Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Effective in space and usually drops his hips to get leverage and sustain against shorter defenders.
  • If a scout were to draw up a starting NFL left tackle, the picture may look like a lot like Adams. His height, length and athletic build are prototypical for the position that helps protect the blind side of ultra-important starting quarterbacks.
  • Big athlete with good bulk and a filled-out frame. Stays balanced and doesn't overextend in pass protection. Stays disciplined with good bend and leverage.
  • Eases out of his stance and has a finisher's mentality. Bends his knees, has above-average mobility and keeps his base square to adjust to counters.
  • Solid positional run blocker who flashes the nasty demeanor and killer instinct scouts covet.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Isn't an elite quick-twitch blocker and his height causes him to be out-quicked. Leaks inside pressure when his technique gets sloppy.
  • Heavy-footed with limited lateral quickness. Stiff and looks like he's moving in wet cement in the open field.
