5 NFL Draft Prospects ESPN is linking to Baltimore Ravens
3. Is Jordan Addison the best wide receiver in the 2023 NFL draft?
The third most likely option for the Baltimore Ravens in the 2023 NFL draft is Jordan Addison from Pitt and USC. There is a real chance that Addison is the best wide receiver in the draft, and he may end up being the first one taken. At the same, he is a slender wide receiver, and he could fall.
Also, the Baltimore Ravens could still be the team that takes a wide receiver first. What makes Addison such an interesting prospect is that despite his slender frame he has a complete and well-rounded game.
At Pitt, he was winning jump balls in the air down the field. Addison was getting seperation deep and making plays. At USC, they used him closer to the line. He was working out of the slot more and was working with the ball in his hands more, creating after the catch.
So, what you saw is someone who now plays inside and outside. He has the deep game ability and can make you miss behind the line of scrimmage. If he was an inch taller, and 15 pounds heavier, there would be no debate when he gets drafted.
