05/11/2014 - Besides being chosen in the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft, New Giants receiver Odell Beckham, Jr. has a few other things he can look forward to once he reports to begin work with his new team. For one, he'll be joining fellow receiver Rueben Randle, who played with Beckham for a bit while the two were at LSU. "My big brother," Beckham said of Randle. "He kind of taught me the ropes when I came into LSU and now I'm back with him again. It's pretty incredible."

Beckham will also have an opportunity to catch passes from quarterback Eli Manning, whose jersey he used to regularly admire during his time at Isidore Newman High School in New Orleans. "I remember walking through the school and seeing his jersey, along with Peyton's," Beckham said of Isidore Newman's most famous NFL alumni thus far. "Every single day it was just kind of motivation to me. I threw with them a couple times, so I know exactly what he has in store and what he has to offer. I'm really looking forward to getting back together with him." - The Sports Xchange

05/11/2014 - Giants add weapon to passing game...After placing a heavy emphasis during free agency on upgrading the defensive side of the ball, the New York Giants finally turned their attention to their "broken" offense in the first round of the NFL Draft. With the 12th overall pick, the Giant selected wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. out of LSU, an outside possession receiver. "We talk about the quarterback (Eli Manning) needing some help," said Giants general manager Jerry Reese. "He needs some weapons. (Beckham) is a weapon on the outside."

Interestingly, Beckham, who becomes the first receiver to be drafted in the first round by the Giants since 2009 when they took Hakeem Nicks out of North Carolina, is listed at 5-foot-11, 198 pounds, a size that usually isn't typical for the Giants, who tend to look for guys who are taller than 6-foot to play on the outside. Reese, however, didn't seem bothered by Beckham's lack of height and pointed to the defending Super Bowl champion Seahawks' receivers as a model that worked. "Look at the Super Bowl -how tall were those receivers?" Reese said of Doug Baldwin and Golden Tate, both of whom are listed at 5-foot-10. "Tall receivers don't always correlate to Super Bowl wins," Reese added. "Would you like to have a 6-foot-5 guy to run routes? Sure, but I don't think you have to have that to win the Super Bowl. The Seahawks showed that."

Beckham, who is also a return specialist, capped his three-year career for the Tigers with 143 receptions for 2,340 yards and 12 touchdowns. Beckham, whom Reese described as being "almost pro ready," will line up as an outside receiver for the Giants. Victor Cruz is projected to remain as the slot receiver and Rueben Randle and Mario Manningham will battle for the third receiver spot. - The Sports Xchange

05/11/2014 - A closer look at the Giants' picks: Round 1/12 -- Odell Beckham Jr., WR, 5-11, 198, Louisiana State...Beckham, Jr. is an explosive playmaker who should help draw some of the double-team coverage away from Victor Cruz. Beckham also has produced as a return specialist, but he'll probably slide right into Hakeem Nicks' old spot on the outside. - The Sports Xchange

05/08/2014 - 2014 DRAFT SCOUT FINAL TOP 100: 14/3. *Odell Beckham Jr., WR, LSU, 5-11, 198, 4.38, 1...Great genetics are obvious for Beckham, whose father was a star running back at LSU and mother, the former Heather Van Norman, was a six-time All-American Track and national champion sprinter for the for the Lady Tigers. Little wonder that Beckham is smooth afoot and an explosive return man. Although game scouts thought he lacked elite speed, his best time in 40 yards at combine was 4.40, which is plenty fast. Less than average in height, but has vertical jump of 38.5 inches. Last season he caught 59 passes for 1,152 yards and eight touchdowns and returned punts. Frankly: Beckham should step in and star quickly. Rare wide receiver combination of outstanding natural ability and great attitude, natural elusiveness and still willing to get physical. - Frank Cooney, NFLDraftScout.com

05/06/2014 - Dane Brugler's 2014 NFL Draft Final Top-50: 28. Odell Beckham WR, LSU (5-11, 198, 4.43, JR)...An impact return man on special teams, Beckham is a speedy, smooth athlete who has improved his hands and route running since he arrived in Baton Rouge. He shows very good shake-and-burst out of his cuts with a large catching radius to elevate and attack the ball. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com

04/29/2014 - 2014 NFL Draft Wide Receiver: *Odell Beckham Jr., LSU, 5-11, 198, 4.43...Great genetics are obvious for Beckham, whose father was a star running back at LSU and mother, the former Heather Van Norman, was a six-time All-American Track and national champion sprinter for the for the Lady Tigers.

