I think that I would take Beckham.
Paul Richardson--In his last 25 college games,Richardson he had 122 receptions for 1898 yards
He averaged 15.56 a reception and 75.92 yards a game.
Odell Beckham Jr.--In his last 26 college games, Beckham he had 102 receptions for 1865 yards.
He averaged 18.28 a reception and 71.73 yards a game.
The overall stats are very similar. Beckham has a better average per catch, but Richardson has more catches and more yards.
But, Beckham brings more to the table. Beckham is also a very good return man. He returns both punts and kick offs.
Richardson has not demonstrated that he has any return skills. We need a player with good return skills.
Beckham also played against tougher competition.
I would take Beckham before Richardson.
