Anything short of No. 1 is apparently too low for Odell Beckham Jr.
In the 2016 edition of the NFL Top 100, a ranking of the 100 best players as voted by the players themselves, OBJ was slotted 10th. That was an improvement over last year when he was ranked 22nd, but Beckham isn't even close to being satisfied.
Shortly after his ranking was announced, Beckham sounded off on Twitter:
10? Hmm. #BuckleUp

Later, Beckham posted a video of himself heading to a workout at 3 a.m. accompanied by his trainer, Jamal Liggin:
"That's not good enough, I've got to do more. Who else is out here working?," Beckham says in the video. "They don't want it like I want it. I gotta have it."
We don't have actual footage of the late night workout, but if it was anything like Beckham's other sessions with Liggin, it was enough to make an average Joe's lungs explode:
Last season, Beckham posted 96 receptions, 1,450 receiving yards and 13 touchdowns. Those are stellar numbers, but if he wants to eclipse the players who were ranked ahead of him on this year's NFL Top 100—such as Rob Gronkowski, Antonio Brown and Julio Jones—he'll have to turn it up even further.
