Dez Bryant has become a household name, even fans of the New York Giants must admit the Dallas Cowboys have one heck of a wide receiver. The Giants have a great receiver of their own too, and he is off to a faster start in his career than Bryant was.
Bryant only had 561 yards in his rookie season, though to be fair he only played in 12 games.

In Bryant’s second season, he had 928 yards and 9 touchdowns. Odell Beckham also played only 12 games in his rookie season, a weird coincidence. Beckham had 91 receptions and 1305 yards with 12 touchdowns, again it was his rookie season.
Beckham finished the 2014 regular season ranked 10th in receiving yards. He ranked only two spots lower than Bryant, who just finished his 5th season. Not only did Beckham have a better rookie season but his rookie season was on par with Bryant’s 5th season. Think about that. Bryant is one of the most incredible receivers in the league, and right away Beckham is putting up similar production.

Its not fair to say who is better or worse. The two superstars are different players. Byant has a bigger frame and a more power centric game as a receiver. Beckham has great speed, runs perfect routes and is almost impossible to catch with the football.
What is fair to say is that Beckham is off to a better start than Bryant was. It is also fair to say that Beckham is only going to get better with experience. The Giants’ star has unrivaled potential.
