Odell Beckham Jr. was the 12th player and third wide receiver selected in the 2014 NFL Draft. At the end of the year, despite playing in just 12 games, he made the biggest impression of any rookie, catching 91 passes for 1,305 yards and 12 touchdowns.

On SiriusXM Fantasy Sports Radio’s Rosterwatch, Alex Dunlap explained why Beckham stands out despite not being a red-zone monster – for example, Carolina Panthers rookie Kelvin Benjamin – or an amazing athlete – like Buffalo Bills wide receiver Sammy Watkins.

“It’s not so much his ability to catch the ball, or his ability to find his way to get these passes from Eli Manning. It’s also the fact that even when he’s double-teamed … his cuts are disgusting,” Dunlap said. “He gets in and out of these breaks so fast. He just gets open.”

“It’s not about total athleticism, it’s more about separation capabilities,” Dunlap added. “All the hype around him is completely 100 percent – you will see that as we come into next season.”

Dunlap also referred to Beckham as a potential future Hall of Famer.
