Dorial Green-Beckham, Kansas City Chiefs will meet at the NFL Combine

Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

Former Mizzou WR Dorial Green-Beckham has been a topic of conversation ever since ESPN's Mel Kiper's 2015 NFL mock draft sent DGB to the Kansas City Chiefs. The draft is obviously a ways away but we do have a little bit of news on DGB and the Chiefs. GM John Dorsey confirmed that the Chiefs plan to meet with DGB while in Indy.

"Physically we think he has all the gifts in the world," Dorsey said Thursday of DGB. "We've all admired him from the state of Missouri ... Now what people want to do is get a feel for him as a person and see where he is at this stage. That's what we're doing. We'll be meeting him in the next couple of days and I look forward to it."

Clearly, the physical traits are there. He certainly looks the part of one of the NFL's next great receivers. If there were no other question marks, we'd be talking about DGB as a high first round pick. But of course there are more questions ... a few incidents at Missouri eventually led him to having to leave the school. He transferred to Oklahoma where he did not play last year as he sat out per NCAA rules.

The thing with DGB, at least for me, is that the Chiefs really need to nail their first round pick this year. If they were in a different situation, I would be all about taking the risk on DGB. But with this team? It's a tough decision. His physical skills will make me always have some level of interest but the Chiefs need to do some due diligence here over the next couple of months and get a better feel for him.
