1. Washington WR Rome Odunze

Another receiver option for the Giants? Yup, that'd be Washington's Rome Odunze, who just helped the Huskies go 14-1 this season. UW made it all the way to the National Championship Game, but the Pac-12 side suffered a rough loss to Jim Harbaugh and Michigan with the title on the line. Despite that, no one can deny that Odunze is one of the top WRs for this class.

On the year, Odunze and quarterback Michael Penix Jr. (a QB the Giants will have eyes on this offseason too) were one of the best receiver/quarterback duos in the nation. Odunze hauled in 92 balls for 1,640 yards and 13 touchdowns. In a new 2024 NFL Mock Draft, The Athletic's Dane Brugler has Odunze going to NY and becoming the WR1 this team has been missing for a long time:

"With his size/speed profile and ability to play through contact, Odunze is a quarterback-friendly target with the tools to be a legitimate No. 1 option. The Giants haven’t had a 1,000-yard receiver since 2018, but Odunze might change that as a rookie."

After going 6-11 this past season, the Giants obviously have a ton of needs to try and turn things around. Some help is needed for the offensive line, on the edge in terms of pass-rushers and more. However, Daniels, Nabers and Odunze are the three guys we're seeing the most. If Schoen goes with any of these guys, it's safe to say people will be quite happy with the decision.
