Odell Beckham Jr. or Dez Bryant? Forget which team they play for. Given a choice, which susperstar wide receiver would you rather have, the 22-year-old phenom who is Beckham, or the 26-year-old two-time Pro Bowler in Bryant? SI.com's Doug Farrar answered the question by choosing Beckham. Here is why:

Why would I take Beckham over Bryant? For the same reason I'd take Luck over Rodgers, I'd want the player with the higher potential for greatness over the player who has already established himself as great. Bryant is a truly outstanding receiver, but Beckham has already displayed the kind of skills rarely seen even in this era of game-breaking wideouts.

Basically, Farrar is saying he would take the superstar who is four years younger.Farrar says he is choosing players "going forward," so I have to believe he is thinking long-term and not only about 2015. With that in mind it is hard to disagree, unless you believe Beckham's hamstrings and Bryant 6-foot-2, 225-pound frame make him a better bet to remain healthy and productive.

Your thoughts, Giants fans? Try to separate yourself from the fact that Bryant plays for the villainous Dallas Cowboys and give an honest answer. Which guy would you rather have for the next 3-4 seasons?
