49ers meet with LSU WR Odell Beckham Jr.


 

The 49ers are taking a serious look at top flight receiver Odell Beckham Jr and according to SiriusXM NFL Radio he has already met with the team.

It’s widely known that the that the Niner’s have a need at Wide Receiver and this exclusive meeting solidifies their interest in snatching a high caliber reciever in the first round. The man known commonly as “OBJ” is a household name among SEC fans as he flashed sky high potential in his career at LSU.

Beckham’s draft stock is rising after posting exceptional combine numbers and is slated between the 15-20 overall range. Unfortunately for the Niners they sit at the bottom of the round so they would need to trade up to get him.

It would take a similar deal to when the Atlanta Falcons  traded up for star reciever Julio Jones. They gave up five draft picks to move up to the 6th spot and gave up two firsts, a second, and two fourths.

This is a lot of stock put into one player but it’s worth the gamble in the long run to grab a game changer like “OBJ”.
