Giants Rookie Stands in for Victor Cruz
Victor Cruz better watch his back because the Giants rookie, Odell Beckham Jr. is on the rise to stardom. Beckham, twenty-two is making a name for himself. He has the chance to showcase his talents while filling in for Victor Cruz who is sidelined for the season due to a knee injury.
Beckham is the New York Giants wide receiver and since his start has received 25 passes and averaged 14 yards. He has 370 yds on the season and 3 touchdowns. He has 24 rushing yards with 0 fumbles.
Odell Beckham attended LSU, Louisiana State University, and was a “scoring threat everytime he got the ball”. He had over 1,000 yards in one season and was the Giants first round pick. He weighs in at 193 pounds and is 6 feet tall. Odell used to be a soccer player in his younger years, but didn't want to travel the world, so he gave football a shot.
Odell put together his second consecutive 100 yard game this past Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks and was guarded by the 2013 Super Bowl MVP Richard Sherman. Despite the Giants drought of wins, can there still be a glimpse of hope for the playoffs in their future? If so, you can bet it will be led by Odell Beckham Jr.
