COLLEGE FOOTBALL: NOV 27 Pitt at Syracuse

Wide receiver Jordan Addison transferred from Pitt to USC for his final collegiate season, but he wouldn’t mind making a return trip to start his professional football career.

Addison caught passes from Steelers quarterback Kenny Pickett before switching schools and he said at the Scouting Combine on Friday that he’d welcome the chance to renew his connection with Pickett. Addison had 100 catches for 1,593 yards and 17 touchdowns while catching passes from Pickett in 2021.

“Hey man, if we reunite, that’d be good,” Addison said, via Brooke Pryor of “That’d be real cool. Real easy transition. Come get me. . . . “That’ll help the transition a lot. Just having your former quarterback, you already got a relationship, No. 1, and then that trust factor. So with him, once you’re running your routes, he’s trusting you to be at a certain spot at the right time.”

The Steelers have three picks in the first two rounds and Addison is generally projected to be selected at some point in that time frame.

  1. Addison is a luxury. They need the beef. They need a 3RD WR, not overreach for a stud – Pickens & DJohnson are adequate.

  2. I think all the good players should go to the same few teams … then the NFL could match the wild success of the NBA.

  3. Would be a nice pick, but not an immediate priority. Need OL and DL first. Then ILB…..after that, we’ll get some WR.

  4. One of the last things the Steelers need in Round 1 is a small wide receiver.

  5. Gain 100lbs and become about 5 inches taller and you’d be the right fit for what the Steelers need. 14 touchdowns. That’s last in the NFL. Those wideouts really helped that offense last year…
