According to ESPN’s Seattle Seahawks reporter Brady Henderson, he spoke to Washington WR Rome Odunze who will meet an array of teams, including the Cardinals.

“Washington WR Rome Odunze, projected to be drafted early in the first round, tells me he has upcoming meetings with the Cardinals, Jets and Bears at those teams’ facilities,” Henderson said.

For four years (2020-23), Odunze played 40 games with the University of Washington. Overall, the Las Vegas native collected 3,272 yards from 214 receptions and scored 14 touchdowns.

Last season, his senior year performance put football fans on notice with 92 receptions, 1,640 receiving yards and 13 touchdowns, all career highs in college.

As the draft edges close, Cardinals general manager Monti Ossenfort has to make a crucial decision with the fourth-overall pick – stand pat and use the pick or trade down for multiple assets.

Based on recent reports, Arizona could very well get a haul in a potential deal as “multiple” teams are reportedly keeping an eye on the selection.

If Ossenfort affirms they are choosing fourth, Odunze, Harrison Jr. and Nabers are to be the top receivers in the draft.

Currently, Chris Moore, Zach Pascal, Michael Wilson, Greg Dortch, Dan Chisena, Jeff Smith, Andre Baccellia, Kaden Davis and Daniel Arias sum up the Cardinals’ receiver room.

Arizona possesses six picks through the first three rounds and 11 overall in this year’s draft.

The 2024 NFL Draft starts on April 25, with it lasting until the 27th.
