VIDEO: Odell Beckham Jr. Is Special, And Here’s Why

New, comments

Former Giants offensive lineman Geoff Schwartz explains

What makes Odell Beckham Jr. special on the football field? Former New York Giants lineman and current SB Nation contributor Geoff Schwartz gives us the low-down in the video above.

Here are some of the things Schwartz said.

"This is what makes Odell Beckham Jr. special. He turns a 7-yard slant into a touchdown."

We have seen that over and over in Beckham’s three seasons. When the timing is right and the defense makes the slightest mistake, he’s gone.

"Odell is the league's best wide receiver against man coverage. He's unstoppable."

Ask Josh Norman. He won’t tell you the truth, but the film doesn’t lie.

Schwartz also called Cover 2 defenses the “Achilles heel” of the Giants’ offense because it “takes away Odell's window in the slant/flat or the slant/swing combo."

The answer? First-round pick Evan Engram.

"Excellent pass-catching tight end with wide receiver speed attacking the most vulnerable part of a Cover 2 defense, the middle of the field."

"So, take your pick. Let Odell shred you on short routes or play Cover 2 and open up opportunities for his teammates. Either way, Odell Beckham Jr. is a one-of-a-kind weapon."

Giants’ fans can’t wait to see that combo in action.
