2014 NFL Draft: LSU Tigers' WR Odell Beckham Jr to attend draft

Add former LSU Tigers wide receiver and return man extraordinaire Odell Beckham Jr.to the list of names who will be at Radio City Music Hall for the 2014 NFL Draft in New York in May.

Beckham won the Paul Hornung Award as the nation’s most versatile player in college football last season and it is that versatility as a receiver, punt returner and kick returner that has seen Beckham make a stedy rise up NFL draft boards after a 1,000-yard season at LSU that saw him break the school record for single-season all-purpose yards and threaten to break Randall Cobb‘s SEC record.

Beckham has been a popular pick in recent mock drafts of the Pittsburgh Steelers at No. 15 where he would give Ben Roethlisberger a second target opposite Antonio Brown in the passing game and replace the production of Emmanuel Sanders who signed with the Denver Broncos in free agency.
