Odell Beckham Jr. of the New York Giants has been named NFL Offensive Rookie of the Month for November. Beckham, the Giants' No. 1 pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, led the NFL with 593 yards in November. He is the first rookie in NFL history with more than 90 yards receiving in five games in a calendar month.

Beckham's month was, of course, highlighted by the spectacular 43-yard touchdown catch he made against the Dallas Cowboys. If you haven't gotten one already, you can get a commemorative Beckham Catch T-shirt from our partner, BreakingT.

Beckham headlines an extraordinary class of receivers taken in the 2014 first round, including Sammy Watkins (Buffalo Bills), Mike Evans (Tampa Bay Buccaneers), Brandin Cooks (New Orleans Saints) and Kelvin Benjamin (Carolina Panthers).

With 699 yards receiving on 48 receptions, Beckham has a chance to break the Giants' franchise record for receiving yards by a rookie. Jeremy Shockey had 894 yards receiving in 2002.
