Odell Beckham Jr.
Odell Beckham Jr. is one of the most amazing players in the NFL and he is only entering his second season. The Giants 2014 first round draft pick has proven to be worth the investment. Beckham Jr. is now slated to be Manning’s number one option in the passing game. When you watch Beckham Jr. it looks as if he has been in the NFL for years but in reality he is a young player that schools even the most savvy veteran defensive backs.
Beckham Jr. runs amazingly precise routes. His great route running combined with his incredible physical talent make him virtually unstoppable. He creates separation and makes it look easy. But what he does isn’t easy. So few receivers can make NFL defensive backs (some of the best athletes in the world) look like the coyote trying to catch the roadrunner. A sophomore slump would almost be comforting as disappointing as it would be. It would mean he is human. I was starting to think Clark Kent changed his name to Odell Beckham Jr. to play in the NFL.
All jokes aside you really can’t say enough good things about the Giants star receiver. Beckham Jr. has a very cool personality that suits the big New York spotlight perfectly. He is an unbelievable player that gave Giants fans something to hold on to in a 6-10 season. Beckham Jr. missed the first four games of the 2014 season with a hamstring injury yet he put up big time numbers any way. 91 receptions for 1,305 yards and 12 touchdown passes is great production from any player but from a rookie it is unheard of.
