Strong Points

Very strong. Can 2-gap an offensive lineman. Handles double teams well. Plays bigger than size. Makes the plays he should make. Can get a push and be disruptive in the run game. Adequate bull pass rusher. Ran much faster than anticipated in Indy.

Weak Points

Both on tape and at the Combine, he looks and tests out as an average athlete. More a reactor than an anticipator. Just average size to play the nose. Keeps his head down too often and loses sight of ball. Not a natural bender, can get tall and then doesn't keep balance. Plays in spurts.

The Way We See It

At the Senior Bowl, he was more consistent and looked like a better player than he did on tape. Played on the nose at Auburn and might not be quick enough or athletic enough to play anything but the nose. That said, I'm sure he will practice some at other D-Line positions. Adams has talent and, if he plays to his talent level, he can be a starter in the league on the nose. He is strong and powerful and plays bigger than he measures. Has the frame to carry 315 without a problem. The right coach will make a difference with him. Right now, I see him as strictly a two-down player. Has to improve his pass rush in order to play more. Senior Bowl and Combine improved his stock a little.
