Rome Odunze Shares Honest Assessment On Justin Fields And Caleb Williams


It’s widely understood that the Chicago Bears are likely aiming to draft a wide receiver given the depth at that position in this year’s draft. Marvin Harrison Jr. from Ohio State is considered the top prospect, but LSU’s Malik Nabers and Washington’s Rome Odunze are also highly regarded. Some even argue that Nabers or Odunze could be on par with, or possibly even superior to, Harrison. During a recent interview on Radio Row with NBC Sports Chicago, Odunze shared his thoughts on both Justin Fields and Caleb Williams. He particularly emphasized Fields mobility and commended his ability to evade pressure and create opportunities for the Bears with his legs.

They’ve got a great quarterback in Justin Fields. I think he’s a baller. I think they’ve got some weapons. But I think they could add me, and [I could] be another asset for them.”

Rome went on to discuss his favorite aspects of Caleb Williams game.

“He’s a special player. He can deliver it inside the pocket. I even saw it firsthand, his ability to get outside the pocket and make people miss and make plays. His awareness to be able to look downfield and be able to make some of the throws he makes — man, it’s incredible to watch. He’s a special player. It would be exciting to play with him.”

Rome Odunze is a great fit no matter the quarterback.

Rome Odunze is exceptionally talented, and his perspectives on Justin Fields and Caleb Williams are fascinating. Rumors are circulating that the Bears might choose a quarterback at number 1. So if Odunze remains available at the 9th pick, it seems he could potentially team up with Caleb Williams for the Bears.

If there is value at WR when you are on the board, you should consider taking two. Poles has triple-dipped on secondary, and DT. He took four OL in his first draft. Why not stock up at a position where you are very thin? We definitely need C and DE help. I’d love another T or G. But we have a very real need at WR. Poles has thrown three trades, two draft picks, and I think 4(?) free agents at the position, But only DJ Moore ever stepped up. I get that people are maybe tired of hearing about… Read more »

I disagree with the assertion that we “only” need a solid WR2 in the draft, likely after round 1. Consider the current offensive environment in the NFL. Wide receiver has clearly displaced running back in the packing order of offensive threats. Why settle for a WR2, just because you have a WR1? Why not add another WR1? Why not three? One that is a blazing deep threat, one who is a great slot receiver, and one who does it all? Add a top flight tight end. Doing that, I believe, I’ll also raise Kmet’s value. This is not to say… Read more »

This is a deep draft for WR and Bears already have a WR1. It’s a perfect draft to get WR2 later. What is much harder to find and the Bears need is a premier Tight End.

Bears also have needs at QB, DE, 3T, C, G, S, just as much if not more than WR.

Dr Mehuls, I understand what you’re saying, but respectfully I think you’ve got it wrong. Today’s NFL is about passing the ball. Just last year, the Vikings drafted Addison in the first round and they have the best WR in the league. The Seahawks have DK and Lockett and drafted JSN. Time will tell, but I think the top 3 guys are different from every other WR in the draft by a decent margin. Sure, it’s always possible to hit on a top WR later in the draft, especially this year. The Texans did hit on Tank Dell in the… Read more »

Dr.- it’s pretty rare a rookie comes in WR1 even when your a first round high pick. Right when that rookie is showing he’s a WR1 is when Moore will be slowing down a bit and slide into that WR2 role. Which given how hard he plays that will be coming in the next few years. This will make a perfect transition for the bears to be sustainable at WR. I’m sure they take another for depth in day 2 or 3
