Beckham didn't spend long with Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops -- he was dismissed from Missouri after a pair of arrests -- but that isn't stopping the Sooners' leader from saying that the Titans got a clean prospect that is ready to move on.
Green-Beckham, by the way, did not play a down at Oklahoma.
"A lot of times, through different circumstances, young people learn from mistakes, and I felt like he did," Stoops told The Tennessean. "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."
The Titans, though, needed to make a splash fast. New quarterback, new play-making wideout. If nothing else, Green-Beckham may have been the most athletic option in the draft.
