Former LSU wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr was matched up against All-Pro cornerback Richard Sherman most of the day when the New York Giants took on the Seattle Seahawks this past Sunday.

Beckham finished the day with 7 receptions for 108 yards and after the game Sherman had some great things to say about the Giants rookie per

"'You're the real deal. You just have to keep working,'" Sherman said, according to Beckham. "And he was kind of telling me some of the things that were going on and some of the things he was seeing. He said, 'You're going to be a great player. Keep working.'"

"I thought Beckham was really good," Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said. "He really came out of there and he was the big factor early on ... I thought he showed that he was a really good football player [Sunday], and they've got a great one in that kid."

Sherman agreed with the assessment. He raved about Beckham's ability as well. No wonder he was selected out of LSU with the 12th-overall pick earlier this year.

"Beckham is a great player," Sherman said. "They have to depend on him. They have to take risks. They have to take shots in a game like this. That was his shot [on the interception]. He was able to get one earlier, which was a great play by him. Unfortunately, they weren't about to get this."
Here is Beckham putting a nice double move on Sherman from Sunday:
