The NY Jets are doing their homework on many of the top prospects in the 2024 NFL Draft, and that clearly extends to the most notable wide receiver prospects.

Bleacher Report's Jordan Schultz reported on Tuesday that the Jets are set to meet with Washington wide receiver Rome Odunze as part of an official top-30 visit on Wednesday.

Odunze is widely seen as one of the best prospects at any position in this year's draft class, with many projecting him to be a likely top-10 pick in the 2024 draft. The Jets, who own the No. 10 overall pick, could be looking to target him in the first round.

Odunze is one of three consensus wide receiver prospects who are expected to be among the top-10 picks in this year's draft along with Ohio State's Marvin Harrison Jr. and LSU's Malik Nabers.

At 21 years old, the consensus 2023 All-American would be a perfect fit in the Jets' offense, giving Aaron Rodgers another weapon to throw to. The Jets seem to agree.

Rome Odunze should be a top target for the NY Jets in the 2024 draft

Odunze is one of the most prolific wide receivers in Washington history, having set numerous school records over the last two years. The Las Vegas native is second all-time in school history in total receiving yards despite only playing a little over two seasons with the Huskies.

Odunze's 1,640 yards in 2023 set a new school record for the most receiving yards in a single season. His performance helped lead Washington to the National Championship Game where they fell short against Michigan.

At 6-foot-3, 212 pounds, Odunze has arguably the best ball skills of any receiver in this class. His tape is littered with highlight-reel contested catches where he shows off his absurd body control and physicality.

Unlike most so-called "jump-ball receivers," Odunze is a fantastic athlete, registering an incredible 9.91 RAS (Relative Athletic Score) at the NFL Combine. That score ranks 29th out of a whopping 3,090 receivers to record a score score since 1987.

Odunze has all the traits to be an elite WR1 at the next level. The Jets already signed former Los Angeles Chargers wideout Mike Williams in free agency, but the team could still use another playmaker in their receiving corps, especially since Williams isn't exactly a long-term option.

Odunze could slot in alongside Garrett Wilson and Williams to form one of the best wide receiver trios in the NFL. That's one way to make Aaron Rodgers' life easier next season.
