Overview:

Adams was a tackling machine for LSU, coming up with 209 tackles, 17.5 for loss, he also had good interception numbers with 5, and broke up 15 passes. He is also versatile, as he can lineup at strong safety, in the slot as a cornerback, and at linebacker if needed. He also has good speed. He has good size, is a hard hitter, and a sure solid tackler. He does miss some easy tackles at times, and gets overpowered by offensive lineman when blitzing. But Adams seems like the most complete Safety in this years class, and should be a 1st round pick, along with vying to be the first safety selected in this years draft.
