Strengths
good speed and great athleticism; physical player who wraps up and punishes runners; ability to cover a deep half or deep third; excellent instincts when playing downhill.
Weaknesses
Doesn't have sideline to sideline range; will be limited to an in the box or half deep safety role; struggles staying with quicker receivers in man coverage
Overall Analysis
Adams is a physical and athletic player that looks like a classic strong safety. He has the ability to play deep, but not to cover the entire field. He is proficient at making plays in the backfield and is at home playing the run as he is the pass. He should be an immediate impact player and has Pro-Bowl potential. He should be the first safety, if not defensive back, selected.
