Reality has set in. The Buffalo Bills indeed traded wide receiver Stefon Diggs and, no matter how much fans try to convince themselves otherwise, this team desperately needs help at the position.

We can talk all day long about the versatility of Curtis Samuel and the potential of Khalil Shakir as a full-time starter. But, the fact of the matter is, neither of those guys are number ones -- plain and simple.

So, what do the Bills do? They have to find a replacement in the upcoming 2024 NFL Draft, and there's been growing suspicion that Buffalo is going to make a move in order to do so. What kind of move, and just how high will they go to land a Diggs replacement?

One NFL expert doesn't see a limit to how high they could move up.

The Ringer's Ben Solak seems to believe the Bills could be in on a guy like Washington's Rome Odunze:

"If any of the top three fall, and it's expected to be Rome Odunze, that wide receiver out of Washington ... he starts to get to eight, he starts to get to nine, he starts to get to 10 ... Brandon Beane's gonna be on the phone."

"If one of those top three receivers are falling, do not be surprised if the Bills make as big of a Round 1 trade as we've seen the last few years," Solak said.

Rome Odunze would help Bills fans forget about Stefon Diggs

If the Bills went up from no. 28 all the way inside the top 10 to grab Odunze, he could change everything for the Bills. Solak didn't say anything Bills fans didn't already know. The Bills offense has been volatile. It has been inconsistent.

"The thing about Rome is that he's steady. He's reliable," Solak went on.

Buffalo needs a receiver like Odunze, who is going to give you the same effort on every single play. He's going to be a team-first guy, but is also capable of being your WR1.

With Diggs, we knew when he was unhappy. We saw it. The character and attitude were all over the place with him. Odunze brings a steadiness and professionalism about him that we didn't necessarily see from Diggs on a consistent basis.

The 6-foot-3 standout wide receiver from Washington posted a line of 92 receptions, 1,640 yards (17.8 average) and 13 touchdowns last season.
