WR Odell Beckham celebrates a score
Is Odell Beckham the best wide receiver in the country?
As sensationalistic as that may sound, his first two weeks are impressive as any we've seen in quite some time.
In the Tigers' 56-17 win over UAB, Beckham did it all. He caught five passes for 136 yards and three touchdowns, tacked on a 15-yard rush and returned a punt for 59 yards as well.
Clemson wideout Sammy Watkins may have something to say about the title of "best receiver," but Beckham is showing he belongs in the conversation after just two weeks.
Imagine if Beckham had been mentioned in the preseason Heisman conversation. That would probably give him an early lead at this point, especially since his first great performance came against a solid TCU defense.
As it is, he's certainly an early season dark horse. But more importantly for LSU, he's a big-time weapon in an offense that has struggled to score over the past couple of seasons. Here's a guess that future opponents will be keeping an eye on No. 3.
