Rome Odunze, WR, Washington

Rome Odunze is one of my favorite prospects in this upcoming draft and is likely the best fit for the Bills. In a draft that consists of very talented receivers, including Marvin Harrison, Jr. and Emeka Egbuka, Odunze can fly under the radar this upcoming year.

However, he possesses the ability to be a star in the NFL. Coming in at 6'3, 210 pounds, Odunze is a stellar route-runner and possesses the ability to go deep and pose himself as a consistent deep threat. In the 2022 season, he had 70 catches, 1088 yards, 7 TDs, and averaged 15.5 yards per catch. Nope, that wasn't a typo.

Odunze is a freakish athlete who has insane acceleration and smooth body movements that allows for him to lose defenders with ease. With his height advantage over shorter defenders, he has the ability to rise up and snag the ball in the air and make those jaw-dropping catches. Look for Odunze to have an even better season for the Huskies, especially with QB Michael Penix, Jr. (another first round prospect) throwing him the ball.

In an offense where the receiver room is very reliant on Stefon Diggs to produce, Odunze will be able to take the pressure off of Diggs and easily slide himself into the WR2 spot. Not only will he make an immediate impact, but he will also solidify himself as the future of the Bills' wide receiver room for years to come.
