13. Olamide Zaccheaus

We don't quite know what the future holds for the former Atlanta Falcons wide receiver who was picked up by the same team who picked up Marcus Mariota—the Philadelphia Eagles.

What we do know is that Zaccheaus has been a good player for the Falcons since he was picked up as an undrafted free agent.

In 2022, the aforementioned Marcus Mariota and he had great chemistry but when Desmond Ridder took over at quarterback, his production dropped off. It would have been nice to see what Ridder and OZ could have done with a full offseason of work together.
