Odell Beckham Jr. will be 28 years old this season in (November) 2020. Born in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Beckham attended high school in New Orleans. He was a three-sport athlete, playing football, basketball and ran track. Beckham was quite the swiss-army knife on the football field, playing QB, RB, WR, & CB.
As a junior, he caught 45 passes for 743 yards and 10 touchdowns, adding 3 more scores on the ground. As a senior, Beckham caught 50 passes for 1,010 yards and 19 touchdowns. Additionally, he ran for 331 yards and 6 touchdowns and averaged 30 yards per punt return.
Beckham excelled in sprinting and jumping events, just like his mother. Beckham also played soccer, growing up he idolized David Beckham. Considered a four-star recruit and the #6 wide receiver in the nation entering college, Beckham chose to attend Louisiana State University (LSU).
OBJ started nine games as a true freshman catching 41 passes for 475 yards and 2 touchdowns. In 2012 Beckham started in 12 games and finished with 43 receptions for 713 yards and 2 touchdowns, continuing to return punts and kickoffs. As a junior, he combined with Jarvis Landry to form one of the best wide receiver duos in college football.
He had a monster season, catching 59 passes for 1,152 yards and 8 touchdowns. He also led the SEC with 32 kickoff returns. Beckham’s athletic prowess helped him earn the 2013 Paul Hornung Award, given to the most versatile player in college football.
At the NFL Combine, Beckham measured 5’ 11 ¼” and 198 pounds, and he ran a 4.43-second 40-yard dash. The New York Giants chose him as the 12th pick in the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft, the third wide receiver taken. Unfortunately, his rookie season did not start ideally, as he struggled all training camp, preseason and the first 4 games of the regular season with a hamstring injury.
