First Round wide receivers the Ravens are targeting in 2023 NFL Draft: Jordan Addison, USC

The first wide receiver Baltimore is looking at drafting at pick no. 22 is USC standout, and former PIttsburgh Panther, Jordan Addison. At 5-foot-11, Addison possesses average size but has the flexibility of lining up both inside and outside.

A great pro comparison that's been thrown around by some experts, for Addison, is Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Tyler Lockett. If the Ravens are getting someone along those lines, to go with Beckham, Rashod Bateman and Nelson Agholor, I'm certain Baltimore fans would be thrilled.

Addison could drop to Baltimore mainly because his production wasn't as good in 2022 as it was in 2021. After transferring from Pittsburgh, his receptions, yardage and touchdowns were all nearly cut in half.

Still, he's a guy who can work all three areas of the field and runs excellent routes. His footwork is superb, allowing him to separate well and get open, especially in the middle of the field. He's not afraid to go across, inside the numbers and open up. If Addison is there at no. 22, expect the Ravens to pull the trugger, unless this next guy is on the board, that is.
