Odell Beckham Jr. named to NFL's top 100


The question was not if Odell Beckham Jr. would make the Top 100 Players of 2015, it was just a matter of how high his peers would vote him.

On Wednesday night, we got our answer.

The Giants wide receiver and reigning AP Offensive Rookie of the Year came in at No. 32, as determined in polling of current players across the league.

Making his debut in the first year of eligibility, Beckham was one spot ahead of Broncos linebacker Von Miller and one behind Seahawks tight end Jimmy Graham. The remaining 30 will be unveiled over the next month in installments of 10 players each week.

"I don't know what kind of crazy, eerie focus or what kind of superpower he has, but his hands and his eyes are...they're special," Giants running back Andre Williams said in the feature on NFL Network.

"He's exciting," Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown added. "He's young and special and he's a pleasure to watch."

Meanwhile, some of Beckham's former LSU teammates also joined the conversation, including Dolphins wide receiver Jarvis Landry and Bengals running back Jeremy Hill.

"People know more now about 'The Catch' but I saw it every day," Landry said. "And I've seen stuff that's way crazier than that."

"I didn't believe it actually happened," Hill said. "I was just like looking around and I was like, 'Did this really just happen?'"

For the fifth consecutive year, current NFL players have voted to determine the top 100 players in the NFL.

Here is a look at some Giants who have made the list in past years:

2014: Safety Antrel Rolle (72)
2013: QB Eli Manning (43), DE Jason Pierre-Paul (55), WR Victor Cruz (58)
2012: Pierre-Paul (24), Manning (31), Cruz (39)
2011: DE Justin Tuck (60), Rolle (68), Guard Chris Snee (77)
