Overview:

Adams was very productive at South Florida, where he played in 44 games, had 137 catches, for 1982 receiving yards, and 16 receiving touchdowns. He has good size, he also has good speed, he is a solid pass catcher, he is also a good blocking receiver, he is a go-to receiver, and he is a good route runner. He also is an offensive play maker, he catches just about everything thrown his way, he does a good job of making defenders miss, and he does a good job of breaking tackles. He is also an explosive play maker. On the other side, he has had issues with fumbling, and holding onto the ball, and he had an ankle injury while at South Florida, which caused him to miss the East-West Shrine Game. With that said, I see Adams as a late day 3 pick, but more than likely he will end up going undrafted.
