Draft Profile: Bio
Jordan Addison from Tuscarora High School was rated a 4-star recruit by ESPN and handed a 4-star grade by 247 Sports. Following high school, Addison opted to join Pittsburgh.

In 2020 as a freshman Addison saw action in 10 games for the Panthers as he made 60 receptions for 662 yards for an average of 11.0 yards per reception, with 4 TDs, and a QB rating when targeted of 97.0.

As a sophomore in 2021 he exploded with an incredible year while playing in 14 games and having 100 catches for 1593 yards for an average of 15.9 yards per catch, with a huge 17 TDs, and a QB rating when targeted of 136.7.

Addison entered the transfer protocol following the 2022 season after winning the Biletnikoff Award for the nation's best receiver - he ultimately after being massively in demand decided to join the USC ahead of the 2023 season.
Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Has elite athletic ability and deep speed, outstanding cutting ability, and good hands and toughness
  • Has consistently put up outstanding numbers at the college level - established himself as the top receiver in the nation
  • Often used on deep routes, getting separation down the sideline or over the middle on crossing routes by extending his arms rather than pure speed.
  • Combines speed, balance, quickness, vision, and crisp cuts to leave defensive backs and linebackers in the dust
  • Has elite change of direction can cut on a dime
  • Manages to find holes in coverage and has exceptional hands with equally impressive body control
  • Does a nice job locating and tracking deep passes and is a legitimate vertical threat. Willing to go up and attack the ball.
  • Flashes the foot quickness and toughness to handle slot duties at the next level and lines up all over the field. A threat whenever he has the ball
  • Has the strong hands any NFL wide receiver coach and quarterback would covet. Tracks the deep ball over either shoulder and brings in passes fluidly without breaking stride downfield.
  • Has a knack for getting open and is a quarterback's best friend - passers just need to toss the ball in his area and he'll come down with it.
  • A slippery runner with elusive footwork. Has little to no wasted movements between the reception and burst upfield.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Very slight receiver who will be exclusively considered a slot player
  • Has never really faced press man coverage - so it yet to be determined how he would hold up against pro level defenders
  • Very young and could do improving his route running
  • Does not always use his hands to secure deep throws, allowing the ball into his pads and chest - has had more concentration drops than you would expect for a player of his ability
Scouting Report: Summary
Jordan Addison is an outstanding NFL prospect who is a prototypical slot player with the deep speed coaches drool over. He has a chance this year to become to establish himself as a top ten pick if he continues to play at the level he displayed as a sophomore at Pittsburgh. He however does have limitations and will never be considered a complete wide receiver who is able to play outside due to his small frame.
