NASHVILLE, Tenn. – With a season under his belt, right now, it's all about Dorial Green-Beckham. That's what Titans coach Mike Mularkey said on Monday when asked about the talented receiver, the team's second round pick in the 2015 NFL Draft.

"That's up to him,'' Mularkey said of Green-Beckham's potential as a receiver. "He's young. He's got to learn how to be a pro, and I think having guys in that room like Harry Douglas was very good for DGB. I think a lot of that will be up to him, how he prepares, starting now."
In his rookie season, Green-Beckham finished the year with more catches, yards and touchdowns than six of the seven receivers selected in front of him, with the lone exception being Oakland's Amari Cooper, the fourth overall pick of the draft.
At season's end, Green-Beckham said he was pleased with his season.

"I feel like overall I had a good rookie year,'' said Green-Beckham, who finished the year with 32 catches for 549 yards and four touchdowns. "I feel like I've become one of the top rookies to perform, and it's been a good experience. I have my rookie year under my belt, and now I know what to expect coming into Year Two."
Green-Beckham said he wants to play faster – and make even more of an impact in 2016. He knows he has to cut down on his mental mistakes.
"The year of playing is going to be huge for DGB,'' Mularkey said. "When he came in here, he had not played football in two years and was kind of thrown into the fire because of our receiver situation. You saw spurts of things he was capable of doing but not consistent at all. And that's something he's got to be more. He's got to be more consistent.
"At least he's got a year under his belt. He'll have an offseason if he's healthy. He can start already getting ready for this next year."
