Buffalo Bills Draft: 4 can’t-miss skill players to trade up for
By Ryan Heckman
Skill players the Buffalo Bills should trade up for: Jordan Addison, WR, USC
Speaking of great route runners, Jordan Addison fits that profile too. He’s a little smaller than Smith-Njigba, and also a bit faster in terms of straight-line speed. Addison has been compared to the likes of Tyler Lockett, and if the Bills could get their hands on a player like that, then they should seriously consider it.
Addison transferred from Pittsburgh to USC for last season, and his numbers dropped quite a bit. But, his skillset is still what’s going to see him drafted in the first round. The Bills likely wouldn’t have to move up as high for Addison as they would for Smith-Njigba, at least according to the general consensus.
Addison would give Josh Allen someone who runs solid routes at every level, but is also sneaky enough to slide past coverage on the outside and wind up as a big play threat. He’s very good in terms of getting off the line quickly. He has that burst you look for in a receiver when playing on crucial downs, needing to move the sticks.
Over the past two seasons, Addison has accumulated over 2,400 receiving yards and 25 touchdowns.
