Selection Comment - Pick #9

Return to Mock Draft

Rome Odunze



After the inevitable selection of Caleb Williams at #1, the Bears provide their new QB with more offensive firepower. Washington's Rome Odunze joins Keenan Allen and D.J. Moore to form one of the best receiving corps in the league. The board has fallen perfectly for Chicago; Odunze would have been the #1 receiver in most other years. The offense should be dynamic in 2024; Caleb Williams should, as long as he stays healthy, be the first 4000-yard passer in team history.

Odunze is a playmaker with safe hands and the ability to separate smoothly. Odunze's elite body control allows him to win contested catches (just ask Michael Penix Jr.). At 6-3 and 212 lbs, and with noticeable strength, Odunze will be a nightmare for opposing CBs to defend. Even though he's still only 21. Odunze has 4-years of college experience, 2 of which with over 1000 receiving yards. The former Huskie may lack elite speed, but that should not detract from what could be an all-pro career. Grade: A+
