One of thing for sure, Dorial Green-Beckham is a specimen. He stands 6’5″ and weighs about 240 pounds and he has a frame that can handle being even heavier. I was down on the field during the workouts and I was very impressed with him and that group of wide receivers, which ran 40’s, routes and caught the football at the NFL Combine before the 2015 NFL draft.
I’m concerned about reports from the Nashville, Tennessee media that Green-Beckham has problems when it comes to working hard and giving his full effort all the time. It reminds me of somebody who is currently wearing an Eagles jersey.
It sounds like he’s got some of same problems that current Eagles wide receiver Rueben Randle has. Right now, after watching many of the Eagles practices this summer, I don’t know if Randle wants to play in the NFL anymore. I’ve been totally disappointed with what I have seen of him at the Eagles workouts because he runs lazy routes. He doesn’t hustle throughout every route and makes a habit of giving up on routes before the play is over.
He doesn’t fight for the football the way you would expect somebody who is as big and as strong as he is would fight for it. He should be angered by the tiny contract he got and the fact that the Giants didn’t want him back. Randle should have a chip on his shoulder rather than a lackadaisical attitude.
Hopefully I won’t be saying the same thing when I get the chance to watch Green-Beckham work out, but I’m not guaranteeing it.
I think this was a good move because the Birds need help at the wide receiver position. The offensive lineman they traded, Dennis Kelly, has been here for plenty of years, but hasn’t helped very much. He’s not that good, so it’s not like they traded a valuable player for Green-Beckham. It’s definitely a low-risk trade.
