Whiz: Titans WR Dorial Green-Beckham is 'making progress'

The Tennessean - [Full Article]

Three weeks into his first training camp, Dorial Green-Beckham is making strides in his development, looking more confident in his patterns and getting open more often. But like most rookies, Green-Beckham – who missed almost all offseason work because of a hamstring injury – is still learning as well.

“I don’t think there is any question that Dorial Green-Beckham is making progress,” Titans coach Ken Whisenhunt said when asked to update the rookie’s status.

“He is in a little better shape. He’s lost some weight, he’s made some plays out here in practice, and he made a play in the (Atlanta preseason) game. For him I just think it’s trying to expose him to more things and get him more comfortable.”

Fantasy Impact: 

If Green-Beckham picks up things quickly and proves he’s not as raw as his detractors say — one offensive coordinator said he was “completely lost” at the whiteboard in a pre-draft interview — he could certainly contribute early in the season. If he sees starter’s snaps, he should be fantasy relevant as a rookie, though he'll have to prove he's ready for the mental side of the game. Long-term, he has a chance to flourish if both he and Mariota are the real deal.
