Odell Beckham Jr. Blazes Through 4.31-Second 40

Odell Beckham Jr. opened up a ton of eyes with his blazing fast 40 time today. We all knew that he was fast and that he was going to destroy the 40-yard sprint and he flew through it.

Beckham also has some of the best hands of all the prospects in the draft. His combination of speed and hands are going to put him high on some draft boards. There are a lot of solid wide receivers available in this draft and a blazing fast 40-time will separate him from the rest of the pack.

Some teams will be looking for a taller receiver, but Beckham shows that he can blow past receivers and grab the football.

We will see how the rest of the receivers group finishes today, but Beckham should stand out with his time in the 40. We still are waiting to see how Sammy Watkins runs today as well. Beckham was projected to be taken in the top 2 rounds.
