The Bucs could plan ahead by trading up for Rome Odunze

Finally, if the Bucs wanted to make an even louder splash, they could go up into the top 10 and grab Washington wide receiver Rome Odunze. This would also give the Bucs another top-tier pass catcher, but it would signal more toward what the team will do in 2025, if nothing else.

Godwin is a free agent after this year, and if the Bucs were to draft Odunze, there is no chance Godwin returns next year, especially after just paying Evans again.

Odunze would be the perfect Godwin replacement, too, as he's a phenomenal route runner and has as dependable of hands as you can find in this draft class. His production is off the charts, coming from the high-flying Washington offense. Last season, Odunze caught 92 passes for 1,640 yards and 13 scores.

At 6-foot-3, 212 pounds, Odunze runs a 4.45 and adds a 39-inch vertical leap. His catch radius is enormous, and his body control gives him a rare ability to contort and bend wherever needed in order to make the grab. Odunze immediately makes this Bucs offense as terrifying as it's been in recent years.
