Odell Beckham Jr. named to NFL.com’s All-Under-25 Team

Posted Mar 5, 2016

Odell Beckham Jr. and Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins were the Wideouts named to NFL.com’s All-Under-25 Team

First-round draft pick, Rookie of the Year, two Pro Bowls and a Madden cover make up just part of Odell Beckham Jr.’s list of accomplishments.   

And he’s only 23.

The Giants wide receiver, who broke Randy Moss’ NFL record (2,726) for most yards receiving through a player’s first two seasons, headlines the next generation of NFL stars and was recently named to NFL.com’s All-Under-25 Team. Beckham, the 12th overall draft pick out of LSU in 2014, turns 24 in November.

“If we didn't place Beckham on this list, our website would probably crash, and we would have to relaunch as NFL.org or NFL.edu,” Elliot Harrison wrote. “Beckham has enjoyed sensational moments, along with a few lows, on the way to stardom.

That said, his rookie campaign was one of the premier freshman seasons in NFL history -- he averaged a staggering 108.8 yards and one touchdown per game. For his career, he's posting 102 yards every time he goes out there.”
