Saints 'would be a perfect fit,' Odell Beckham Jr. says

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; But then is the difference between signing a CB/S in the first and Landry in the second as big as Beckham in the first and a 2nd round CB/S. My guess is the drop off is bigger in the later....

I don't really like the idea of going DB in the 1st. If a big time safety is there, okay..but I'd prefer some more pass rushers or an athletic MLB. Corner is deep in free agency, and if you strike early in free agency there's some really quality guys at safety too. Jairus Byrd? Louis Delmas? There's proven commodities to be had.

There isnt a player in FA I would love to sign more than Byrd but he wants big money and I just can't see it happening. The Browns are after him and have loads of free cap space to pay him with.

If the Browns get him maybe they let TJ Ward walk. Still a major upgrade. We move Kenny to FS, let Ward run SS, and we're set.

I prefer Landry but both are great options. The reason why Beckham is rated higher in some publications is because Landry lacks top end speed. He's not as quick as Beckham. Other than that, Landry tops Beckham in every other way.

Idk papz. My boy Landry has good size, and he'll go up and get it...but Beckham will too even though he's smaller. I just keep thinking about that one handed catch he made on the sideline in the most recent bowl game. That kid is special. He might be the next Steve Smith.

I hate him already.
He is called Beckham (cant stand the soccer player) and he maybe like Smith.

Re: Saints 'would be a perfect fit,' Odell Beckham Jr. says

Currently Beckham is ranked the 27th best prospect.

NFL Draft - 2014 NFL Draft Prospects - CBSSports.com - NFLDraftScout.com

Hmmm, 27th huh?


Analysis
STRENGTHS: Smooth athlete with very good acceleration to get up to top speed quickly. Terrific shake and burst out of his cuts to beat press and do something after the catch - dangerous with the ball. Excellent vision with dynamic moves. Good footwork, timing and depth in his routes to create separation and catch the ball well in stride.

Much improved hands, doing a nice job elevating and extending to snare the ball from the air - large catching radius and tracks well. Ball appears to slow down for him at the catch point, making fluid adjustments with natural body control.

Speedy and explosive return man on special teams with vision, awareness and toughness to create - two career punt returns for scores. Consistent production all three seasons at LSU with career-highs in 2013.

WEAKNESSES: Only average height and overall body strength - room to get stronger. Lacks elite speed and can be caught from behind by NFL DBs. Timid at times over the middle.

Has improved leaps and bounds catching the ball with his hands, but he will still have the occasional drop off his mitts. Missed blocking assignment and needs technique work in this area.

Room to improve his judgment and consistency fielding punts. Only 12 career receiving scores in 34 career starts.

COMPARES TO: Cecil Shorts, Jacksonville Jaguars - Beckham and Shorts are both exciting players with the ball in their hands and have shown steady improvements catching the ball over the years.

I thought Landry was a little taller, but they are both the same size. Landry has more mass on him though.


One of the best catches I've ever seen live.


I thought this was the sickest moment of Beckham's season. My jaw dropped.
