New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. debuted at No. 32 in the NFL Network Top 100 list, which is voted on by NFL players. Beckham is seventh among wide receivers, per NFL.com's Marc Sessler.

"I don't know what kind of crazy, eerie focus or what kind of super power he has, but his hands and his eyes are special," said teammate Andre Williams.

Now, as long as Beckham can get healthy and stay healthy there should be more spectacular plays and special moments in store.

Now, let's get to the more of your Thursday morning Giants headlines.

Ereck Flowers: Progress on field, toward contract

With Will Beatty sidelined, the development of rookie left tackle Ereck Flowers is central to the success of the Giants offense. Flowers told Tom Rock of Newsday that he feels he has already improved as a player since the Giants made him the ninth overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft.

"I'm leaving here better [than I arrived],'' he said of wrapping up minicamp this week and taking a six-week break before returning for training camp, "and trying to come back even better than that.''

He also told Rock that he and the Giants are "making progress" toward a contract. Flowers is representing himself.

Beckham tired of sitting, teammates' barbs

Beckham is not practicing because of his latest bout with hamstring issues. Here is part of what Beckham said:

"For me, this is what I love doing, and this is what I feel like my purpose was to do," Beckham said. "So it takes a lot of strength for me to be able to come here every day and not practice, have to hear the little remarks, the little jokes, this and that. ...

"Everybody," Beckham said when asked who was giving him grief. "Because of the hamstring last year and then the fame, it's like, 'Oh, you're too big-time now,' all that. So I mean, I just hear it and you want to blow it off, but after a while it gets old, and it kind of bothers you."

Lookin' good

Many Giants had to don full uniforms after practice for media photo shoots. Here is a peek.
