Jordan Addison Scouting Report
Per NFL Draft Buzz, Addison has the following strengths and weaknesses:
- Has elite athletic ability and deep speed, outstanding cutting ability, and good hands and toughness
- Manages to find holes in coverage and has exceptional hands with equally impressive body control
- Has the strong hands any NFL wide receiver coach and quarterback would covet. Tracks the deep ball over either shoulder and brings in passes fluidly without breaking stride downfield.
- A slippery runner with elusive footwork. Has little to no wasted movements between the reception and burst upfield.
- Has never really faced press man coverage – so it is yet to be determined how he would hold up against pro-level defenders – may end up getting pushed around
- Does not always use his hands to secure deep throws, allowing the ball into his pads and chest
- Has too many concentration drops – will need to become more consistent

Would Jordan Addison Fit on the Packers?
There is some irony in the fact that the year that Aaron Rodgers might leave, GM Brian Gutekunst would draft a first-round wide receiver. However, this year it is a real possibility. The Packers are building a young wide receiver room but it does need one more piece at least. Romeo Doubs and Christian Watson have shown they can play but another downfield threat could open up this offense. If teams have to worry about getting beat by Watson and Addison, this offense could be lethal.
Check Out Another Prospect That Could Fit For the Packers
The issue with any wide receiver prospect is whether they will be there when the pick happens. Last season saw multiple teams trade up for wide receivers leaving the Packers to wait until the second round for Watson. (In hindsight, Packers fans are not mad about this) Regardless of who is playing quarterback, Doubs, Watson, and Addison would be a great receiving corps now and into the future.
