2014 Outlook: Super Sleeper (high risk/potential)Last updated on Jul-15-2014 by Rob Warner
The Giants found their Hakeem Nicks replacement with the 12th overall pick of the 2014 draft. Beckham (5-foot-11 and 198 pounds) dominated at the combine, posting an unofficial forty time of 4.31 and a 10-yard split of 1.50 seconds. The receiver has strong hands and is explosive after the catch. His pro-ready route-running and separation skills should help him hit the ground running in his rookie season. The LSU alum hauled in 143 passes during his three collegiate seasons, gaining 2,340 yards (16.4 YPC) and 12 touchdowns. He also has special teams value as evidenced by his two punt return scores. His ADP has him selected around WR53 (126.54). Beckham has the most value in dynasty formats, but could potentially have an excellent rookie campaign if the Giants give him starter snaps.
Giants rookie wide receiver Odell Beckham took part in the team's first practice of training camp Tuesday, but he's not 100 percent.
Beckham said prior to the practice that a hamstring injury he suffered during the spring is "feeling a lot better" but it may not be fully healed. Then Beckham appeared to pull up slightly while going out on a deep route during the practice.
Just something to watch. Hamstring injuries can linger for a long time on any player, but they are especially debilitating for speedy guys such as Beckham. The dynamic first-rounder is a big-time dynasty prospect, but might be used as a decoy on a lot of plays this season.
