2015 NFL Draft results: Titans pick Dorial Green-Beckham, WR, Oklahoma

Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

The best way to help a young quarterback be successful is to give him weapons.  The Titans have done just that by adding Dorial-Green Beckham.  He comes with a ton of off the field questions, and he hasn't played football in a year, but he has a ton of upside.

I would have been good with this pick at 33.  I love it at 40.  This guy has the talent to develop into a top-5 wide receiver in the league.  He has a chance to be their #1 receiver when the season starts, and a receiving corps that looked shaky just a couple of weeks ago looks pretty good now.  They now have Kendall Wright, Harry Douglas, Justin Hunter, Hakeem Nicks and DGB.  There is a lot of potential there.

Stay tuned for an approval poll on this pick soon.  I am sure there are a lot of people that have a lot of strong opinions about it.

Here are some thoughts from PFF:

What He Brings: We’re somewhat in the dark here as we only graded the 2014 season. But we did go back and watch his 2013 tape and see a receiver who wins more with his physicality than his speed and explosiveness in that regard. Very strong at the catch point and potentially a headache off the field.

Where He Fits: Well the team has Kendall Wright and brought in Harry Douglas and Hakeem Nicks, so really DGB can be whatever he wants as quickly as he wants in Tennessee. Marcus Mariota is going to need bodies to throw to.