04/09/2014 - 2014 Pro Days: LSU's Zach Mettenberger rusty but recovering...Fellow pass-catcher, Odell Beckham, Jr. was the exact opposite, electing not to perform during measureable drills after a impressive Combine session but starring during the positional workout as both a receiver and returner. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com

04/09/2014 - Neither coach Jim Harbaugh nor general manager Trent Baalke was in attendance Wednesday at the LSU pro day, but a 49ers scout met with the Tigers' top prospect. Wide receiver Odell Beckham, a potential first-round draft pick, is a possibility for the 49ers with the No. 30 overall pick - if he lasts that long. Beckham (5 foot 11 ??) ran a time of 4.43 seconds in the 40-yard dash at the NFL Scouting Combine. He reportedly had a strong showing at his pro day, too. Afterward, Beckham appeared as a guest on SiriusXM NFL Radio and was asked which teams were showing interest in him.

"To be honest with you, I think everybody was here," Beckham said. "I saw all different colors. I saw the whole rainbow today. I spent time with the 49ers. I had dinner with the Steelers last night. I'm going to Buffalo tomorrow, actually. So pretty much everybody was here and today was a great day." Regional scout Bob Morris represented the 49ers at LSU's pro day. Last season, Beckham caught 57 passes for 1,117 yards (19.6 average) and eight touchdowns. He also averaged 10.1 yards on 14 punt returns and 26.9 yards on 30 kickoff returns. - Comcast SportsNet Bay Area

02/20/2014 - 2014 NFL Draft Scout Pre-Combine Top 64 Prospects: 27. *Odell Beckham Jr., WR, LSU, 5-11, 193, 4.49, 1-2...Great genetics are obvious for Beckham, whose father was a running back at LSU and mother, the former Heather Van Norman, was a six-time All-American Track and national champion sprinter for the Lady Tigers. Little wonder that Beckham is smooth afoot and an explosive return man. However he lacks truly elite speed and is less than average in height. Last season he caught 59 passes for 1,152 yards and eight touchdowns and returned punts. - Frank Cooney, The Sports Xchange

01/19/2014 - A record 98 underclassmen, including Johnny Manziel and Jadeveon Clowney, have made themselves eligible for the NFL draft in May. The league released the list of early entrants Sunday and said the number has risen six straight seasons. The deadline for underclassmen to apply was Jan. 15. Last year, 73 underclassmen entered the draft. The year before it was 65 and in 2011 it was 56. Also, four players who recently graduated and still have eligibility left are joining the draft class but aren't included in the number. Most notable among those is Louisville quarterback Teddy Bridgewater. Southern California defensive back Dion Bailey, Arizona State linebacker Carl Bradford and Alabama linebacker Adrian Hubbard are also juniors who have informed the league they have graduated.

Among the early entrants expected to be selected near the top of the draft are Manziel, the Texas A&M quarterback, Clowney, the defensive end from South Carolina, and Clemson receiver Sammy Watkins. The draft is May 8-10 in New York. LSU for the second straight season had the most players of any school to leave early. The Tigers had seven early entrants this season, including wide receivers Jarvis Landry and Odell Beckham Jr., after 11 LSU players left early last year. - AP Sports

12/13/2013 - 2013 PAUL HORNUNG AWARD WINNER: After shattering an LSU single-season record for all-purpose yards, junior wide receiver/return specialist Odell Beckham Jr. won the fourth annual Paul Hornung Award as major college football's most versatile player, the Louisville Sports Commission announced on Friday morning. Beckham Jr. captured the trophy named in honor of the legendary Paul Hornung, the 1956 Heisman Trophy winner at Notre Dame and NFL MVP for the Green Bay Packers. A panel of 16 journalists, former NFL stars and a fan vote were tabulated. Beckham Jr. bested four other exceptional players who were finalists: Arizona State's Marion Grice, Western Kentucky's Antonio Andrews, Texas A&M's Johnny Manziel and UCLA's Myles Jack.

