Everyone thinks it'll be another OL.

Taylor Lewan is taken, so it'll probably Zack Martin from ND.

Odell Beckham Jr?


I don't know about this. He's too much like Cruz and Beckum. Giants need an OL more.

Odell Beckham Jr.


GRADE 6.90

WR 6-0 187 LSU
Class: Sr

Round 1 Pick 12


Greg Nelson/SI

Analysis


Beckham became a starter his freshman year at LSU. He was a top receiver as well as the Tigers' top return man and shows NFL-tier skills in both. Beckham has adequate size, at about 5-foot-11, 198 pounds, but he also has very long arms, which allows him to play taller than his actual height. He is an excellent athlete with good speed, excellent change of direction, body control and leaping ability. I would not call Beckham a "burner", but he is fast enough. He has a quick burst that allows him to get out of cuts quickly. As a receiver, Beckham runs very good routes. He makes big plays. He does a great job finishing his routes and comes back to the ball very well. He has excellent hands and always catches the ball away from his body. He is effective as both a short and deep receiver, and his run-after-catch skills are excellent. He can be a team's No. 1 return man as soon as he enters the league. Overall, Beckham is very talented and he should be a premium pick. Regardless of where he gets drafted, he should play very early in his career. He has the talent to play either outside or in the slot and be productive at ether position.

Eli got himself another receiver.  I'm pumped.  Reported to be a play maker, a kid with great character.

Giants get a great kick returner with him as well, at least.

In 2013, with first-year offensive coordinator Cam Cameron running a more expansive passing game, Beckham caught 57 passes for 1,117 yards and eight touchdowns. At the scouting combine drills, I was specifically impressed with his ability among all the receivers in his group to grasp and show that he's a complete receiver and not just a guy who runs fast in a straight line. There shouldn't be any problem when he is asked to do the same for the Giants. This is a major win for a team in need of new weapons. - Doug Farrar

Draft Analysis:


"His mother was an All-American sprinter at LSU. His dad played football at LSU. He's got all the measurables. He's also one of best route runners in this draft. He's very advanced in terms of his route running." -- Mike Mayock


  • 5'11" Height
  • 32 3/4" Arm Length
  • 198LBS. Weight
  • 10" Hands



Overview


Father, Odell Sr., was a running back for the Tigers (1989-92) and mother, Heather Van Norman, was an LSU All-American and national champion in track (1991-93). Odell Jr. was an all-purpose standout as a Louisiana prep. As a true freshman in 2011 (wore jersey No. 33), played all 14 games (11 starts at "Z" receiver) and recorded 41 receptions for 475 yards (11.6-yard average) and two touchdowns. Started 12-of-13 games at the "Z" in '12 (team opened with extra tight end against Arkansas), tallying 43-713-2 (16.6). Was the Paul Hornung Award winner as the nation's most versatile player in '13 when he broke the LSU single-season all-purpose yards record (2,315) and snagged 59-1,152-8 (19.5) in 13 starts at "X" receiver. Also returned 68 career punts for 557 yards (8.2), including two scores, and 42 kickoffs for 1,044 yards (24.9).




Analysis




Strengths


Quick hands and feet to slip the jam. Fluid and fast. Good balance. Sinks his hips and changes gears to create separation. Quick hands to pluck off his frame. Terrific leaping ability -- climbs the ladder to snatch throws. Creates after the catch -- shows burst and shiftiness as a runner. Has playmaking ability. Confident and competitive. Has kickoff- and punt-return experience. Productive three-year starter.

Weaknesses


Adequate height. Lacks elite top-end speed to separate vertically. Could stand to polish the finer points of his route running. Inconsistent making contested grabs -- can be out-muscled in a crowd. Has some concentration drops. Can improve as a blocker. Was not an impactful punt returner. Was held in check by Florida and Alabama.

Draft Projection


Round 1

Bottom Line


Talented, competitive, productive, inconsistent college split end who projects as a big-play receiver in the pros. Offers versatility to toggle between "X," "Z" and slot given his ability to stretch the field and run after the catch. Brings added value as a kick returner.

The Giants signed Kellen Davis, who's a blocking TE.
