Odell Beckham Jr has named the Arizona Cardinals’ Patrick Peterson as the NFL’s best cornerback.
The New York Giants star was asked which defensive player gave wide receivers the most trouble when speaking at aSky Sports' Facebook Live event alongside cricketer Eoin Morgan and rugby player Jonathan Joseph.
Beckham Jr stopped short of naming his rival Josh Norman, with whom he shared an ugly spat during the Carolina Panthers' win against the Giants last season, and instead suggested a player who he hasn't yet faced.
"I think the best cornerback in the league, I haven't got the experience of playing against - Patrick Peterson," Beckham Jr said.
"By far one of the best in the game, hands down. He's going to follow you from your house, to his house, to the side-lines, to the cricket field!
"I remember in my rookie year, we [played against] him in Week 2 but I was injured. I just could never get back on the field, I was trying to rush back to play him because this is the man. You obviously always want to go against the best, always.
"In my eyes, he's the best corner in the league."
Peterson has spent all five seasons of his NFL career with the Cardinals and has been voted into the Pro Bowl each time. In 2015, while marking the opposition's No 1 receiver in almost every snap, he allowed just two touchdowns.
