Has the feet to adjust when he anticipates what's coming. Effective trapping and bends at the knees with adequate core strength to absorb the bull rush. Can clear a path at the second level if he hits the target.
King-sized tackle with the height and size that cannot be taught. Raw power and natural strength to overwhelm defenders in tight quarters.
Lone concern is handling the superquick NFL edge rusher. Foot speed and quickness are very good, but not elite.
Has the ability to sink his hips and generate real power with strong hands. Consistently moves defenders back. Grades out extremely well in every aspect of run blocking.
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.
Needs to prove his worth in a straight-ahead running game.
Attacks when necessary, though he won't consistently dominate and can lose balance overextending.
Susceptible to speed rushers. Has only average quickness off the snap and doesn't possess the acceleration or arm length to corral defenders once they cross his face.
Loses leverage battles and plays with high pad level. Can be late off the snap.
Heavy-footed with limited lateral quickness. Stiff and looks like he's moving in wet cement in the open field.
