The Miami Herald reports that the Miami Dolphins plan to bring in LSU WR Odell Beckham Jr. for a visit.
The Dolphins have several receivers on their radar that they could take in the first or second round, starting with LSU’s Odell Beckham, USC’s Marqise Lee, Mississippi’s Donte Moncrief, Oregon State’s Brandin Cooks and Florida State’s Kelvin Benjamin. It looks like the Dolphins could be looking for a future star wideout sooner than later. Odell Beckham Jr. is an explosive prospect with good instincts and the ability to stretch the field. With Brian Hartline and Mike Wallace's future up in the air, the Dolphins could use another dynamic play maker, who could also help out on special teams right away. Apr 20 - 7:24 PM

LSU's Odell Beckham Jr. and Oregon State's Brandin Cooks will both visit the Jets this week.

Jets coach Rex Ryan has made an offseason priority out of improving the team's WRs. Despite the additions of Eric Decker and Jacoby Ford, New York isn't done shopping. It would be a slight surprise if Beckham reaches the Jets at No. 18, but Cooks could be in play.

ESPN's Kevin Weidl believes LSU WR Odell Beckham Jr.'s instincts, vision, and acceleration to find and exploit seams as a returner are all "exceptional" traits.

"Explosive athlete!" Weidl tweeted. Neither the game tape nor his measurements will deny that fact. Beckham (5-foot-11 1/4 and 198 pounds) was a star of the combine, posting an unofficial forty time of 4.31 and a 10-yard split of 1.50 seconds. The Tigers' star is capable of taking huge chunks of yards on bubble screens, slants and crossing routes, but you can also send him deep. In addition to the speed and athleticism, he'll go up and get the ball in contested situations.

LSU WR Odell Beckham Jr. had dinner with the Steelers on Tuesday, and also met with the 49ers and Bills this week.

Pittsburgh is known to be extremely interested in Beckham, though it's no longer a guarantee that he'll be on the board at No. 15. NFL Media analyst Daniel Jeremiah said recently that he wouldn't be shocked if Beckham snuck into the top 10. Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin attended Beckham's pro day Wednesday in Baton Rouge.

NFL Media analyst Daniel Jeremiah believes LSU WR Odell Beckham Jr. could sneak into the top 10.

"Every now and then you have a player go in the top 10 (and) nobody saw it coming. How about WR Odell Beckham Jr. from LSU," Jeremiah said. "This is a player a lot of people are excited about. And if we see a guy like Sammy Watkins potentially go with that No. 2 overall pick, and then you see Mike Evans go early on, I think Odell Beckham Jr. is next in line. What he can do in the passing game -- go up and get the footblal, run after the catch, can stretch the field vertically, and then the added bonus (is) he's an outstanding returner. So to me, he's a wild-card player. I think people might be shocked on the outside, but a lot of love for him inside the league." The Bills at No. 9 are a possibility, as are the Lions at No. 10 if they fail to trade up for Sammy Watkins and see Mike Evans come off the board before their time.

LSU WR Odell Beckham Jr. "will be a superstar at the next level," according to NFL media analyst Bucky Brooks.

The 5-foot-11, 198-pounder is an "explosive playmaker" with the "speed and elusiveness to produce fireworks at the drop of a hat," according to the analyst, who compared him to Victor Cruz. "Beckham is fast enough to run away from defenders on the perimeter, yet displays the power and toughness to run through arm tackles in traffic," Brooks wrote. "Thus, he regularly turns short passes into big gains on bubble screens, slants and crossing routes. Not to mention, he's a home-run hitter on vertical routes."

LSU WR Odell Beckham Jr. will visit the Bills and Jets next week, according to NFL.com's Gil Brandt.

The Jets at No. 18 should be Beckham Jr.'s floor. He is not often discussed with Sammy Watkins and Mike Evans, but we believe it is in the realm of possibility that Beckham Jr. could end up as the top receiver prospect from this class. His vertical game is outstanding, has the skills to win in the short to intermediate areas, and wins in contested situations despite a 5'11/195 lbs frame.

NJ.com quoted an executive in personnel from an AFC team saying that LSU WR Odell Beckham Jr. was just a slight step below Clemson's Sammy Watkins.

