USC Wide Receiver Addison Declares for NFL Draft

One of college football's most electric playmakers is ready to take his talents to the pros. Former Pitt Panther and USC Trojan wide receiver Jordan Addison has officially declared for the 2023 NFL Draft. Addison won the Fred Biletnikoff Award in 2021, college football's highest honor for a wide receiver. He compiled 100 catches for 1593 yards and 17 touchdowns for Pitt in a spectacular sophomore season. He transfered to USC for the 2022 season, where he totalled 875 receiving yards and eight touchdowns in 11 appearances.

A dynamic if somewhat slight pass catcher, Addison projects as a first-round pick on several draft boards and should fit in well in an NFL that is skewing smaller and lighter at the position every year. His ability to generate yards after catch should fit in well for any team looking for a complementary, high-volume target in the middle of the first round.
