Baltimore Ravens Mock Draft: Lamar Jackson traded in shocking move
By Ryan Heckman
With their second pick in the first round at no. 22, Baltimore ends up going with one of the two rumored wide receivers they had been linked to just days ago. USC product Jordan Addison is a top-3 receiver in this class, and he joins a corps featuring the newly-signed Odell Beckham, who will be an excellent guy for Addison to learn from.
Addison is known as one of the better, more fluid route runners in this class. He's been compared to NFL veteran Tyler Lockett by some major outlets, and if the Ravens are getting that type of talent, then Addison will make an impact from Day 1.
Addison stands 5-foot-11, weighing 173 pounds, so he is a tad bit lighter. But, he's still unafraid to work over the middle of the field if need be. In fact, he makes it look easy getting open between the hashes.
Last year with USC, Addison's production dropped quite a bit. But, from what we saw out of him at Pittsburgh and how he shows up on tape, regardless, he's a surefire first-round pick. Now, the Ravens' wide receiving room is led by Beckham, Addison, Rashod Bateman and Nelson Agholor. That's a pretty fair top four, well-rounded with a couple of veterans along with two young guys.
