Let’s not ignore the 4th WR taken in the 1st round, Jordan Addison, going to Minnesota.
Watching his game film, one thing became apparent to me: Caleb Williams is an awesome QB! His passes were air mailed gifts, with nice tight spirals that hit the perfect mark more often than not. That said, USC has a long tradition of good WR’s, and Addison is certainly one of them. A lot of his highlights were plays where he just flat out beat coverage, and Williams drops a 50 yard pass in Addison’s lap. You don’t see Addison with a lot of contested catches, because he tended to beat the coverage. That will probably change in the NFL, so that is a wait-and-see for him.
As for the landing spot, there’s a good and bad side to it. The good side is he will be playing opposite Justin Jefferson, so he won’t have to face top cover corners. The bad side is his QB is Kirk Cousins, a middle-ranking QB1, who ranked 7th-9th last year (over 100 points behind Mahomes and Allen, depending on QB stats used). Addison’s upside comp here is Tee Higgins.
To me, this seems too early to be drafting a WR2, but we’ll see if this pans out for Minnesota.
