Range can be used to poke (outpokes everyone in lane except Caitlyn), decent spell damage for early game poke, built-in tankiness with her shield, a potentially-AoE stun that is available much more frequently than other AD carries, has initiation.

idk something like that lol

As an ADC, Annie is simply the best lane bully in the game. She's got almost as
much attack range as Caitlyn, her own stun for a blitz/leona/thresh followup,
and even with no AP, a very strong burst vs the squishy ADCs that don't rush
abyssal scepters like certain mids would vs Annie. Additionally, with the buff
to Tibbers' health, he can tank towers much longer, allowing Annie to get more
hits in. Since AD Annie is good at killing towers regardless, having her bear
eat several hits just makes it better.
Read: Backdoor like Master Yi.

The obvious drawbacks are that her abilities don't scale with her attack damage,
and that her attack speed is the slowest in the game. Recognize that these do
not make her "A bad ADC", but rather, "Weaknesses", just as Vayne's weakness is
her inferior attack range, and Miss Fortune's is a lack of escapes.

ADC Annie works best in the bot lane vs champs she can harass for free with her
autoattack. Charge stun on creeps, Q+Auto the ADC, repeat until you get a kill.
Avoid picking ADC Annie into Caitlyn, Ezreal, and Corki. Caitlyn will
hit you back when you hit her, and Ez/Corki have jumps that prevent kills, as
well as indirect long range attacks they can use to hit you back if they're
good.

AD Annie works best in the mid lane vs low range champs. Kassadin, Morgana, and
Katarina all have to eat damage every time they come to farm.

AD Annie works *better than AP Annie* in the mid lane vs champs with long range
skills that typically counter conventional Annie. Gragas, Orianna, Brand, Lux,
and Nidalee will have to spend mana to harass you at the range you harass them.
Since they all rely on skillshots to hit you, while all you have to do is click
them, you can use clever positioning and a 9/0/21+MS quint build to get free
pokes all day.

This was taken from RenamonFOXs' Annie guide here on gameFAQs. if that doesnt convince you read the rest of his/her guide its pretty good. full credit to him/her

Annie has the second longest AA range in the game next to Caitlyn.

Obviously this trait alone would make her a good ADC. Does she scale well with AD? That's the question.

well you see you go bot, buy a dorans, then say "screw it" and build ap
