Report: Firing of Jay Norvell led to Dorial Green-Beckham declaring for the draft

1408757720000-AP-Oklahoma-FootballOklahoma fans can’t help but think what it would be like to see WR Dorial Green-Beckham on the field. After getting kicked off the team at Missouri, Green-Beckham transferred to Oklahoma and was expected to be a key contributor for the 2015 season. But things changed after head coach Bob Stoops decided to make changes after a lackluster year. According to Albert Breer of the NFL Network, the firing of offensive coordinator Jay Norvell led to Green-Beckham declaring for the NFL Draft.


By all accounts, that didn’t happen. According to the information gathered by a number of NFL evaluators, Green-Beckham walked the straight and narrow as, in essence, a very well-known practice-squader last fall. He was there for early-morning workouts, quickly established himself as a star on the practice field and planned to stay for the 2015 season. Those plans changed after the firing of co-offensive coordinator Jay Norvell, with whom Green-Beckham had built a strong relationship, but the gifted prospect was able to leave OU under much better circumstances than he did Mizzou.


Green-Beckham has 1st round talent, but he has to prove that he can make the right decisions off the field.
