Strong NFL comparisons continue to come in for wide receiver prospect Dorial Green-Beckham, who was recently said to be a blend of Julio Jones and Plaxico Burress, according to NFL Network draft analyst and former defensive back Charles Davis.
Green-Beckham, 21, drew a likeness to Jones due to his "size, physicality, explosiveness, (ability) to get to the football and create big plays downfield," Davis told NFL.com.
He also compared well to Burress because of his "size and ability to go over the top of defensive backs." Fitting the basketball mold of high-pointing receivers, Davis said Green-Beckham possesses "the ability to play above the rim."
RotoWorld's draft expert Josh Norris has Green-Beckham as the No. 14 overall prospect on his big board.
The former Missouri wideout checked in at 6-5 1/8" at the NFL Combine, with a 237-pound build.
He also ran a 4.49 40-yard dash, and posted a 33 1/2" vertical.
“He might be most talented receiver in the draft,” one NFL scout told CSNBayArea.com. “He’s big and has great speed. He’s Randy Moss. He can go up and get it. In the red zone, he’s dangerous. But with the domestic stuff at this time in the NFL, his off-the-field is troubling.”
The 2015 NFL Draft begins April 30 and will be held in Chicago for the first time.
