The vision. The elevation. The windmill. The only thing missing from Odell Beckham Jr.'s catch today was a second hand. His career highlight reel at this point is now the length of a feature film, but this one will go near the top, even though it was in practice and not a game. You could judge how good it was by the reaction of the players, coaches, and fans who witnessed it.

"I'm just in a different place, I don't even know how to explain it," Beckham said. "I don't even feel like I'm here sometimes. My mind is just out of that. But like I said, just trying to get better each and every day. We talk about it, one percent. So, what can I do to get one percent better than yesterday? And that's obviously the goal. If you stayed the same, you didn't get better at all. And if you're not getting better, that's not why I'm here. So like I said, I'm just trying to get better."

"I like two hands on the ball better than one," coach Ben McAdoo said. "I like completions better than incompletions."

TE EVAN ENGRAM

Iron sharpening iron has been a major theme of training camp between one of the best secondaries in the league against one of the best receiving corps. Engram, the Giants' first-round pick, looked pretty sharp today when he caught a touchdown over All-Pro safety Landon Collins in the corner of the end zone on a pass from Eli Manning. Collins, after yelling some frustration with allowing the touchdown, went over and gave the rookie a high-five. The practice didn't start exceptionally well for Engram, but he rallied to make a big play, which is a good sign for a young player.

WR BRANDON MARSHALL

At 6-foot-5 and 232 pounds, Marshall is the biggest receiver at Manning's disposal in quite some time. But he didn't get to 12,000 yards on size alone. From inside the 10-yard line, Marshall made a nice move to get open and catch a pass in the end zone.

"First and foremost, Brandon is a big, strong man, and he's a good route runner for a big man," McAdoo said. "He's not just a big guy running down the field and catching throws facemask and higher. He's a big man who can push in and out of breaks. He's making a lot of progress on his hook routes and his comeback-type routes for us, so he's a good route runner that way. He has a large catch radius because of his weight and because of his wingspan."
