Dorial Green-Beckham was one heck of a playmaker in college, when he was actually on the field. He only played two seasons of college football, but 17 of his 87 career catches went for touchdowns. The Titans saw enough during those two seasons to make him a second-round pick, No. 40 overall.
He played somewhat sparingly as a rookie (55.9 percent of snaps) and caught just 32 balls. Those 32 grabs ended up gaining 549 yards, though, and he also found the end zone four times. Not only that, but 30 of the 32 resulted in first downs.
Still, the Titans were so underwhelmed with Green-Beckham’s play (and his focus in practice, among other things) that they sent him to the Eagles earlier this offseason for a rotation offensive lineman. Green-Beckham’s first look with Philly fell incomplete, but this was his second:
Pretty sweet grab, DGB. That’s the kind of playmaking — back-shoulder, over the top — that can really help out Sam Bradford early on, or Carson Wentz whenever he gets his chance. Green-Beckham just has to prove that he’s worthy of being on the field in order to consistently have the opportunity to make those kinds of plays.
