3. Ja'Lynn Polk, Washington, 2024 NFL Draft Prospect

Everyone talks about Rome Odunze as the best wide receiver prospect coming out of Washington, but the Huskies might very well have a pair of first-round talents on their hands. Ja'Lynn Polk is "the other guy" that you'd be remiss to forget about.

The 6-foot-2 Polk is a smooth operator. He runs some clean, crisp routes and is very fluid in doing so. His ability to sell certain routes is impeccable at times. It's really a thing of beauty to watch. Imagining his route-running and creativity alongside Mahomes throwing him the football could equal some magical moments for the Chiefs offense.

One thing Chiefs fans will love to hear is that Polk also has some sticky hands. When he is able to get his hands on the football, he doesn't often drop it. It's as good as caught, so long as he touches it. That can also be said for contested catches or when having to make a grab through contact. Polk can do it, and he does it well.

In his final season with the Huskies, Polk caught 69 passes for 1,159 yards and nine scores.
