Jordan Addison Bio

Jordan Addison played high school football at Tuscarora High School in Frederick, Maryland. He committed to play college football at Pittsburgh University in 2020, and made an immediate impact as a true freshman. He became the team's leader in receptions (60), receiving yards (666) and receiving touchdowns (4). The next season, Addison took his game to another level. He went for 100 receptions, 1,593 receiving yards, and 17 touchdowns en route to winning the Biletnikoff Award.

Kenny Pickett, who facilitated Addison's breakout season, left for the NFL Draft following that 2021 season. Addison departed to play for USC for his junior season and with another stud quarterback: Caleb Williams. Addison dealt with  injuries, but finished as the team leader in receptions (59), receiving yards (875), and touchdowns (8) in 11 games. A year after being named First-team All-ACC, Addison was named First-team All-Pac-12. He declared for the NFL Draft after one season at USC.

Addison’s workout metrics do not jump off the page. He posted a 19th-percentile Speed Score, with a 4.49 (70th-percentile) 40-yard dash and measuring 5-11 and 173-pounds. His Burst Score is 37th-percentile; however, his pedigree as a route-runner and Biletnikoff Award winner kept him high on draft boards. The Minnesota Vikings selected Addison in the first round of the 2023 NFL Draft.

Entering the 2023 season as a rookie, Addison will be playing next to All-Pro Justin Jefferson in a Vikings offense with plenty of targets to go around. Despite being the fourth receiver taken in the 2023 draft, Addison has the clearest path to touches in a pass-heavy offense in Minnesota. He will contend to finish as the top rookie receiver and will be an integral part of the Vikings pass offenses for the foreseeable future.
