New York Giants Select Odell Beckham Jr. 12th Overall in 2014 NFL Draft

Adam Hunger-USA TODAY Sports

The New York Giants selected Odell Beckham Jr. 12th overall.

The wait is over for Odell Beckham Jr. Thursday night the New York Football Giants called his name early, making him the 12th overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft. Here's Beckham getting the call:

Extra points for the sharp suit, Odell.

Beckham becomes the highest WR drafted in LSU history, besting Michael Clayton by three spots. He's also reunited with former LSU teammate Rueben Randle.

It's hard to imagine a better situation for Beckham, who can step right into a lineup featuring a couple of other receiving options, and a QB who is capable of getting him the ball. It's not inconceivable that he could walk right into a 1,000-yard season. Of note, Beckham and Eli Manning are both graduates of Newman High School in New Orleans.

Beckham also appeared on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday Night:

Beckham's long been a favorite of mine, so the fact that he now plays for my most hated rival NFL team is a tough pill to swallow, though I have the feeling I won't be able to find it within me to root against him.

From our SBN Blog Bro neighbors at Big Blue View, you can get their reaction to the pick, reactions from the Giants Front Office, and their general fan reaction.

Congrats, Odell, you deserve it.
