Manufactured touches in pass game (jet motion flat, screens, backfield swings). He was used more on the boundary under Lincoln Riley at USC in 2022 after primarily playing slot receiver for Kenny Pickett in Pittsburgh in 2021. Addison is a nuanced route runner who is smart in space, which reminds me slightly of Elijah Moore. Possesses great release packages and excels at creating separation. Ball skills are NFL ready. He totaled 159 receptions for 2,468 yards and 25 touchdowns during his final two seasons in college. My only negative is size, but his durability is not a concern. He could be a WR1 for a team in the NFL, but would preferably be a very good WR2. An all-around gamer and my top wideout in the class.

Addison could fit into the Jets’ plans, especially if they were unable to acquire an Odell Beckham Jr., who they briefly met with at the league meeting in Arizona. He would allow Garrett Wilson and Allen Lazard to play on  the boundary (and Corey Davis if he is on the team), while he can play the slot with Hardman rotating in as your fourth. I exaggerate that this wide receiver room would make Aaron Rodgers a 6,000 yard passer, but you can’t help but think this would be one of his best supporting casts in recent years (let’s not forget his Super Bowl group). The Jets would likely have to take him at 13, unless they feel like they could trade down a couple spots and still land him. You can point to other position groups that are of bigger need, but Joe Douglas said “the more weapons the better”, so the former Biletnikoff award winner is my “outside the box” pick for New York on night one of the draft.
