Jordan Addison has the requisite athleticism for the position and will align anywhere on the field whether it's in the slot, out wide, or in tight, and be effective in any role. His route running and ability to get separation despite not being the best athlete at the position are his greatest strengths. His slighter size does hurt his long-term abilities as a No. 1 receiver unless a team uses him the way that Randall Cobb was used in that he was everywhere and was a matchup nightmare.

The Falcons would likely have to take him in the first round because he shouldn't last until their second-round pick at No. 44. He's extremely talented as a No. 2 wide receiver fit and could end up being a No. 1B for the Falcons. Dipping back into the Southern California well for a wide receiver doesn't make a ton of sense, but if he's there in the second round, he could be a dangerous fit for the Falcons and a big help for quarterback Desmond Ridder.
