Scouting Report: Strengths
  • He’s excellent downfield, accelerating to top speed quickly and stacking on top of cornerbacks. Odunze has excellent body control, contorting to make difficult catches and working well on back-shoulder throws.
  • When used downfield, Odunze shows the ball-tracking skills and hand-eye coordination to make the adjustment on underthrown balls and back-shoulder throws.
  • He transitions quickly from receiver to runner, and he has enough speed to threaten the seam.
  • Has elite balance tight-roping the sideline and in-and-out of his breaks, showing excellent start-stop ability and burst.
  • An elusive and creative runner in space, he has the lateral agility and stop-start ability to make tacklers swing and miss. He shows good hands and coordination as an underneath catch-and-run target.
  • He’s a fluid athlete with excellent short-area quickness; he should be able to create separation, and he has the straight-line speed to threaten down the seam.
  • Odunze has a tapered build and strong hands, ripping the ball back with ease when defensive backs manage to get a hold of it.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Odunze seems comfortable in traffic to the point where Odunze doesn’t make the effort to create separation.
  • Does not always use his hands to secure deep throws, allowing the ball into his pads and chest.
  • Odunze lacks the twitch to create consistent separation, and despite his size and ability to track the ball downfield, he isn’t great on contested catches.
