Dynasty Fantasy Football Draft Rankings

Rome Odunze (WR – Washington): ECR 6 Overall | WR3

Odunze makes special plays look easy so often that you have to remind yourself of the difficulties of some of the plays. He adjusted to an underthrown ball against Cal while splitting two incoming defenders like it was just another pitch and catch crosser. His film is littered with back-shoulder supremes and basket catches. He has special start/stop ability at his size, which helps him earn quick separation with ease. Odunze doesn’t have the most fluid hips, but he has extremely quick feet, which do the heavy lifting when he needs to decelerate. His skillset accesses another level when we discuss his body control and ball tracking. Odunze has an enormous catch radius with the ability to high point as well as easily adjust to poorly thrown balls behind him. There are numerous fade routes where he had to adjust to the ball in the air, and he did so marvelously without losing speed using his effortless change of direction. Odunze’s run after the catch skills are a treat as he gets up to top speed QUICKLY. He also shows off his power from time to time, weaving through the interior with the vision and physical presence of a running back. In 2023, he was tied for 25th in missed tackles forced tied with Malachi Corley. Odunze should be the immediate WR1 for whatever offense he lands with. He has alpha upside with the ability to threaten a defense at all three levels.

Malik Nabers (WR – LSU): ECR 4 Overall | WR2

It’s not the LSU jersey. I swear. As soon as I turned on the film, I felt like I was watching Chase as a prospect all over again. Nabers plays with a special blend of power, twitch, and blinding speed. His imposing physical strength at 6’0″ reminds me the most of Chase. Nabers can break tackles and churn out YAC. He can win versus zone as he has strong pacing in his routes and sits down in the soft spots. Nabers can also hand fight, get physical, and defeat press and man coverage. Last year, he was the second-highest graded wide receiver per PFF against man while also ranking 20th in yards per route run against the coverage type (min 25 man coverage targets). Nabers can go toe to toe with Marvin Harrison Jr. for the title of “THE best route runner” in this class. He weaves together a ton of high-end nuance in his routes, from dropping his head to sell a vertical push, varying the tempo in his routes, and the raw physical power of his hand fighting and at the catch point. He can snap off a double move in a heartbeat. Against Arkansas, he tossed the corner a double move, and when the defensive back didn’t bite, Nabers just ran past him anyway with his blinding speed. Nabers snatches targets with arrogant hands away from his body. He’s a beast at the catch point and adjusts easily to lowly thrown balls. Nabers had only a 5.3% drop rate in each of the past two seasons.

Marvin Harrison Jr. (WR – Ohio State): ECR 2 Overall | WR1

Harrison Jr. has the entire tool belt to pull contraptions from to make corners’ lives a living hell on the football field. He has superb route nuance and sneaky afterburners (legit 4.4 speed). If a corner plays off him, he can quickly drop it into fourth and beat them deep or run away from them on a drag route. His route tree isn’t missing any branches. Harrison Jr. has plenty of field stretching reps where he exhibits strong ball tracking. He made a few basket catches at Ohio State that’ll leave your jaw on the floor. He has the skill set to be an elite WR in the NFL for a long time. He can threaten a defense at every level. Harrison can get open off the line with any combination of speed, physicality, or footwork. Harrison Jr. is strong at the catch point with high point skills to be a yearly 8-10 touchdown guy. The only small knock on Harrison’s game is that he isn’t a huge YAC threat. He amassed only 14 missed tackles at Ohio State and 5.1 yards after the catch per reception. This depressing number can partially be attributed to quarterback play in 2023, which, funny enough, is the best season he had in YAC per reception (6.4). He has the size and speed to produce some YAC, but it likely will never be the biggest selling point of his skillset.
