Cleveland Browns star Odell Beckham Jr. apparently took some QB reps while playing at LSU.

According to Jeremy Hill, OBJ played the scout team QB while on the Tigers when the team was preparing to play Johnny Manziel and the Texas A&M Aggies. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

The revelation from Hill comes after OBJ has been going viral for his absolute cannon of an arm. The man can apparently throw a football a solid country mile.

I’ve said it before, the Browns should just ride with OBJ at quarterback. I’ve seen enough out of Baker Mayfield.

We know what Mayfield is and what he isn’t, and he’s not a QB that’s going to win a Super Bowl. That means it’s time to switch OBJ from WR to QB.

Odell Beckham Jr. is a freak of nature athlete. He’s fast as hell, he’s elusive in the open field and he has a cannon for an arm.

They should seriously create a shotgun package for him to run the read option. I’m not even kidding a little bit.

Let OBJ take snaps out of the shotgun and then run RPOs and read options. The Browns suck as it is. It can’t get worse.

It’s worth a shot, right?

No matter what you think of the Browns, you have to admit OBJ is a hell of an athlete. There’s clearly no debate about that at all.
