Odell Cornelious Beckham Jr. (born November 5, 1992), also known by his nickname "OBJ", is an American football wide receiver for the New York Giants of the National Football League (NFL). He was drafted by the New York Giants in the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft, and was the 12th pick overall. He played college football at LSU.
On November 23, 2014, during a game against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday Night Football, Beckham had 10 catches for 146 yards and two touchdowns, including a one-handed touchdown reception hailed as the "catch of the year", with Cris Collinsworth, Tony Dungy, Victor Cruz and even NBA superstar LeBron James all saying that it was one of the best catches ever. Beckham made this catch despite a pass interference penalty called on Dallas's Brandon Carr while diving backwards with full extension of his right hand using only three fingers. On December 8, 2014 the Pro Football Hall of Fame put Beckham's game-worn jersey from his famous one-handed catch game vs. Dallas on display.
