It still hurts for me that we didnt have a chance or we dont have plan to draft DGB, I thought he's a troubled kid with stupid decision. However, I read one article of ESPN and begin to even believe the Titans got a huge steal in this draft. This kid seems to be on the right way of collecting things together.
With no outlet for his game-day fire, Green-Beckham saved his intensity for practices and the 5:30 a.m. workouts usually reserved for freshmen and scout teamers. He even managed to turn Jerry Schmidt, the Sooners' strength coach since 1999 and a notorious grump, from a skeptic to a believer.
"Going into it, I thought it was going to be a problem," Schmidt said. "But he didn't miss a day and he led all of our younger guys and showed them how to work. Here's a guy who's supposed to be playing in SEC at a high level, and now he's not playing on Saturday, and still working like that. You've got to give him some credit for that."
Green-Beckham went on to be named scout team player of the week six times, turning practices into his own personal challenge against the No. 1 defense.
"I told them, practice is my game," he says. "This is my Saturday."
