WR. Washington. Rome Oduze. 3. player. 521. Oduze. . Rome Oduze.

The wide receiver Michael Penix Jr. made a living throwing to, Rome Oduze is a heck of a talent who doesn't sacrifice athleticism for size.

The Falcons could stand to add another elite wide receiver. The additions of Darnell Mooney, Rondale Moore, and Ray-Ray McCloud are great and all but passing up a top-ten talent at the position would be difficult.

It sounds like Marvin Harrison Jr. and Malik Nabers will go before Oduze. Call me crazy but I would take Oduze over Nabers and would argue that Oduze has a higher upside than Harrison Jr.

Rome Oduze would be the cherry on top of the Falcons new-look offense. Kirk Cousins would be the happiest man on earth.
