Beckham finished his junior season at LSU with 2,315 all-purpose yards, setting a school record and finishing No. 2 in SEC single-season history.

In 2013, the junior wide receiver teamed with Jarvis Landry to become the first set of receivers in LSU history to go over 1,000-yards in the same season.

Beckham caught 59 passes for 1,152 yards and 8 touchdowns last year.