"It's just an honor and a blessing to even be mentioned with these guys who are up for the Hornung Award," said Beckham Jr. "I am proud to accept the award and thank the committee for recognizing me and the fans for voting. "It means a lot to me personally because I have worked extremely hard well before this season started. I had great teammates help me along the way, especially on kickoff and punt returns. None of the opportunities to display my versatility would be possible if it weren't for my teammates and coaches putting me in a position to succeed."

Beckham Jr. turned in arguably the most explosive season in LSU football history, racking up 2,222 all-purpose yards to break Domanick Davis' school record of 2,120 yards set in 2002. Beckham Jr. caught 57 passes for 1,117 yards and eight touchdowns. He also recorded the second-highest kick return yardage total in LSU history with 806 yards on 30 returns. Beckham Jr. added 14 punt returns for 141 yards. - LSU football

12/11/2013 - 2013 ALL-SEC FIRST TEAM (COACHES): RS - Odell Beckham, Jr., LSU...Beckham Jr. leads the SEC and ranks second nationally in all-purpose yards, averaging 185.2 yards per game. He set the LSU single-season record with 2,222 all-purpose yards and ranks third in SEC single-season history. The New Orleans native is 174 yards away from tying the SEC single-season all-purpose record of 2,396 held by Kentucky's Randall Cobb in 2010. - LSU football

11/11/2013 - 2014 NFL Draft: Alabama's McCarron outduels LSU's Mettenberger...McCarron is often labeled as a game-manager because of his willingness to take check down options. At times, Mettenberger would have been better served taking a page from his foe's strategy as his questionable situational awareness led to problems for the Tigers. This was nowhere more obvious than when Mettenberger attempted a rather desperate wheel route into the end zone to Landry on 4th down with 9:10 remaining in the fourth quarter. Mettenberger appeared to make a pre-determined throw, ignoring other receivers breaking open who could have at least earned the Tigers another set of downs. Quarterbacks always get the limelight but LSU's wideouts Landry and Odell Beckham each flashed the traits to earn high draft consideration, themselves.

Beckham entered the game leading the SEC with an average of 207.3 all-purpose yards per contest. Though he only caught three passes for 42 yards against the Tide Saturday night, a dazzling 82-yard kick return in the fourth quarter showcased the junior's remarkable vision, agility and acceleration. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com

10/27/2013 - Odell Beckham Jr. caught six passes for 204 yards, including scoring receptions of 37 and 63 yards, to power No. 13 LSU to a 48-16 rout of pesky but overmatched Furman Saturday night at Tiger Stadium. Jeremy Hill and Terrence Magee combined for 251 yards rushing and scored two touchdowns each for the Tigers. With a road game against No. 1 Alabama looming on Nov. 9, LSU (7-2) looked sluggish early against Furman, a second-tier Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) team, leading only 20-16 at half.

But the Tigers got their running game rolling and scored 28 unanswered points in the second half. LSU finished with a season-high 672 yards in total offense. Hill piled up 143 yards on 14 carries, including touchdown runs of 55 and 4 yards in the first quarter, and Magee added 108 yards on seven carries, scoring on a 1-yard burst to open the second half and adding a 39-yard burst to open the fourth quarter. Beckham's big night gave him 1,009 yards and eight TDs on 48 catches this season. With a bye week coming up, LSU now has two weeks to prepare for undefeated Alabama. - The Sports Xchange

10/26/2013 - Odell Beckham Jr. caught six passes for 204 yards and two scores, Terrance Magee added two second-half touchdowns, and No. 13 LSU turned a tenuous halftime lead into a 48-16 romp over Furman on Saturday night. Jeremy Hill rushed for 143 yards and two touchdowns for LSU (7-2), which led 20-16 at halftime before outscoring the Paladins (3-5) 28-0 in the second half.

