Rome Udunze, WR, Washington

The Eagles brass loves to see their team air it out. They'd much rather do that than win on the ground, so expect there to be an emphasis placed on finding targets for Jalen Hurts. Rome Udunze is six-foot-three and tips the scales at 201 pounds. He does just about everything well, but there are questions about whether or not he can separate from NFL cornerbacks.

Ja'Tavion Sanders, TE, Texas

It seems doubtful that Philly would invest significant draft capital into the tight end position seeing as how Dallas Goedert is on the squad and Philly just inked Albert Okwuegbunam to a one-year extension. We can dream though.

There's no way the Birds would land Brock Bowers out of Georgia. We can hang that up. Ja'Tavion Sanders in Midnight Green is probably a fantasy too, but just for kicks, we're going to throw him on our list anyway.

Keep an eye on Ben Sinnott (Kansas State), Theo Johnson (Penn State), and Jaheim Bell (Florida State). All would make exceptional consolation prizes.

Brian Thomas Jr., WR, LSU

Brian Thomas is fun to watch. He's also a potential mismatch at the professional level. He's six-foot-four. He weighs 205 pounds, and he's probably a potential 4.4-second 40-yard dash guy.

According to the homies at Walter Football, "In terms of size, speed, athleticism, and upside, Thomas is probably second only to Marvin Harrison Jr. among the wide receiver prospects for the 2024 NFL Draft.". In 2023, during his final collegiate season at LSU, he racked up 68 catches for 1,177 yards and 17 touchdowns.
