This is the 80th installment of a series of articles covering each player on the Cleveland Browns roster. If you enjoy (tolerate) this article, I encourage you to check back each day to read each one.

#13- Odell Beckham, Jr.- WR- LSU

If you told me a year and a half ago that the Browns would acquire Odell Beckham, Jr. and he would be excited to play here, I would’ve thought you were out of your mind. Heck, if you would’ve told me that Cleveland would win more than four games in a season, I would’ve been suspicious. All that changed when John Dorsey came to town. I don’t need to get into specifics, but what a difference it makes having a competent general manager and a talented young quarterback (who he selected).

Beckham is supremely talented which is shown by his 5,476 receiving yards and 44 touchdowns in the first five seasons of his NFL career. Some media members have voiced concern over his attitude because he punched a kicking net one time, but I don’t see that being an issue with his best friend Jarvis Landry on the team, as well as Baker Mayfield, Freddie Kitchens, and John Dorsey. The only negative thing that creeps into my mind is the fact that he has only played in 16 games over the last two seasons due to injury. He has actually only played in more than 12 games twice in his career. With all that being said, 12 games of Odell Beckham, Jr. is (probably) a tad bit better than 16 games of Dwayne Bowe or Kenny Britt.  

For years, Cleveland has been a destination for fading veterans to come collect one last paycheck before riding into the sunset. Now it is a spot where bona fide stars want to come be a part of this franchise. This is usually the part of the breakdown where I predict if the player will make the roster and where they fit in. I’m going to go out on a limb and say OBJ will indeed have a roster spot (even though Tony Grossi pointed out that he skipped some mandatory practices in April).

If you enjoyed this article, be sure to check out yesterday’s breakdown on Joe Schobert.
