The NFL Draft in 2024 appears set at the very top even a year out. But the rest of the first round is sure to feature a few surprises. Some players are easier to peg as future first-rounders than others, and Pro Football Focus thinks Washington’s Rome Odunze looks like one of them.

The 6-foot-3 received from Las Vegas enters 2023 with 122 career receptions for 1,632 yards and 11 touchdowns. His third season on Montlake was a breakout campaign that featured 1,145 yards and seven scores. He led the Pac-12 in yardage and scored the third-most touchdowns.

He certainly had an opportunity to jump to the NFL following the 2022 season, but elected to run it back alongside quarterback Michael Penix and wideout Jalen McMillan as UW hopes for a title charge. Repeating his 2022 success could see Odunze soar up toward the top of draft boards.

Here’s what PFF’s Cody Milardo wrote on Odunze:

Each year, the NFL draft is littered with exciting receiver prospects, and 2024 is shaping up to be no exception. At 6-foot-3 and 200 pounds, Odunze is a big-bodied receiver with sneaky athleticism, as he racked up 343 yards after the catch and forced 10 missed tackles last season, both ranking within the top 25 among all Power Five receivers. Odunze also earned a career-best 79.1 overall grade last year and amassed 605 yards against single coverage, trailing only consensus top 10 pick Marvin Harrison Jr. With another strong season, Odunze could hear his name called among the top 32 picks in 2024.
