Dorial Green-Beckham: Should KC trade up on Day 2 if ex-Mizzou wideout is available?

5 of 5


Everything about Green-Beckham screams enigma; his skills, his flaws, his stock, his mindset—everything. And considering his local ties, the picture becomes that much murkier when Kansas City enters the equation.

Best-case scenario? Dorsey plucks the rookie, and Maclin, a fellow wideout with Missouri roots, takes him under his wing.

Worst-case scenario? Dorsey drafts the rookie, and the same missteps loop around for Lap 2.

Regardless, there’s no denying Green-Beckham’s upside. When the Greg Cosells of the world throw your name around with Calvin Johnson’s, it means something.

Green-Beckham’s stock likely rests somewhere between the mid- first to second-round range. I personally wouldn’t take a flyer at pick No. 18, but if he’s still on the board come Friday, I’d at least consider trading up (depending on the price). After all, if anyone’s equipped to handle volatile wideouts, it’s Andy Reid—a man whose lone Super Bowl trip coincided with the signing of Terrell Owens.

Ultimately, nobody knows what Green-Beckham’s future holds. He’s just as likely to soar into stardom as he is to fade into the background.

That being said, if there’s any reason to hold out hope, it lies in the fact that his motivation will be at an all-time high. Bleacher Report’s Lars Anderson notes:

"Dorial considered returning to Norman for his senior year, but he and Samantha are expecting their first child in early July—the same time training camps open across the NFL—and he wants to provide for his offspring. “I’m just so excited to get to a city, work my tail off and let people know that I’m not the person I’ve often been portrayed to be in the media,” Dorial said. “I just want a chance.”"
