Giants' WR corps continues to get younger with LSU's Odell Beckham
Well, I guess the Giants really aren't sold on Rueben Randle . They proved that tonight by taking someone from his alma mater. The Giants selected LSU wide receiver Odell Beckham with the 12th pick in Thursday night's NFL Draft.
The Giants now have Beckham, Randle, and Jerrel Jernigan to compete for their No. 2 WR job. All of those guys are currently under the age of 25. Beckham is small, but he is a polished wideout with 4.43-40 speed. He is also very dangerous as a returner. This has to make Eli Manning happy. As far as fantasy value, it all depends on what happens in camp. Beckham will have to fight for snaps, but, yes, he has loads of upside.
