Jordan Addison may have underwhelmed at times during his lone season for USC after transferring from Pittsburgh. However, his 2022 performance has not dampened projections for Addison’s stock in the 2023 NFL Draft.

NFL.com analyst Daniel Jeremiah dropped his 2.0 mock draft on Tuesday with the Super Bowl in the rearview mirror and the NFL Combine still to come. In the end, Jeremiah has Addison just outside the top 10 picks, but Addison is still the top WR and top player out of the Pac-12 to come off the board.

Jeremiah is currently projecting Addison to be selected by the Houston Texans with the No. 12 overall pick. That would be an interesting projection with Addison joining Alabama QB Bryce Young with Jeremiah projecting the Crimson Tide star off the board as the No. 2 overall pick.

In the end, Addison leads just 3 players from the Pac-12 that Jeremiah is projecting as first-round picks ahead of the combine:

  • No. 12 — Jordan Addison, WR, USC — Houston Texans
  • No. 14 — Christian Gonzalez, CB, Oregon — New England Patriots
  • No. 15 — Dalton Kincaid, TE, Utah — Green Bay Packers

We’ll see if any player out of the conference can improve their stock at the combine and slide up into the first round moving forward.
