The third receiver to come off the board during the NFL Draft, receiver Odell Beckham Jr., has signed his rookie contract, the Giants announced Monday.

The four-year deal should be a fully-guaranteed $10.406 million contract with a signing bonus of $5.888 million. The No. 12 overall pick's 2014 salary cap hit for the Giants will be about $1.9 million.

And Beckham certainly looks thrilled to be a Giants employee.

The selection also drew positive reviews from's Pete Prisco, who gave the pick a grade of B+ and wrote, "Might be in the minority, but I like it. Will be better than [Mike] Evans. They need a WR to go with [Victor] Cruz."
