Odell Beckham Jr.

Wide Receiver

Height: 6'0" Weight: 187 lbs

LSU

Strengths: Beckham can be an outstanding receiver in the slot and is dangerous in the return game. He had a record setting 2,222 all-purpose yards in 2013 at LSU, and will provide any team with a dual threat on offense and special teams. He is excellent in the open field and can change direction quickly. His hands improved each year in college and in his third and final season, he sometimes made the difficult play look effortless.

Weaknesses: Some publications have him listed at only 5'11". Does not always demonstrate breakaway speed and could struggle at run blocking.

Bottom Line: If he runs a good (4.3 or low 4.4) 40-yard dash at the combine, he may not make it out of the 1st round. He has a good skill set for the NFL and is capable of making an instant impact.

Projected Round: 1-2

Team He Fits Best On: Eagles, Chiefs, Panthers, Patriots, Redskins
