Odell Bekham Jr. Is an excellent athlete. He holds many notable franchise and NFL records. I personally believe that the stars are the ones who should be on the covers of the games. Without a doubt Odell Bekham Jr. is one of the leagues stars, illustrated by his rookies season alone.
Odell Beckham Jr. should not have gotten the Madden 16 cover. He is too young, but also, that curse is going around, and that could hurt his performance. There were many other better players who were also older and more experienced. Corporations like young blood, though, for the sport, and this is why he got it.
As a rookie wide receiver for the NY Giants Odell Beckham Jr. made some spectacularly athletic catches last season. These catches were the talk of social media and TV. The Madden series of games is all about these kinds of flashy plays. Let's hope for his sake, Beckham Jr. does not suffer from the, "Madden Curse."
There seems to be some sort of self-annointed entitlement to name and choose who gets to be on video game covers. The reality is the maker of the games makes this decision, usually based on who will bring the greatest amount of sales. There is no controversy when a person's favorite does not get picked.
