Mularkey: Dorial Green-Beckham needs to put in more work

ESPN - [Full Article]

Dorial Green-Beckham flashes and fades, flashes and fades.

Tennessee Titans coach Mike Mularkey continued to lament DGB's inconsistency after the Titans scrimmage Monday night. Green-Beckham turned a good pass from Matt Cassel into an interception.

How does a still-raw receiver such as Green-Beckham learn to not allow it to happen?

"That's spending extra time when nobody is watching," Mularkey said. "That's doing things when nobody is watching. That's in the classroom. I think it's just putting the work in without being directed by anybody. Doing it yourself."

I asked if Mularkey was suggesting DGB is not doing those things.

"I would do it more," he said. "I mean he does do it. I would do it more."

Fantasy Impact: 

The author went on to say he can't imagine a WR with the size and athleticism of DGB doesn't make the team, but he's going to have to start putting in the work and earning the trust of the coaches and quarterback. It appears rookie Tajae Sharpe and Rishard Matthews are running ahead of Green-Beckham, according to the story.
