A vertical route runner who does a nice job using some shiftiness off the line in order to slip the press and when he's able to release to the outside he can cleanly slip the bump, drop his pad level to shrug off contact and get into his route. However, on his outside release he simply isn't explosive enough to quickly get past opposing defensive backs and can be easily re-routed off the line.
Does a nice job tracking the football vertically down the field. Doesn't do a great job plucking the football off his frame and high pointing the play, but seems to have a slight second gear when the ball is in the air and can make plays behind defenders.
However, looks too tight in the hips and leggy to consistently get in and out of his breaks cleanly on sharply breaking routes and separate at the next level. Does a better job selling his post/corner route down the field than going to get the football, but he strikes me as a vertical route runner only.
Impression: Has a nice-sized frame with decent speed down the field once he gets going, but looks limited as more of a vertical pass catcher. Reminds me a bit of a poor man's Devin Aromashodu and is a fringe roster guy."
Positive: Adequately sized receiver who is very effective picking up yardage after the reception. Plays with good balance and body control and gets vertical in the air to make difficult catches. Nicely makes the reception in stride, lays out for the tough grab, and display soft hands. Shows a sense of timing,plays with good awareness, and is very quick transitioning from making the catch to running after the reception. Comes back to the ball out of breaks and extends his hands to make the reception away from his frame.
Negative: One-speed receiver and lacks a second gear.
Analysis: Adams was a consistent pass catching force for UTEP the past three seasons and has a nose for the end zone. He's one of the more underrated prospects at the wide out position and possesses all the skills necessary to make it is a fifth receiver in the NFL."
Strengths: Great size. Has the vertical ability to put points on the board in the skinny post plays. Deceptively fast player. Has the productivity. Long arms and natural hands.
Weaknesses: May be too lean. Main argument being that he can't be the jam. Disappeared in less important games, which may indicate laziness or other character concerns.
Projection: 5th round projection just based on physical ability and productivity. This projection is likely to slip down the boards after his combine interviews."
Heading into his senior campaign, Adams was hoping to recapture some of the magic from 2008. He did just that and more. Despite some troubles in the passing game, Adams had a huge season. He caught 47 passes for 1,070 yards and 14 touchdowns. The opposing defense knew exactly who quarterback Trevor Vittatoe was going to throw to, but they still could not stop Adams. His 22.8 yards per catch average was extremely impressive and Adams was a threat to score every time he touched the ball.
With his combination of size and speed, Adams should hear his name called late in the draft. He is not the strongest receiver around and that could cause some problems against more physical corners in the NFL, but he is pretty close to 6-3 and has good speed."
