Dorial Green-Beckham is getting up to speed

DGB is getting up to speed

Dorial Green-Beckham spent his first few college practices running in slow motion. As he jogged to the line of scrimmage, coaches and teammates sometimes had to tell him where to line up and what route to run.

He has to think sometimes about running fast," Missouri receivers coach Andy Hill said after a week of practices.

That's not unusual for freshmen in Missouri's offense. But Green-Beckham isn't a usual freshman and didn't arrive with normal expectations. After two weeks, his rapid progress was obvious to everyone watching.
Grab the rest.

DGB may be the best offensive football player in the SEC this season. His kind of talent is extremely rare and Pinkel's offense is geared for his success. DGB is a major reason why many pundits think that Mizzou will make an early splash in the SEC East and could be legitimate division contenders.
