This guy definitely falls under the category of 'BEST PLAYER AVAILABLE' for Miami at pick 19.

Quote:
LSU WR Odell Beckham Jr. "will be a superstar at the next level," according to NFL media analyst Bucky Brooks.
The 5-foot-11, 198-pounder is an "explosive playmaker" with the "speed and elusiveness to produce fireworks at the drop of a hat," according to the analyst, who compared him to Victor Cruz. "Beckham is fast enough to run away from defenders on the perimeter, yet displays the power and toughness to run through arm tackles in traffic," Brooks wrote. "Thus, he regularly turns short passes into big gains on bubble screens, slants and crossing routes. Not to mention, he's a home-run hitter on vertical routes."


Quote:
NFL Media analyst Daniel Jeremiah believes LSU WR Odell Beckham Jr. could sneak into the top 10.
"Every now and then you have a player go in the top 10 (and) nobody saw it coming. How about WR Odell Beckham Jr. from LSU," Jeremiah said. "This is a player a lot of people are excited about. And if we see a guy like Sammy Watkins potentially go with that No. 2 overall pick, and then you see Mike Evans go early on, I think Odell Beckham Jr. is next in line. What he can do in the passing game -- go up and get the footblal, run after the catch, can stretch the field vertically, and then the added bonus (is) he's an outstanding returner. So to me, he's a wild-card player. I think people might be shocked on the outside, but a lot of love for him inside the league." The Bills at No. 9 are a possibility, as are the Lions at No. 10 if they fail to trade up for Sammy Watkins and see Mike Evans come off the board before their time.

I think Miami is looking for a player that can be a playmaker in the return game, something Beckham can provide. I have seen this kid play a good bit and he certainly has grown as a wide receiver, especially last year.

Very good hands, a hand catcher, and he very good after the catch in regards to YAC. He is not that Red Zone guy though.

Beckham looks like a complete wide receiver. I like the Cruz comparison alot, but has better hands. A very explosive playmaker. I see many Pro Bowl seasons in his future.

I wonder why more coaches in the league don't try to transition wide receivers to CB's or Safety..there are numerous guys that don't make the cut that I could see as good defenders...like Marlon Moore for us....I'm sure he would love to play defense more than only ST!!!!

I'm not sure if that will work. IF it did, I would think it would already be happening.
