Chiefs meeting again with Dorial Green-Beckham

Journey To The Draft: Dorial Green-Beckham

Mel Kiper Jr. breaks down some of the strengths and weaknesses of Missouri wide receiver Dorial Green-Beckham.

A lot of times I don’t find news about any NFL team visiting with any particular player to be that interesting. Each team meets with hundreds of players during the NFL draft process and has a ton of scouts and coaches whose job it is this time of year to do that sort of thing. With the exception of the top of the draft, the odds of any one of these players getting selected by any particular team are not good.

But I am interested that former Missouri wide receiver Dorial Green-Beckham is visiting with the Kansas City Chiefs, as first reported by the NFL Network.

This wouldn’t be the first time the Chiefs have met with Green-Beckham. They also met with him in February at the scouting combine in Indianapolis, though those interviews tend to be abbreviated.

The Chiefs are obviously intrigued. There’s a lot they need to know about him. He was thrown off the team at Missouri following an arrest for marijuana possession and an incident in which he allegedly forced his way into an apartment and pushed a Missouri student down some stairs.

In a football sense, he’s also a risk. Green-Beckham played just two seasons at Missouri, where though his numbers were good (87 catches for 1,278 yards and 17 touchdowns), at times he was underwhelming.

He’s talented but still a risky pick. The Chiefs need to know what they would be getting with Green-Beckham. Good for them that their doing their homework.
