This is the gem of the draft.

The Cleveland Browns and Vanderbilt defensive lineman Day Odeyingbo are a match made  in heaven as the 2021 NFL Draft approaches rapidly. Listed at 6-foot-6 and 276 pounds, Odeyingbo has massive 36-inch arms as well, and has the versatility to play along the entirety of the defensive line.

With the Commodores, Odeyingbo would routinely lineup anywhere from the one-technique overtop of the center all the way out to the seven alignment. As mentioned previously, versatility has become the name of the game for the Browns and Woods’ defense. Odeyingbo fits the bill, and has the production to match as well.

Jordan Reid of The Draft Network gives his remarks on the Vanderbilt defensive force:

"“His combination of size, versatility, length, and constant effort have scouts highly intrigued with the raw defender. Already accepting his invitation to the Reese’s Senior Bowl in January, the stock of Odeyingbo is something to monitor as we continue through the pre-draft process and into April.”"

Over the past two seasons, in 20 games total, Odeyingbo has racked up seven sacks and a whopping 20 tackles behind the line of scrimmage.

As the Browns run a variety of defensive looks up front, adding Odeyingbo to the roster would give Woods yet another chess piece to toy around with in 2021 and beyond.
