Adams finished his career at Notre Dame by playing in 38 career games, where he had 481 rushes, for 3198 rushing yards, and 20 rushing touchdowns. He also had 41 catches, for 336 receiving yards, and 2 receiving touchdowns. He has great size, along with great speed, is a tough runner, and has good vision. He was a workhorse back for the Irish, he is a very powerful back, ha good instincts, and was a scoring machine. He is also a good pass catching back, and an all around good blocking back. He also breaks tackles with ease, makes defenders miss with ease, and is tough to take down. On the other hand, he does tends to get stuffed quite a bit. With that said, I view Adams as a late day 2, to early day 3 pick when it is all said and done.
