Josh Adams
Position: RB
Class:  5Sr
School: Wake Forest
Conference: Atlantic Coast
HT: 5-10
WT: 179
40 Time: 4.62
Biography: Senior totals included 91/316/3 when he served in a backup role. Junior numbers included a career-best 113/541/4.

Positives: "Smallish yet elusive ball carrier with outstanding vision and instincts. Displays a lot of quickness in his running, sets up defenders, and makes them miss. Creates yardage in the open field, keeps his feet moving, and works to break tackles. Weaves his way through traffic to pick up positive yardage. Shows the ability to cut back against the grain without losing momentum. Solid receiver out of the backfield."

Negatives: Undersized and not a ball carrier who breaks tackles. Was never very productive on the college level nor able to wrest away the starting position.

Analysis: Adams was a solid ball carrier for Wake Forest and projects as a third-down back at the next level. He is a prospect who must make his mark on special teams.