Hill's first touchdown went for 55 yards. Beckham's TDs went for 63 and 37 yards, and Magee broke off a 39-yard run for his second score. LSU quarterback Zach Mettenberger passed for 328 yards and three scores, but threw two interceptions, the first of which was returned 76 yards by Reggie Thomas to give Furman a 7-0 lead. Furman's Ray Early kicked three field goals. - AP Sports

09/12/2013 - Scouting the LSU special teams: Odell Beckham Jr. was outstanding in the return game, going 100 yards for a touchdown on a 59-yard field goal attempt that fell short, 60 yards on a punt return to set up a touchdown and 21 yards on his lone kickoff return. Jamie Keehn (42.8) was solid on balance, but inconsistent punting for the second consecutive game. The coverage units allowed virtually nothing. - The Sports Xchange

09/12/2013 - PLAYERS TO WATCH: WR Odell Beckham Jr. had 331 all-purpose yards against UAB, the third most in LSU history. He was named SEC special teams player of the week after returning a missed field goal 100 official yards (it was closer to 109 in actuality) for a touchdown and returned a punt 60 yards to set up another score. Beckham has three touchdown receptions and is averaging 25 yards per reception and he has got three rushes in the first two games. - The Sports Xchange

09/09/2013 - SEPT 9/WEEK 2 CBSSPORTS.COM NATIONAL SPECIALIST OF THE WEEK: LSU WR/RS Odell Beckham...LSU wide receiver Odell Beckham is making a name for himself this year as one of the SEC's best wide receivers, but his special teams play is what stood out in LSU's 56-17 win against UAB in the Tigers' home opener. Beckham's 61-yard punt return in the first quarter set up a Kenny Hilliard touchdown, then he waited in the end zone as UAB kicker Ty Long attempted a 59-yard field goal in the second half.

Long's attempt fell short, and Beckham returned the missed field goal 109 yards for a touchdown. Beckham also pulled in five catches for 136 yards and three touchdowns in the win, becoming the first LSU player to record back-to-back-100-yard receiving games since Dwayne Bowe did it in 2006. - CBSSports.com

09/09/2013 - WEEK 2 SEC SPECIAL TEAMS PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Odell Beckham Jr., KR/PR/WR, LSU...Racked up 331 all-purpose yards - the third-highest total in school history and tied for eighth in SEC history - in LSU's win over UAB...Became the first player in LSU history to return a missed field goal for a TD as he returned a 59-yard UAB attempt 109 yards (statistically 100 yards) for a touchdown in the third quarter...It tied for the longest scoring play in LSU history ... Finished contest with a total of 4 TDs (3 receiving, 1 return)...Rushed one time for 15 yards, caught 5 passes for 136 yards, returned 3 punts for 59 yards, including a 60-yarder that setup a TD, returned one kickoff 21 yards and returned the missed field goal 100 yards for his 331 all-purpose yards. - SEC football

09/09/2013 - SEPT 9 COLLEGE FOOTBALL PERFORMANCE AWARDS CO-ALL-PURPOSE PERFORMER OF THE WEEK: Odell Beckham (LSU)...After his historic 100-yard missed field goal return in Tiger Stadium, Odell Beckham Jr. was named the Southeastern Conference Special Teams Player of the Week, it was announced on Monday morning.

With UAB attempting a would-be stadium record 59-yard field goal late in the third quarter, Beckham setup for a return in the south endzone. He fielded the kick eight yards into the endzone and returned along the left sideline for a touchdown. It was the first such return in LSU football history and capped a 331-yard all-purpose night for the wide receiver. Honorable Mention: David Fluellen (Toledo), Trey Watts (Tulsa), Khalfani Muhammad (California), Mike Davis (South Carolina), Tramaine Thompson (Kansas State) - LSU football

09/07/2013 - Zach Mettenberger passed for an LSU single-game record five touchdowns, receiver Odell Beckham Jr. scored one of his four touchdowns on a 100-yard field goal return, and the ninth-ranked Tigers overwhelmed UAB 56-17 on Saturday night. LSU coach Les Miles also decided to end running back Jeremy Hill's benching in the second quarter of the second game of the season. Hill, who was arrested last spring for landing a punch outside a bar, scored on a 3-yard run on his first carry.

