Terron Beckham, the 5-foot-11, 230-pound running back who is the closest thing we have to a real life Incredible Hulk, is chasing his dream of playing in the NFL. He recently smashed through his Pro Day, posting a 4.47-second 40-Yard Dash and hitting 36 reps on the 225-pound Bench Press, the latter of which would have ranked first among all draft prospects who participated in the NFL Combine. Beckham also went 44.5 inches high on the Vertical Jump, just 1.5 inches short of the all-time Combine record.
Aside from his otherworldly physical talents, Beckham is also famously known as the cousin of Odell Beckham Jr., the stud wide receiver for the New York Giants. We hadn't heard much from Odell about the NFL potential of his larger, more jacked cousin—until now, which might have been for the best. When finally asked if he thought his cousin had a shot at joining him in the pros, Odell sort of sidestepped the question.
"I hope that he can make it in there," Beckham Jr. says in a recent video. "I want him to come in there and shine, Beckham on the back of his jersey. I would love to see that. I wish him the best."
Alrighty then. Although Odell didn't dismiss his cousin's chances of hearing his name called at the NFL Draft in two weeks, he didn't exactly give him a ringing endorsement either. We will just have to wait and see if a team wants to give Terron a chance.
