Titans head coach Ken Whisenhunt has been teasing us with a modest dose of Dorial Green-Beckham so far, but the team and fans are going to demand to see more of this kid as the season progresses.
The wide receivers on the roster are all pretty good, but this kid can take it to the next level that Justin Hunter, Kendall Wrigh and Harry Douglas can only dream about.
The second-round draft pick already has three catches for two touchdowns in limited snaps, and has shown the league that he has the speed to separate and is one of those rare receivers who knows the ball in the air is his and will do whatever it takes to go get it.
Whisenhunt told senior Titans Online editor, Jim Wyatt on Tuesday that he is pleased with DGB’s progress but doesn’t want to give him too much too fast.
We’ll continue to integrate DGB into the offense. I think the one thing you have to be careful about is overloading him, because right now he is on a good track. He is making progress and we are excited about seeing him make these plays.
“But if you think you can just put him in for 82 snaps, it is going to be a problem, so you just don’t want to see him take a step back.”
This kid is special. When he gets up to speed, Titans fans are going to have a receiver on par with a Randy Moss, Calvin Johnson and Brandon Marshall.
You remember that juggernaut thing?
