LSU’s Odell Beckham Jr. and Tulane’s Ryan Grant were named to the preseason Biletnikoff Award watch list, the Tallahassee Quarterback Club announced Tuesday.

Beckham caught 43 passes for a team-high 713 yards as a sophomore in 2012. He was near the top of the Southeastern Conference at 54.3 yards per game.

In all, LSU has had six players named to watch lists ahead of the 2013 season.

Tulane, meanwhile, has two players on watch lists now that Grant was named to the Biletnikoff list.

In 2012, he was first-team all-Conference USA after hauling in 76 passes for 1,149 yards and six touchdowns. In three seasons with Tulane, he averages 14.5 yards per catch and has 12 total touchdowns.

The Biletnikoff Award goes to the nation’s top collegiate receiver.
