USC Football WR Jordan Addison won the Biletnikoff last year, and was just placed on the 2022 Biletnikoff Award Preseason Watch List for this year. He was placed on the Watch List for good reason, as he's poised to make another Biletnikoff run in 2022.
For starters, this is a receiver coming off of a 100 catch/1,593 yard/17 TD season. Everyone knows the type of receiver he is, and he is by no means set to slow down at all. Now, he upgrades from having Pat Narduzzi as his head coach to the consensus best offensive coach in American in Lincoln Riley.
A coach who runs such a perfect spread that NFL teams wanted him as their head coach when he was in just his mid-30's. And while he won't have Kenny Pickett throwing him the rock anymore, he'll still have a true elite QB in Caleb Williams slinging it to him all over the field.
Jordan Addison already has chemistry with new USC Football QB Williams, as the two grew up together.
So, Jordan Addison isn't going to have to take too many lumps as he embarks on the rest of his career with a new school. There's also going to be so many other weapons on the field that will be able to draw some attention off of him, which is key for a top tier receiver like Addison.
USC has an elite back in new Oregon transfer Travis Dye. Dye led the Pac-12 in scrimmage yards last season (1,673), as he has proven to be one of the top running backs in college football.
In addition, they are returning four starters from the No. 1-rated offensive line in college football in 2021 (PFF). And the one spot open was filled by an ACC Honorable Mention in Bobby Haskins.
That's all incredibly important, but it might be even more important that USC also brought in two other four-star transfer receivers in Mario Williams and Brenden Rice. In fact, Mario is another one of the very best receivers in the Pac-12. Another absolutely FILTHY season is undoubtedly in the cards for Addison in 2022.
He was the best receiver last year and he's in an even better situation around him this year. Be honest: If USC can develop Drake London into the best wideout in football last year while having the worst year in program history, can anyone even imagine what they're about to do for Addison with Riley in the fold?
