Beckham is an excellent slot receiver prospect. He excels with the ball in his hands and can make defenders miss in short spaces.

Less than ideal height and strength. Will struggle against press coverage. Will need to beat defenders using agility and acceleration. Good route runner, but often lazy in his route consistency if he doesn't see the ball regularly. Not a good run blocker. Must continue to separate himself in a crowded draft class.

Decisive blocker at the second level.
Experience at multiple interior line spots. Above-average ability to make pre-snap reads and line calls. Tough attitude. Looks to put guys on their back. Killer instinct.
