Beckham best route runner in the draft

Odell Beckham Jr. was the best route runner in the draft, according to Panthers GM Dave Gettleman (Tucker, May 21).

The Giants took Beckham with the No. 12 pick in the first round. The Panthers picked at No. 28 and selected WR Kelvin Benjamin out of Florida State.

Beckham said he is working on both the X and Z routes to be more flexible, especially in the two-minute drill (BBB, May 21).


i don't know if being the best route runner in the draft means he is a good route runner since so many at the college level are deficient at that ability, but that is something that should put beckham ahead of the game from the beginning.
