Will Dorial Green-Beckham "pop" in 2016?

Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

Matt Bowen of ESPN has put out a list of 5 players that could "pop" (that means breakout, in case you were wondering) in their 2nd year (In$ider). Titans WR Dorial Green-Beckham is the first player Bowen mentioned. Here is part of what Bowen had to say about DGB:

Yes, he's still raw in terms of route-running ability, and that showed up on his rookie tape. But given Green-Beckham's freakish skill set and the fact that Mariota will continue to develop in Year 2, the wide receiver could be a true matchup weapon for the Titans in 2016. He has the size to post up defensive backs in the red zone and the long speed to challenge secondaries over the top. Throw him the ball.

Outside of Marcus Mariota there isn't a player that I am more excited about on this roster than DGB. He needs to put in a lot of work this offseason, but if he does, he can make a huge jump from year 1 to year 2. It is going to be fun to watch Mariota and DGB grow up together in this league.
