Bob Stoops: Green-Beckham Will Do Great Things for Titans


When the Titans take the field on Friday for rookie minicamp, all eyes will be on quarterback Marcus Mariota.

The second overall pick of the NFL draft is already the team’s biggest star, even before his first pro practice.

He won’t be the only rookie under the microscope, however. Wide receiver Dorial Green-Beckham, a second-round pick, will face intense scrutiny as well, only for an entirely different reason.

Bob Stoops, Green-Beckham’s coach last season at Oklahoma, predicts the Titans will like what they get from the talented receiver with a troubled past.

“A lot of times, through different circumstances, young people learn from mistakes, and I felt like he did,” Stoops said. “There’s a maturing process young people go through, and I believe Dorial has grown. Dorial has so much going for him. I think he is going to have a super career in the NFL. I hope it works out that way, and I believe it will. I really do.”
