NFL players annually rank the top 100 players in the league; they call it the #NFLTop100. This year, the top player was Cam Newton. Giants receiver and international dance sensation Odell Beckham Jr. was voted in at No. 10.
Of course, being voted as a top-10 player in America's most popular sport is a major honor, but OBJ was not satisfied.
10? Hmm. #BuckleUp— Odell Beckham Jr (@OBJ_3) July 7, 2016
"U have no idea" Beckham captioned an Instagram video of him working out at 3 a.m.

"They said top 10, 10th," Beckham said. "I say that's not good enough. I gotta do more."
Beckham was the third-ranked receiver, behind Antonio Brown and Julio Jones.
It's tough to argue with the players' opinions—they know much more than most of us do, after all. Beckham was ranked behind the best of the best, guys like J.J. Watt, Adrian Peterson, and Aaron Rodgers. Nonetheless, OBJ was surely happy to finish one spot ahead of his rival, the 11th-ranked Josh Norman.