Mettenberger finished 16 of 19 for 282 yards and was not intercepted. Beckham's 136 yards and three TDs receiving were both career highs. He led LSU (2-0) with 331 all-purpose yards. Darren Reaves and Jamarcus Nelson each had touchdowns in the first half for UAB (0-2). - AP Sports

09/01/2013 - Terrence Magee ran for two touchdowns after halftime, Zach Mettenberger threw for 251 yards with a key late score and 12th-ranked LSU held on for a 37-27 victory over No. 20 TCU late Saturday night. Odell Beckham's 75-yard kickoff return set up a 20-yard TD pass from Mettenberger to Jarvis Landry with 6 minutes left.

All in all, despite a crucial fumble and a three-and-out in the fourth quarter that kept the game uncomfortably close, the Tigers' first game with new offensive coordinator Cam Cameron calling the plays provided a promising start to the season. And that replenished defense after losing a team-record eight players to the NFL draft came up with some key plays. B.J. Catalon returned a kickoff 100 yards for a touchdown and scored on a 26-yard run for TCU, the two-time BCS buster now in its second Big 12 season. - AP Sports

08/31/2013 - Scouting the LSU special teams: Even though power-legged Australian Brad Wing left for the NFL with two years of eligibility remaining, the Tigers are set with another strong-legged Aussie in Jamie Keehn, who averaged more than 44 yards when he filled in for Wing in the first and last games of last season. Redshirt freshman Colby Delahoussaye is unproven on placements, but junior James Hairston is handling kickoffs for the third consecutive season. Odell Beckham Jr. is dangerous as a punt and kick returner and LSU as always has an abundance of talented youth on coverage units. - The Sports Xchange

08/26/2013 - 2013 PRESEASON ALL-SEC SECOND TEAM (COACHES): AP - Odell Beckham Jr., LSU,...Averages 12.9 yards every time he touches the football as he's accounted for 1,784 all-purpose yards on 138 attempts in his LSU career. - LSU football

08/22/2013 - Aaron Murray of Georgia was named first-team preseason All-Southeastern Conference quarterback by the league's coaches ahead of Texas A&M sophomore Johnny Manziel. The reigning Heisman Trophy winner was a second-team pick. Manziel, embroiled in a series of controversies off the field since becoming the first freshman to win the storied college player of the year award in December, was All-SEC First Team in media voting. Coaches do not vote for their own players in the all-conference poll. Eleven of 14 SEC schools have a representative on the first team. LSU junior Odell Beckham Jr. was named to all three teams at three different positions, while Florida junior Ronald Powell was elected to the third team at both linebacker and defensive lineman by the SEC head coaches. - The Sports Xchange

08/21/2013 - OTHER LSU PROSPECTS WORTH WATCHING: WR Odell Beckham, Jr. (5-11, 187, 4.50)*...Beckham doesn't boast the statistics of other highly regarded wideouts but the elusiveness and acceleration he provides as a pass-catcher and returner certainly has caught the attention of scouts. A breakout junior season appears possible in this offense, which could spark Beckham to test the NFL waters early. In two seasons with the Tigers Beckham has caught 84 passes for 1,188 yards and four touchdowns. He returned two punts for scores in 2012. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com

05/11/2014 - Besides being chosen in the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft, New Giants receiver Odell Beckham, Jr. has a few other things he can look forward to once he reports to begin work with his new team. For one, he'll be joining fellow receiver Rueben Randle, who played with Beckham for a bit while the two were at LSU. "My big brother," Beckham said of Randle. "He kind of taught me the ropes when I came into LSU and now I'm back with him again. It's pretty incredible."

Beckham will also have an opportunity to catch passes from quarterback Eli Manning, whose jersey he used to regularly admire during his time at Isidore Newman High School in New Orleans. "I remember walking through the school and seeing his jersey, along with Peyton's," Beckham said of Isidore Newman's most famous NFL alumni thus far. "Every single day it was just kind of motivation to me. I threw with them a couple times, so I know exactly what he has in store and what he has to offer. I'm really looking forward to getting back together with him." - The Sports Xchange
