Rookie WR Dorial Green-Beckham Passed First NFL Test

Posted Aug 16, 2015

Rookie wide receiver Dorial Green-Beckham passed his first NFL test in Tennessee's preseason opener.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Titans receiver Dorial Green-Beckham passed his first test on Friday night.

He’s ready for more.

“Just having that first game under the belt, and getting that experience,’’ he said. “Now it’s just a matter of getting out there and making plays every week.”

In the team’s preseason opener against the Falcons, Green-Beckham caught a 32-yard pass from quarterback Zach Mettenberger in the second quarter. It was his first catch in the NFL, and it came in his first game action since the end of the 2013 season, when he played at Missouri.

Green-Beckham didn’t play last season while at Oklahoma. He spent the first two weeks of training camp working off the rust, and getting more comfortable.

“It has been a long time since he’s been in a game, on the football field,’’ coach Ken Whisenhunt said of Green-Beckham. “There’s been a lot swirling around Dorial since he was picked, or even through the draft, and coming with us. Inconsistent would be one of the things you could describe him in the first part of camp, which you would expect for a young player, but it’s a situation where we tried to get that situation specifically for that.

“When we called that play at the start of that two-minute drive we thought that he would be matched up one-on-one and we wanted to see if he could make that play, and he did, did a nice job. It’s his mission, or his challenge to continue to progress. He’s got a long way to go, as far as being ready to be an NFL receiver, but one of the things you can’t question is his talent.”

The 32-yard catch was Green-Beckham only reception of the night

But he played in 19 snaps against the Falcons, and believes he took another step toward being ready for the season.

“I did a lot in the blocking game, I went in and blocked some guys, and let them know I was there,’’ he said. “I just have to keep working and getting better, but yeah, just playing and getting more comfortable does a lot for your confidence.”
