NFL RUSH
Rookie Spotlight: Odell Beckham Jr.
In a bit of a surprise selection, the New York Giants chose speedy LSU WR Odell Beckham Jr. with their first pick in the NFL Draft.

With Eli Manning poised for a bounce back year, Odell Beckham Jr. might be a name you'll be hearing frequently.

But just who is this guy? We're glad you asked.
