While most of 2015 draft class conversation has revolved around Tampa Bay Buccaneers Jameis Winston, St. Louis Rams Todd Gurley and Tennessee quarterback Marcus Mariota, it’s under-the-radar Titans wide receiver Dorial Green-Beckham who is drawing comparisons to All-Pro wideout Calvin Johnson.

From’s Kevin Patra:

“DGB’s size is nearly identical to that of Calvin Johnson. The athletically gifted rookie will be a matchup nightmare for defenses if he can master the route running, something he’s struggled with thus far. If he can stay on the field, he should be a large part of the Titans’ red zone attack this season.”

If Green-Beckham can develop into anything near Johnson, he and Mariota could have a chance to form one of the next great duos.
