Plays with great vision and awareness. Loves to work to the second level and wants to finish his blocks. Stays low with his pads and shows an ability to anchor. Good lateral ability as well helps him when pulling as a guard or on kick-slides as a tackle. Athletic testing never really lived up to the production seen on tape. Definitely a big project for the offensive line staff charged with his selection. Footwork, hand placement and quickness off the line all could use some sharpening. Appears to be better at guard with the body of a tackle.

OVERVIEW: Adams finished his career with Illinois as a two-time All-Big Ten honoree, team captain and one of the top Canadian-born players in college football. He showed versatility by starting at left guard to begin the year, then made the switch to right tackle in Week 3. His position flexibility will be coveted by teams wanting a late-round value. There's still plenty to work on, especially if anyone wants to use him at tackle, but in the right situation, there's an opportunity for a skill set like Adams' to accelerate.
