of the year in 2011 by Sports Illustrated, Parade, and USA Today, and even received live television coverage of his signing with Missouri. He racked up a national record of 6,353 yards while playing preps for his foster parent, John. As a sophomore, Green-Beckham's 12 TD catches were the 10th-most in FBS, but off-field incidents while at Missouri have created concerns among some evaluators.  

Stacking up: NFL Media analyst Mike Mayock ranked Green-Beckham has his fourth-best prospect at receiver after the combine, and recently slid him to a tie for fifth with Nelson Agholor, behind Kevin White, Amari Cooper, DeVante Parker and Breshad Perriman. Counterpart Bucky Brooks ranks Green-Beckham fourth, behind Cooper, White and Parker.

The decision to declare:"One more year could have prepared me and boosted my draft stock a lot higher, but I just felt like, personal-wise, this was the best opportunity," Green-Beckham said at the combine.
