Yeah, this guy.
After a year of highlight reels and record-setting performances, the NFL has announced that New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. is the Offensive Rookie of the Year.

Among the numerous rookie wide receivers and QBs who came in and set the NFL on fire, none did it with as much frequency or with as much wow-factor as the Giants No. 12 overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft.
After missing the first three games of the season due to injuries, Beckham emerged as one of the premier receivers not just on a Giants roster that had lost Pro Bowler Victor Cruz, but in the entire NFL. His now-legendary catch against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday Night Football (pictured above) quickly rose to the ranks of being one of the greatest catches in NFL history.
From a stats perspective, Beckham Jr. also impressed in a huge way, leading the NFL in receiving yards/game – and setting an NFL record for yards/game by a rookie. He finished with 91 receptions for 1,305 yards and 12 TDs – top 10 in the NFL in all of those categories – and he was named to the Pro Bowl.
All of those were rookie records for the New York Giants, who finished 6-10 in 2014.
