Scouting Report Home Prospect Video Prospect Bio


This is a mountain of a man that has all the physical tools needed to be an elite offensive lineman in the NFL. Adams is a 3 year starter at LT at Ohio State but probably better suited to play RT at the next level. However, he has also shown the versatility to kick inside and play guard. With his long arms and great punch he's able to keep his man at bay. He has also shown the ability to mirror the defender making it hard to even sniff the QB. Although he has the skills to ward off the defender's initial move, it's the counter move that exposes Adams. Specifically the inside spin. In addition, like most raw offensive lineman, he gets in trouble when he overextends. He has also shown poor awareness at times by not being able to identify the right defender to pick up on the blitz. Adams is a mauler in the run game and he has the nastiness needed to finish blocks. He simply overpowers smaller defenders and uses his leverage and good hand placement to seal off larger defensive ends. He has also shown the ability to get to the second level adeptly. Overall, Adams has 1st round talent however it's his late round character that may cause him to fall. If he aces the pre-draft interviews and convince he GM's that has matured and his off the field issues are behind him you may hear his name called in the 2nd round.
