Pickens' catch is similar to a reception made by the current free agent and former Cleveland Browns wide receiver, the New York Giants drafted Odell Beckham Jr. Beckham in the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft.
While playing against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 12 of his rookie season, Beckham caught a 43-yard one-handed touchdown reception from QB Eli Manning that was dubbed the "catch of the year." '
It was one of the best catches ever,' said American Broadcaster Cris Collingsworth, as did NBA's LeBron James and many others.
