Strengths:

  • Great size
  • Rare catch-radius
  • Good hands
  • Good body control
  • Fast for size

Analysis: DGB has ideal size, weight, and speed for the wide receiver position. If he was not a red flag to NFL teams due to his off-the-field issues, he could challenge the trio of Cooper, Parker, and White as the top wide receiver in the draft. His game reminds me of AJ Green, with deceptive speed that can beat a defense, along with the unique ability to high point the ball while leaping over defenders. He has a rare catch-radius with great hand-eye coordination.

Need to improve:

  • Off-field issues
  • Route running
  • Needs to add strength
  • Effort?
  • Missed entire 2014 season

Analysis: Green-Beckham is a physical specimen that has exceled on the football field due to natural ability, his work-ethic has been questioned. Route running is sloppy at times, with rounded cuts instead of sharp breaks. There were reports that DGB had outstanding interviews with NFL teams throughout the draft process, and the off-the-field issues may not hurt his draft stock as much. This is a crucial part of the next few months for Dorial, if he can show he has matured, an NFL team will surely think about using a first round pick on him.

Round prediction: Late 1st round

NFL Comparison: AJ Green