"I really like this guy," the personnel man said. "He’s not Watkins, but he’s right there. He can run, and he runs great routes. And he has the same return ability, if you need that." A scouting director from an NFC team added: "He’s real good after the catch. He’s a big-play guy. No, he’s not Sammy, but he’s darn good." Beckham (5-foot-11 1/4 and 198 pounds) was a star of the combine, posting an unofficial forty time of 4.31 and a 10-yard split of 1.50 seconds.

LSU WR Odell Beckham Jr. improved from No. 20 to 17 on Mel Kiper's Big Board.

Kiper's rankings included jumps by wide receivers Brandin Cooks (Oregon State) and Beckham, while USC WR Marqise Lee dropped five spots (No. 15 to 20). Beckham's stock has jumped around the league since a huge performance at the NFL's Scouting Combine. NFL.com's Daniel Jeremiah recently shot Beckham Jr. from No. 40 to 19 in his prospect rankings.

NFL.com's Daniel Jeremiah propelled LSU WR Odell Beckham Jr. from No. 40 to 19 in his prospect rankings.

While teammate Jarvis Landry watches his draft stock plummet, Beckham has seen his surge in recent weeks. The reason? Landry struggled at the combine, while Beckham (5-foot-11 1/4 and 198 pounds) dominated, posting an unofficial forty time of 4.31 and a 10-yard split of 1.50 seconds. "Beckham is a very productive receiver and returner. He is very sudden in his release and explodes out of the break point. He has strong hands to pluck the ball outside of his frame and is dangerous after the catch," wrote Jeremiah. "As a returner, he is very elusive and has the speed to go the distance."

LSU WR Odell Beckham Jr. is going to be a "star in the NFL; fast," according to CBS Sports' Bruce Feldman.

"I spoke to several NFL personnel folks who came away loving LSU WR/KR Odell Beckham Jr.," wrote Feldman. "I've been on the Beckham bandwagon for a while, and he promptly tore it up in Indy, running 4.4 and displaying magnificent hands and quickness in the on-field drills." Beckham Jr. also posted an unofficial forty time of 4.31 and a 10-yard split of 1.50 seconds. "Beckham's stock seems to be soaring," added Feldman. Rotoworld ranks him as the draft's No. 19 overall prospect.

LSU WR Odell Beckham Jr. ran two unofficial forty times of 4.31 and 4.40 seconds.

Beckham Jr. also posted a 10 yard split of 1.50 seconds. Rotoworld's Josh Norris listed the LSU receiver as the No. 19 overall player due to Beckham Jr.'s explosion and willingness to go up and get it at the catch point. He belongs in the first-round.

LSU WR Odell Beckham Jr. measured in at 5 feet 11 and 1/4 inches and 198 pounds at the NFL Combine.

Beckham Jr. checks in under six feet tall, but he goes up and gets it at the catch point with the best of them. Add on his ability to create separation on the ground with agility and explosion, and Beckham Jr. has a great shot to be the No. 3 receiver off the board.
Feb 21 - 11:07 AM

LSU WR Odell Beckham Jr. debuted on Mel Kiper's big board at No. 21 overall.

This makes Beckham Jr. the No. 4 receiver on the board, behind Sammy Watkins, Marqise Lee and Mike Evans. "What first catches your eye with Beckham is the speed, with a potent initial burst off the line and then a good second gear to reach full speed quickly," Kiper writes. "But the pass-catching skills are also good because not only does Beckham create good separation underneath, but he'll also make plays in traffic..." Our own Josh Norris listed Beckham Jr. No. 19 overall in his latest set of rankings.

LSU WR Odell Beckham Jr. will continue to gain momentum "as scouts get into more late game tape and we approach the combine and pro-day phase of the process," according to Scouts Inc.'s Kevin Weidl.

Weidl thinks Beckham Jr. will test exceedingly well at the combine. "While he still needs polish as a route-runner and has some occasional drops, Beckham's blend of suddenness, acceleration and top-end speed is evident on tape," wrote Weidl. "He brings strong vertical capabilities outside the hashes, and he is dangerous with the ball in his hands after the catch and in the return game." Scouts are beginning to prefer Beckham Jr. over teammate Jarvis Landry, according to Weidl. "Beckham has the speed explosiveness to create big plays outside the hashes and develop into a strong No. 2, ideally as an X receiver," he wrote. "On the flip side, some scouts have expressed concerns about whether Landry can thrive in a No. 2 role because he doesn't have exceptional size to overcome average quickness and top-end speed, which may give him problems consistently creating separation on the outside."
