The Bears took Rome Odunze with the 9th pick in this year's NFL draft and it looks like they have some big plans for the future star.

Odunze will of course be a big part of the Bears offense next season but it seems like the Bears might be using him as a punt returner as well.
There is another aspect of Odunze's game that could also help the Bears: his punt return ability, which he showcased briefly during his time at Washington.

Odunze did return some punts during is time at Washington University which is why this might be an avenue the Bears explore this season.
«Rome is an every-down player,» Bears special teams coordinator Richard Hightower said. «Rome's a first-down player, a second-down player, a third-down player and a fourth-down player. He had three returns on the books and one of those three returns was a house call.»
