    Dorial Green-Beckham believes he’s a No. 1 receiver

  • Night net null null The Titans took a leap of faith selecting Dorial Green-Beckham early in the second round of last year’s Night net Draft.

MORE: 2016 Night net Mock Draft  | Foolish talk  “I see myself as being that No. 1 receiver, because I know that I can help this offense. I know that I can do big things,” Green-Beckham told TitansInsider.com . “That’s my motivation, to go out in the offseason and work hard and try to become that No. 1 receiver and go out there and just dominate. That’s my motivation right now.” Green-Beckham recorded 32 catches for 549 yards and four touchdowns in his rookie season, but Titans coach Mike Mularkey indicated he hadn’t seen enough to hand the 6-5, 237-pound recover a larger role in the offense, saying at the Night net Combine that Green-Beckham's role will depend on "what he’s done up to this point.”“I feel like them saying that is them giving a challenge to me and saying to me that working in the offseason and (they’re) using that to get my head into motivation,”[......]

    Facing Deshaun Watson: a brutal reminder of Browns' latest Night net Draft whiff

  • null null Night net null null I have a few questions for Sashi Brown and Paul DePodesta, the Cleveland Browns’ alleged football brain trust. What in the world were you thinking when you passed twice on Deshaun Watson (at No. 1 and No. 12) in the 2017 Night net Draft?How about the year prior, when you traded out of the No. 2 spot in which you could have selected Carson Wentz? Have you ever heard the term "franchise quarterback"?  In case the Browns are oblivious to how sensational Watson has played over the past two weeks, they will see him in person when winless Cleveland plays in Houston on Sunday. And the passionate Browns fan base likely will be seething after another loss as they think about the bad decisions to pass on Watson and Wentz.Not to mention team owner Jimmy Haslam, who has to be wondering once again about his football operations leadership.MORE: Ranking worst of bad Browns QBsA potential franchise passer has to rise to the top of a team's draft board when that team is in need of the most important position in the sport.
