Giants sign 1st-round pick Beckham

East Rutherford, NJ (SportsNetwork.com) - The New York Giants locked up four more draft picks Monday, including No. 12 overall selection Odell Beckham Jr. and second-round pick Weston Richburg.

Beckham, a 5-foot-11 wide receiver from LSU, caught 57 passes for 1,117 yards and eight touchdowns as a junior this past season and also gained more than 1,500 yards returning kicks and punts.

Richburg, a center from Colorado State, was drafted No. 43. The Giants also signed linebacker Devon Kennard, a fifth-round selection out of USC, and sixth-round pick Bennett Jackson, the former Notre Dame cornerback.

Defensive tackle Jay Bromley from Syracuse, taken in the third round, is the only member of the Giants' seven-player draft class who hasn't signed.
