Charleston Rambo was a walking highlight reel at Oklahoma before transferring to Miami last season. Rambo was a solid contributor at Oklahoma, but he really broke through in his lone season with the Hurricanes. In 2021, Rambo topped 1,000 yards with seven touchdowns in a more established role.

Although he is not an absurd athlete or vertical spacer, Rambo does a lot of things well for a player that is projected to go so late in the draft. He does a great job of getting separation and playing on the perimeter with a good understanding of the boundaries.

He can blow by defenders on occasion while doing a decent job of challenging at the catch point when he cannot get free. Miami used him a lot in the screen game and let his natural talent create yards after the catch.

It is a bit of a stretch to think Rambo will be a starting wide receiver in the NFL any time soon, but his talent suggests that he can be a third option right away with a role that can stick in the NFL for a long time.

Finding a player that can mix in for a bit in 2022 and then take on a larger role in 2023 is where Rambo projects for me. That relates quite a bit to K.J. Osborn, another Miami transfer that went on Day 3 of the draft and broke out in his second NFL season.
