Jordan Addison Dynasty Rookie Profile

High School

Jordan Addison attended Tuscarora High School in Maryland, where he played wide receiver among other positions. When he finished his high school career, Addison committed to play college football at the University of Pittsburgh, after also receiving offers from Maryland and Kent State. He was a four-star recruit according to 247 Sports.


As soon as Jordan Addison stepped on the field as a true freshman he was productive. He started in eight games and played in 10 total games as a freshman in 2020 for Pitt, in a season where he caught 60 passes for 666 yards on 4 touchdowns.

He took a massive leap in year two, as he started all 14 games that Pittsburgh University played in, and he amassed 100 catches, 1,593 receiving yards, and 17 receiving touchdowns. He added one rushing touchdown. His outstanding sophomore season earned him All-American honors and he also won the Fred Biletnikoff Award for being the best wide receiver in the country in 2021.

Despite a great second season at Pitt in 2021, Jordan Addison decided to transfer to the University of Southern California (USC) before the 2022 college season. At USC, Addison “only” played in 11 games, as he sustained an ankle injury during the college season. In those 11 games, Addison had 59 catches for 875 receiving yards and 8 touchdowns.


After a very good college career, Jordan Addison is entering the 2023 NFL draft. In recent mock drafts, Addison appears to be a player who is expected to come off the board in the second half of the first round at the 2023 NFL draft, or at worst, at the very top of the second round.

When you look at wide receivers, one of the top-selling points is the route-running skills and the separation that the WR can create. In these two areas, Jordan Addison is very good. Addison lined up both outside and in the slot in college and was very productive in both roles. However, Addison is not a completely flawless route-runner, as he struggles to beat press coverage.

The reason for that, and probably also the reason he is not a top-end draft prospect in the 2023 NFL draft, can be found in his size. At the NFL combine, Addison measured in at 5 ft 11 inches and weighed 173 lbs. That is quite a small and slender frame for an NFL wide receiver. In recent years, we have seen multiple wide receivers close to the same size and stature as Addison succeed in the NFL, but questions still remain about how well his size is going to translate.

Jordan Addison is likely best suited as the wide receiver #2 on a team, so someone else is taking the primary attention of defenses, which would let Addison focus on just beating single-coverage.
