Dorial Green-Beckham entering 2015 NFL Draft

If he had no off-field concerns, Dorial Green-Beckham would easily be one of the two or three best receiver prospects in the 2015 NFL draft.

One of the most promising, yet troubled wide-receiver prospects is declaring for the 2015 NFL draft.

Dorial Green-Beckham is forgoing his remaining college eligibility with the Oklahoma Sooners, and will declare for the draft, head coach Bob Stoops announced Tuesday. Green-Beckham, a 6-foot-6, 225 pounds freak, was dismissed from Missouri in the spring for disciplinary reasons, and later transferred to Oklahoma.

He appealed to the NCAA to have the transfer rule waived to allow him to play this fall, but that was denied. Had DBG declined to enter next year's draft, he'd play as a fourth-year junior for the Sooners in 2015.

Depending on which mock drafts you look at, some have had DGB listed as a high first-round pick, but once an offseason of digging into his background takes place, there's no telling where he'll end up going in the draft.

With no off-field concerns, he's easily one of the two or three best receiver prospects in this year's draft. While at Missouri in 2013, Green-Beckham had 59 catches for 883 yards and 12 touchdowns. He averaged 15 yards per catch and was named to the AP All-SEC second-team. In his freshman year, he had 28 catches for 395 yards and five touchdowns.

Coming out of high school, Green-Beckham was ranked as Rivals.com's No. 1 recruit from the Class of 2012. The 21-year-old is a native of Springfield, Missouri.
