The NFL’s best outside receivers, No. 3: Odell Beckham Jr., Giants
It would be unfair to call any receiver “likely” to knock Brown from his perch, but Beckham could have the best chance to do so. Football’s version of the “Human Highlight Reel” (props, Dominique Wilkins), Beckham already ranks top 20 in Giants history for receiving yards ... and he has played all of two seasons. After posting 91 catches for 1,305 yards and 12 touchdowns as a rookie, Beckham bumped up all of those totals to 96, 1,450 and and 13, respectively, during his sophomore campaign. Thirty-two of his receptions last season came out of the slot, adding to how difficult a matchup Beckham can be. He is flat out electrifying whenever the ball is in the vicinity. We know it doesn’t take a perfect throw for Beckham to come down with a catch.
