As the Giants get set to open mandatory minicamp today, EA Sports released the official gameplay trailer for Madden NFL 16.

Last month, Giants wide receiver and reigning AP Offensive Rookie of the Year Odell Beckham Jr. edged out All-Pro tight end Rob Gronkowski of the Patriots in a fan vote to become the youngest player to be featured on the cover.

"Every now and then someone comes along and changes everything," the trailer begins, "but finding them is easier said than done."

The teaser for the popular video game then goes into a two-minute drill at MetLife Stadium, where Eli Manning leads a game-winning drive over the Packers that eventually ends with Beckham making a play in the end zone reminiscent of "The Catch" that launched the rookie into stardom.

The video provides the first glimpse of all-new playmaking tools, highlighting the battle for Air Supremacy.

"Odell Beckham Jr. is a true playmaker and a perfect fit for this year's game," said Randy Chase, senior director of marketing for EA Sports.

"He's an unstoppable force out on the field, and the Madden NFL 16 cover is further vindication that the fans believe he's a player to watch in the coming years."

Giants.com looks back at the cover athletes since 2000.
