Biography

 
PRO: The Titans selected Dorial Green-Beckham in the second round (40th overall) of the 2015 NFL Draft.  The 6-foot-5-inch, 237-pounder is an athletically gifted receiver with a huge frame.  He has rare speed for his size and shows excellent concentration when the ball is in the air. His body control and athleticism shine when he’s tracking the ball or making a play in the end zone.  

CAREER HIGHLIGHTS:
•     As a rookie in 2015 Green-Beckham finished the season with 32 receptions for 549 yards and a team-best average of 17.2 yards per reception, which also ranked sixth in the NFL (first among rookies).  In the “Titans era” (1999-present), Green-Beckham’s 17.2-yard average ranked fourth among all players, trailing Justin Gage’s 2008 season (19.1-yard average), Kenny Britt’s 2010 season (18.5) and Justin McCareins’ 2003 campaign (17.3).
•     Green-Beckham’s 93.8 percent rate of first downs on receptions (30 of 32) in 2015 ranked first in the NFL (minimum 32 receptions). From 1991 through 2015, only four NFL players had a better percentage in a season than Green-Beckham.
•     Among members of the 2015 draft class, Green-Beckham ranked fifth in total receiving yards.  He had more receptions, yards and touchdowns than six of the seven wide receivers selected in front of him in the draft, with the lone exception being the fourth overall pick, Oakland’s Amari Cooper (72 receptions for 1,070 yards).
•     As a sophomore at Missouri, he registered 12 receiving touchdowns, while notching 59 catches for 883 yards.

TITANS TIDBITS:  
•     Green-Beckham never knew his biological father and lived in several foster homes before John Beckham, his high school coach, and his wife Tracy officially adopted him on Dec. 30, 2009.  The Beckhams first brought Green and his younger brother Darnell into their home in 2006.
•     Green-Beckham’s brother, Darnell, received treatment for acute lymphoblastic leukemia but is in remission. Darnell was a three-star receiver in high school and signed a letter of intent to play for Missouri, but decided to pursue a career in modeling instead.
•     Green-Beckham’s brother, Darnell, wore 10 and Dorial wore 5 in high school. When Darnell got cancer, Dorial chose 15 when he arrived at Missouri to show Darnell the two were together in everything.
•     Green-Beckham was a two-time USA Today High School All-American (2010 and 2011) at Hillcrest High School in Springfield, Mo.  He posted a national prep record of 6,353 receiving yards and 75 receiving touchdowns and was the first wide receiver to be named USA Today Offensive Player of the Year since Andre Hastings in 1989. Recruiting analyst Tom Lemming called Green-Beckham the best wide receiver prospect since Randy Moss.
•    Off the football field, one of Green-Beckham’s favorite activities is playing Topgolf.
