Giants’ Odell Beckham Jr. Coming Up Big in Training Camp

Published

on

New York Giants’ wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. is making an impact during training camp, both on the field and with his work with teammates and with coaches.

Beckham is making the normal big plays fans have been accustomed to see during drills and play on the field, but is also taking time to work with teammates, such as Sterling Shepard, whenever there is a break in the action, or a free moment.

“Most of the time, it’s about technique or what I was thinking on some route or what he was thinking,” Shepard said of Beckham, according to ESPN’s Jordan Raanan. “Or whatever is coming up in the script and what we’re excited for. We’re always picking each other’s brain. I’m always picking his brain, for sure, trying to see what he is thinking or what he thought about whatever just happened or I just did.”

Even Giants head coach Pat Shurmur has noted that obvious passion Beckham has for the game of football.

“I see what I expected to see when we started to communicate back in February,” Shurmur said.. “This guy loves to play football, he trains extremely hard, he’s totally engaged in the meetings behind the scenes, the things that the world is not aware of, and he’s got a lot of passion for the game. We were just out in a walk-through and I saw three or four times when he was talking to different players about certain techniques within the play. That’s all good stuff.”

Giants wide receivers coach Tyke Tolbert is also raving about Beckham’s impact.

“The fact is that he is talking ball a lot,” Tolbert said. “Sometimes you think guys don’t like to talk ball when they are in there, but you see him going over stuff and talking ball with other guys. Talking about different plays, talking about different techniques. ‘How can you do this better, how can you do that better?’

“That’s what the great ones do. They sit back and not only do it on the field, but when they are off the field, they are looking at somebody else and seeing how they can do this better or that better. He talks ball a lot when he is not in there.”

“He’s probably the best teammate I’ve been around as far as getting good feedback,” Giants cornerback Eli Apple said. “After the play, we always talk about our techniques and what we did on this play to change things up and keep each other on our toes. So it’s good feedback all the time.”

Jaguars’ Calais Campbell Believes Giants’ Saquon Barkley Will Be ‘Special’

Jacksonvile Jaguars veteran defensive lineman Calais Campbell came away from Sunday’s game against the New York Giants victorious, but also impressed by the play or Giants’ rookie running back Saquon Barkley.

Campbell believes that Barkley will be a “special” player.

“I mean, I knew right away,” Campbell said, according to NJ.com. “The first run and the first couple times I tackled him, I said; ‘this kid has something.’ … Obviously, you see it on tape. But we didn’t get to watch a lot of tape on him. It’s his college tape. Coming into the NFL against a team like ours, and making some of the plays he made, that kid’s going to be special.”

Campbell believes that if the running back can stay healthy, Barkley “might one day be a Hall of Famer”.
