Titans receiver Dorial Green-Beckham hasn’t played in a college football game since the final game of the 2013 season, a bowl game against Oklahoma State on January 3, 2014 while he was at Missouri. Green-Beckham sat out all of last season at Oklahoma. After watching him in practices over the last few weeks, his coaches are anxious to see how he’ll do in a game. Green-Beckham made a nice grab in practice on Wednesday, and he’s had some positive moments in camp. He’s also had some drops, but he’s settled down and been more consistent of late. His first big test will come in the Georgia Dome.
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.
