Odell Beckham says Giants WR Sterling Shepard is 'going to be phenomenal'
Star wideout Odell Beckham Jr. says he is excited to play with rookie Sterling Shepard for reasons he'd prefer not elaborate at this time.
"He's going to be a phenomenal player," Beckham said Tuesday after the Giants opened their three-day mandatory minicamp. "I just feel like I really know what he's capable of, and I'd rather let him just shock the world than spill his secrets."
"He can run routes, he can catch, he can pretty much do it all. I'm definitely looking forward to seeing him develop," Beckham said, adding that Shepard has adjusted well to the Giants' offense after a few understandable early rough patches while learning the system."
It appears that Shepard is going to play starter's snaps regardless of the status of Victor Cruz. Rueben Randle was the #32 WR in PPR formats serving as the Giants' WR2 last year. Shepard is small and quick and could play the Randall Cobb role in Ben McAdoo's offense.
