20. Eagles: WR Dorial Green-Beckham, 6-6, 225, Missouri/Oklahoma.

Previously the pick was DE Shilique Calhoun of Michigan State but he has announced he’s returning to school. Any of the talk about the Eagles trading up to grab Marcus Mariota is garbage, unless Chip Kelly is willing to really roll the dice. Green-Beckham isn’t the safest pick because of off-the-field issues that forced him to transfer from Missouri (which kicked him off the team) to Oklahoma, but the Eagles will need a receiver and his size and hands make him intriguing.

Green-Beckham practiced all season with the Sooners, but lost his case to be declared immediately eligible by the NCAA. Having never played a down for OU, Green-Beckham declared for the draft following the Sooners’ 2014 season.

Green-Beckham (6-foot-6, 225 pounds), who is projected as a mid-to-late first-round pick, is listed as a Missouri player by NFL.com on its list of combine invitees. The NFL scouting combine is Feb. 17-23 in Indianapolis.

He caught 87 passes for 1,278 yards and 17 touchdowns in two seasons at Missouri, and set the national high school record with 6,353 career receiving yards at Hillcrest High School in Springfield, Mo.
