Odell Beckham Jr could well become a Philadelphia Eagles player in May after the NFL Draft takes place, according to sources. 

The Eagles may well be in search of a wide-receiver come that time if they do indeed end up trading DeSean Jackson. 

Such a trade has been all but ruled out in the last two days, but Beckham could well still be brought in to complement Jackson and Chip Kelly's high powered offense. 

The former Louisiana State University wide-out would be the perfect fit Kelly's crazy schemes because of his awesome abilities after the catch. 

Jackson managed to find his form and had a career year last season, so lord only knows what the Eagles head coach could do with Beckham at his disposal. 

Charles Davis from pointed out the skills that Beckham has and he believes that most teams would have the youngster at the top of the potential pick list.

"Beckham has good speed (4.43 40-yard dash at the NFL Scouting Combine) and is very dangerous after the catch," Davis explained

"His dynamic return-game ability is an added bonus — he won the Paul Hornung Award last season as college football’s most versatile player."
