2. WR Odell Beckham, Jr. Drafted By: New York Giants (2014)
There’s really no question about which LSU players should top the list, though plenty will argue about what order they should be ranked in. We’ll stick with number two for OBJ, though that is no real slight to him. Odell Beckham Jr. had 59 catches for 1,152 yards and 8 TDs his final season at LSU before being selected 12th overall by the New York Giants.
Beckham was a star already his rookie season in the NFL with 91 receptions for 1,305 yards and 12 TDs, leading the league in yards per game with one of the best rookie receiving years all time. He didn’t slow down from there, with at least 95 catches, 1,350 yards, and 10 TDs in each of his next two seasons. Injuries and poor quarterback play slowed OBJ over the last two seasons, and the Giants shocked the NFL when they traded Beckham to the Cleveland Browns this offseason. Now he’ll catch passes from Baker Mayfield and team up once again with LSU teammate and best friend Jarvis Landry.
