Oklahoma WR Dorial Green-Beckham, one of the most dynamic and controversial college football players in the nation, will reportedly enter the NFL in 2015.
Oklahoma head coach Bob Stoops said on Tuesday at his end of the year press conference that the former Missouri star receiver will be entering the 2015 NFL Draft after spending just over a semester at the University of Oklahoma.
The former No. 1 overall recruit coming out of high school, Green-Beckham flashed plenty of potential during his time with the Missouri Tigers, recording 59 receptions for 883 yards and 12 TDs in 2013, but didn’t have the incredible playmaking season of a player like Jaelen Strong or Amari Cooper.
In addition, a series of off the field incidents, including a suspension for violation of team rules and being dismissed by Missouri coach Gary Pinkel after he allegedly pushed a woman down the stairs, led to his exit from Missouri.
At 6-foot-6 and with a 40-yard dash time that makes him one of the faster players in this year’s draft class, Green-Beckham still presents an interesting prospect for a number of wide receiver-needy NFL clubs who can look past beyond his past discretions.
Among the teams that could use a player like Green-Beckham are the New York Jets, New England Patriots, Miami Dolphins, Oakland Raiders, Tennessee Titans, Minnesota Vikings, Seattle Seahawks, San Francisco 49ers and St. Louis Rams.
