Bottom Line

If Green-Beckham had kept his nose clean in Missouri, the SEC Championship game might have gone differently. One thing that surely would go differently is Amari Cooper wouldn’t be the No. 1 receiver prospect in college football. I think Cooper is good but not special as he gets the ball thrown his way nearly every play to have more than enough opportunities to make plays.

But at 6’6″, 225 pounds with 4.3 wheels, Beckham is the definition of special as he has much better hands than Cooper too. So if he gets bypassed early in the first round, a playoff team with a solid quarterback isn’t going to be able to resist. Then he’s going to win NFL Rookie of the Year and have a Moss-like impact on his team, making them Super Bowl contenders.

He needs to go ahead and enter.
