BIOGRAPHY: Three-year starter awarded All-Conference honors the past two seasons. Led Michigan in tackles as a senior posting 92/3/10. Junior-year totals included 47 tackles.
POSITIVES: Nice-sized safety who's at his best defending the run. Physical, hard-hitting, and aggressive. Plays heads-up football, displays a straight-line burst of speed, and effective facing the action. Quickly breaks on the play, shows ability in zone coverage, and forceful moving downhill.
NEGATIVES: Struggles in man coverage situations, getting turned around and guessing wrong. Slow shedding blocks. Lacks top sideline-to-sideline range.
ANALYSIS: Adams is a smart player with physicality in his game. Offers potential as a conventional strong safety or in a zone defense.
